BACKGROUND: Periodontal disease is associated with cardiovascular disease, and patients should be aware of this risk and seek dental care. OBJECTIVE: In this study, the authors sought to identify the barriers and predictors for seeking oral healthcare among patients with cardiovascular disease. METHODS: With the use of a cross-sectional descriptive study design, 307 patients with cardiovascular disease attending cardiac rehabilitation/outpatient cardiac clinics were surveyed between 2016 and 2017 in Sydney, Australia...

BACKGROUND: Caregiver contribution to heart failure (HF) self-care maintenance and management is important in HF care. Literature remains unclear regarding which practices caregivers perform to contribute to self-care for patients with HF, especially in Southern Europe. OBJECTIVE: The objective of this study was to describe caregiver contributions to HF self-care maintenance (ie, treatment adherence and symptom monitoring) and management (ie, managing HF symptoms when they occur)...

BACKGROUND: Cognitive impairment is highly prevalent in patients with heart failure (HF), negatively impacting self-care and consequently increasing mortality. Although computerized cognitive training (CCT) has been found to be efficacious in improving cognition in older adults, little is known about the efficacy of CCT in patients with HF. PURPOSE: This brief systematic review examined the feasibility and efficacy of CCT on cognitive functioning in patients with HF...

Lei Chen, Yih-Kai Chan, Lucy Busija, Tone M Norekval, Barbara Riegel, Simon Stewart
BACKGROUND: The impact of different patterns of multimorbidity in heart failure (HF) on health outcomes is unknown. OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study was to test the hypothesis that, independent of the extent of comorbidity, there are distinctive phenotypes of multimorbidity that convey an increased risk for premature mortality in patients hospitalized with HF. METHODS: We analyzed the clinical profile and health outcomes of 787 patients hospitalized with HF participating in a multidisciplinary HF management program with a minimum 12-month follow-up...

Marianne K Schallmo, Sharon Dudley-Brown, Patricia M Davidson
CONTEXT: Heart failure is a chronic complex syndrome that is common and burdensome. International clinical practice guidelines recommend that healthcare providers communicate palliative care options with patients with heart failure. OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study was to conduct an integrative review to evaluate how healthcare providers perceived communication barriers to offering information to individuals in the palliative phase of heart failure. METHODS: Four databases and the gray literature were searched from January 1987 to February 2017...

Hisham A Badreldin, Ghada Albassam, Maha Aldoughaim, Majed Alyami
BACKGROUND: Catheter-directed thrombolysis (CDT) is one of the emerging venous thromboembolism management modalities. There are fairly limited data regarding the use of direct-thrombin inhibitors (DTIs) in patients with heparin-induced thrombocytopenia and undergoing CDT. OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study was to provide a summary of the available evidence supporting the use of DTIs in patients undergoing CDT. METHODS AND RESULTS: We included 6 case reports in our analysis after searching for peer-reviewed articles and case reports in multiple research engines...

Dillon J Dzikowicz, Mary G Carey
BACKGROUND: The spatial QRS-T angle is a measure of repolarization heterogeneity and may be a predictor of poor ventricular health. It is unknown whether a relationship exists between QRS-T angle and blood pressure (BP) during exercise. OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the potential relationship between QRS-T angle and BP during exercise, which may be indicative of ventricular stretch. METHODS: Ambulatory 12-lead 24-hour Holter electrocardiographic monitoring for QRS-T angle measurement was followed by exercise testing with BP (mm Hg) recordings taken preexercise, maximum achieved BP during exercise, and 2 minutes postexercise...

BACKGROUND: Self-efficacy is a critical factor for quality of life in patients who undergo coronary artery bypass grafting, as well as for their family caregivers. However, there is lack of knowledge about whether patients' self-efficacy and caregivers' perceptions of patient self-efficacy are associated with quality of life in patient and caregiver dyads. OBJECTIVES: The aims of this study were to compare self-efficacy and quality of life between patients and family caregivers and to examine whether patients' and caregivers' perceptions of patient self-efficacy were associated with their own and their partner's quality of life in patient and caregiver dyads who were waiting for patients' coronary artery bypass grafting...

BACKGROUND: We have a limited understanding of the biological underpinnings of symptoms in heart failure (HF), particularly in response to left ventricular assist device (LVAD) implantation. OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study was to quantify the degree to which symptoms and biomarkers change in parallel from before implantation through the first 6 months after LVAD implantation in advanced HF. METHODS: This was a prospective cohort study of 101 patients receiving an LVAD for the management of advanced HF...

#10
Harleah G Buck, Judith Hupcey, Raul Juárez-Vela, Ercole Vellone, Barbara Riegel
BACKGROUND: Heart failure (HF) dyadic self-care science is advancing rapidly, as evidenced by recent theoretical work, literature reviews, and multiple empiric studies. Typologies, once considered archaic, are now viewed as person-oriented classification systems that allow a whole-system view of information patterns. This whole-system view is particularly needed to understand complex tasks like dyadic HF self-care. PURPOSE: The purpose of this article is to review the initial conceptualization of an HF care dyadic typology and the present advances in our thinking and suggest future directions for this clinically relevant classification system...

BACKGROUND: In patients with heart failure (HF), high dietary sodium intake is common and associated with HF symptoms, poor health-related quality of life (HRQOL), and high hospitalization rates. PURPOSE: The aims of this study were to examine the feasibility of a tailored dietary intervention with a practical tool (MyFitnessPal) and to obtain preliminary data about the effects on sodium intake, factors affecting sodium intake (knowledge, skills, experiences, confidence, perceived benefits and barriers, and depressive symptoms), HF symptoms, and HRQOL...

BACKGROUND: The literature on caregiver contributions to heart failure (HF) patient self-care has grown rapidly during the last few years, but theory guiding this growth is lacking. OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this article is to describe a Situation-Specific Theory of Caregiver Contributions to HF Self-care. RESULTS: We describe theoretical assumptions, the process by which caregivers contribute to HF self-care, factors influencing caregiver contributions to HF self-care, known predictors (caregiver, patient, and dyadic related) and outcomes of caregiver contributions to HF...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate whether home or ambulatory blood pressure (BP) monitoring was associated with preclinical hypertensive cardiovascular target organ damage (TOD). METHODS: We enrolled participants with prehypertension and stage 1 hypertension from 11 medical centers within the Taiwan hypertension-associated cardiac disease consortium. Recordings of clinical BP measurement, ambulatory BP monitoring for 24 hours, and home BP monitoring during morning and evening were made...
