Assessing Student Learning With Anatomical Focus in Oral and Nasal Suction Videos


Understanding suctioning techniques and the cannula structure can be challenging. This study aimed to improve students’ understanding through instructional videos on nasal and oral anatomy, evaluating the impact on recognizing anatomical importance, motivation to learn, and medical safety awareness. The study involved 105 nursing college students who were divided into two groups: (1) an experimental group of 38 participants who watched a video with an anatomical perspective and (2) a target group of 46 participants who watched a general video. Both groups completed a self-administered questionnaire before and after viewing the video. The questionnaire included the "Nursing Student Risk Sensitivity Scale", and suction-related items. A two-factor analysis of variance was conducted, using "type of video (between participants)" and "before/after viewing (time: within participants)" as independent variables and the score of each factor as the dependent variable. No interaction effects were observed for any of the eight factors. However, we found a significant main effect of time on all eight factors (F(1,82)=8.60~81.94, p<.001). In the experimental group, free descriptions revealed comments such as "I learned the length of the catheter to be inserted for nasal suction," etc. Over time, the videos’ effects became apparent. Though quantitative analysis did not confirm a direct learning impact, qualitative feedback from the experimental group highlights the educational value of anatomical perspective videos. Future research should improve video content and assessment methods to underscore their significance.
