Comparison of the effects of two different teaching methods in blood pressure measurement training: a randomized controlled study

Objective: To compare the effects of a high-fidelity simulator and conventional teaching model used during blood pressure measurement training on students’ self-confidence, self-efficacy and anxiety levels. Methods: A randomized controlled trial design was used. The study was conducted on 59 first-year nursing students of a university in Amasya, Turkey. ‘Self-Confidence Scale,’ ‘general Self-Efficacy Scale’ and ‘Beck Anxiety Scale’ were used to collect the data. A high-fidelity simulator used in blood pressure measurement training was applied to the experimental group, while the conventional method in which the students practice on their peers was applied to the control group. Chi-square, Mann–Whitney U test and the Wilcoxon signed-rank test were used to determine the difference between the two groups’ average. Results: No statistically significant difference was found between students’ pre-test and post-test total scores of self-confidence, general self-efficacy and anxiety scales with the high-fidelity simulator and the conventional model (P> 0.05). A significant increase was noted in inner self-confidence and self-efficacy scores of the group working on the high-fidelity simulator (P

Objective: The Dizziness Handicap Inventory (DHI) is the most commonly used quality of life measure for vestibular disorders. However, there is wide variability in scores, and little is known about which variables contribute to dizziness-related quality of life. Our goal was to investigate the key demographic and symptom-related factors to that account for DHI variance. Study Design: Cross-sectional survey. Setting: Tertiary referral center. Patients: Adult patients presenting to a dizziness clinic. Main Outcome Measure: DHI variance explained by multiple linear regression. Results: Seventy subjects were i...

Conclusions: Our data support the hypothesis that increased anxiety may play a role in visuo-vestibular interactions; moreover, they are not inconsistent with the hypothesis that OKS might provoke a “threatening effect,” leading to gaze bias during examination.

CONCLUSIONS: SMC is a multi-caused symptom. They are associated with lower memory performance, but also with variables related to health, social aspects and lifestyle. When faced with a patient with SMC, which may be due to cognitive impairment because of Alzheimer's disease, these associations should be taken into account to assess this risk and know when follow-up is most needed.
