Mechanical ventilation is widely used to treat patients with critical conditions. This treatment is usually applied for difficulty in breathing. The use of mechanical ventilation devices has unique benefits to the patient. However, it can also cause various problems. Reduction in communication rank as one of the most negative experiences in mechanically ventilated patients. Effective communication with ventilator-based patients is essential. Nursing management of a mechanically ventilated patient is challenging on many levels, requiring a wealth of high technical skills. The Patient Communications Board improves communication, maintains information and creates a comfortable, attractive setting for patient, family and health care workers. The research methodology used for the study is a Quasi experimental approach, post-test only design with a comparison group to assess the effect of the communication board on the level of satisfaction over communication among clients on mechanical ventilator. The sample was selected by purposive sampling technique and included 30 (experimental group-15, control group-15), mechanically ventilated patients in PESIMR hospital, Kuppam. The control group patients were provided with routine communication methods, while the experimental group were communicated with communication board. The level of satisfaction on communication was assessed by a 15items rating scale. Data was analysed using both the descriptive and inferential statistics. There was a significant difference in the level of satisfaction on communication among the patients who were communicated using communication board compared to the routine method of communication. The communication board had significantly improved the communication pattern and increased the satisfaction among the patients who are mechanically ventilated.
