Intelligent, consciousness, pre-operative nursing contributes much to have the patient achieve an optimum condition that favors a satisfactory postoperative progress and minimizes the possibility of complication. Respiratory (pulmonary) complications are the second most common reason for unexpected death. Post operative pulmonary complications are major cause of overall post operative morbidity and mortality. It was found that pre operative teaching of surgery patients reduced pulmonary complications up to very extend. Aim: to assess effectiveness of planned teaching program (PTP), such as deep breathing, coughing exercise, positioning and early ambulation to prevent post operative pulmonary complications among surgical patients in selected hospitals at Tumkur district, Karnataka. Materials and methods: The study was conducted using a quasi-experimental design of pre-test post-test control group design in the year 2010. 60 samples were selected, 30 in experimental group and 30 in control group respectively. First knowledge of both groups was assessed and PTP introduced to experimental group only. After five days of PTP post test was done in both groups. Findings: there was a significant difference in the knowledge level between experimental group and control group after PTP. Conclusion: PTP was found to be effective in improving the knowledge level regarding prevention of post- operative pulmonary complications in surgery patients.
