Nursing students were not exempted. This study examined COVID-19 anxiety syndrome among Filipino nursing students and whether significant differences existed according to gender. <strong>Methods:</strong> This cross-sectional study used the COVID-19 Anxiety Syndrome Scale (C-19ASS) as the primary tool for data collection. Significant gender differences were tested using the Mann-Whitney U test. <strong>Results: </strong>Results showed that the composite score in the C-19ASS was 3.92 (SD=.69) indicating a moderate to a high level of anxiety syndrome features associated with COVID-19 among nursing students. The mean scores in the preservation and avoidance factors were 3.94 (SD=.76) and 3.88 (SD=.91), respectively. Female nursing students had a significantly higher (p=.004) COVID-19 anxiety syndrome compared to male nursing students.<strong> Conclusion: </strong>The global outbreak of COVID-19 brought about extraordinary anxiety syndrome and stressful situations among nursing students. Nursing students, particularly female students, may benefit from additional support and guidance during the COVID-19 pandemic. </em></p> Ryan Michael Flores Oducado ##submission.copyrightStatement## https://jurnalkeperawatanglobal.com/index.php/jkg/article/view/170 Fri, 12 Mar 2021 00:00:00 +0000 A Qualitative Study Of Emergency Nurses’ Basic Life Support Practices In A Ghanaian University Hospital https://jurnalkeperawatanglobal.com/index.php/jkg/article/view/217 <p><strong>ABSTRACT </strong></p> <p><strong><em>Background: </em></strong><em>Medical emergencies are common but Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) incidences are rare; yet when they occur could be life threatening leading either to disability or death. During SCA incidents, health care professionals will be required to act skilfully and swiftly to restart the heart and stabilise the patient until advanced care can be accessed or provided. There is evidence that victims of cardio and/or respiratory arrest whilst in the hospital will have improved outcomes if Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) is initiated within three to five minutes. The objectives of this study were to find if emergency nurses were adequately resourced to practice Basic Life Support (BLS), and the ease or difficulties with which they practice BLS. </em></p> <p><strong><em>Methods:</em></strong><em> This Qualitative Descriptive (QD) study was conducted at the University of Cape Coast Hospital (UCCH) between June and September 2019. Six nurses were purposively recruited for the study. All interviews were audio-recorded and transcribed verbatim. The transcription was done with Microsoft Word and transferred to Microsoft Excel for thematic analysis using an inductive descriptive approach. Data analysis took a conventional qualitative content analysis approach. </em></p> <p><strong><em>Results:</em></strong><em> Four of the participants were females whilst two were males. During data aggregation and analysis, 17 first-level codes were extracted from which two themes, five categories and six subcategories were obtained for discussion. The major themes were: (1) Basic Life Support (BLS) equipment and material resources, and (2) working environment and human resource. </em></p> <p><strong><em>Conclusion</em></strong><em>: The study found that nurses working at emergency ward at UCCH were adequately resourced and well prepared to practice BLS. They however had challenges as their work seem to be hindered by patients who present to the ward without emergency needs and unavailability of emergency drugs.</em></p> Alex Darteh Afrifa, Mohammed Najimudeen Abdulai, James Kojo Prah ##submission.copyrightStatement## https://jurnalkeperawatanglobal.com/index.php/jkg/article/view/217 Tue, 25 May 2021 07:02:54 +0000 Dhikr Therapy Can Improve Muscle Strength In Non-Hemorrhagic Stroke Patients https://jurnalkeperawatanglobal.com/index.php/jkg/article/view/181 <p><strong><em>Background:</em></strong><em> Non-hemorrhagic stroke is a disease that occurs due to a blockage in certain brain blood vessels. Therefore, the brain area is not supplied with energy and oxygen so that the brain tissue does not function. The problem that occurs in non-hemorrhagic strokes is the weakness of the limbs and facial muscles. Non-pharmacological therapy for non-hemorrhagic stroke sufferers is dhikr therapy. Dhikr therapy relies on feelings and heart to calm the soul and increase muscle strength. This study aims to determine the effect of dhikr therapy on muscle strength in non-hemorrhagic stroke patients </em></p> <p><strong><em>Methods: </em></strong><em>This study used a quasi-experimental research design with pre-and post-test with control group. Non-probability sampling was used to determine the sample, which consisted of 54 respondents: 27 in the treatment group with ROM therapy, dhikr and 27 in the control group with ROM therapy. Manual Muscle Testing (MMT) Instrument is used to measure muscle strength.

Emergency conditions require immediate assistance to prevent death and disability. The community as the first helper holds a very important key to the safety of individuals who are experiencing emergency conditions. Not all people are familiar with the PSC-119 service. The results of the preliminary study also showed that most of the respondents expressed lack of confidence because they had never received any socialization or training on how to provide first aid.</em></p> <p><strong><em>Method</em></strong><strong><em>s</em></strong><strong><em>:</em></strong> <em>a form of experimental research with a pretest-posttest model, with intervention towards respondents related to actions in first aid training</em><em>. </em><em>Respondents in this study were 217 special lay people</em><em>. The sampling technique in this study was random sampling by distributing invitations to special lay people in the city of Surakarta, consisting of members of the Voluntary Corps, health cadres and Linmas Kelurahan at Surakarta City.
