The level of knowledge of urgent resuscitation techniques, its proper performance, skillfulness and willingness of non-professional rescuers can decide about next life of people affected by sudden cardiac arrest. Every minute that the resuscitation is not performed a chance of survival of people affected with sudden cardiac arrest decreases by 10 - 12%. GOALS AND METHODOLOGY: The main research problem was an evaluation of the level of knowledge of techniques of cardio-pulmonary resuscitation with public in South Bohemia.

In some cases, the disease might have long incubation time but then very fast progression and in all cases, it ends with death. Nowadays we do not know curative treatment and the patient depends only on palliative treatment. The main goal of my Thesis is to describe a nursing care of a patient with this disease and to emphasize the importance of the palliative care. Partial goal is to describe disease progression (clinical condition of the patient) from the admission to the hospice until the end of her life (total of 27 days) and to increase knowledge about this disease among the medical staff.

Petruš, Michal ; Hladká, Petra (advisor) ; Maffei Svobodová, Ludmila (referee)
The diploma thesis deals with non-invasive and invasive monitoring of the cardiovascular system, focusing on non-medical health workers. The aim of the work was to analyze the knowledge of non-medical health workers in selected areas of cardiovascular monitoring. The data was obtained in the form of a non- standardized questionnaire created by myself. For the research were selected non-medical health workers working in Prague hospitals in coronary units and postoperative cardiac surgery units. The total number of respondents who participated in the research was 108. The results of the survey revealed that non-medical staff are relatively well versed in the issue of cardiovascular monitoring. A rather surprising finding was that most respondents did not use foreign literature to study cardiovascular monitoring. As part of the comparison of the respondents, the better knowledge of cardiovascular monitoring was presented in non-medical staff of the Department of Postoperative Cardiac Surgery. Compared in relation to the highest educational attainment, university graduates have demonstrated a higher level of knowledge than others. Based on achieved data, it was created a study text for newcomers, which contains basic information for better orientation in the given issue. keywords: cardiovascular...
