Hepatic encephalopathy (HE) markedly reduces an individual's quality of life as measured by established scoring systems. However, the experiences of having HE that can be assumed to cause the loss of quality of life have not yet been examined. This study aimed to explore how individuals with cirrhosis experienced overt HE by means of an in-depth interview with a tailored semistructured interview guide and qualitative analysis. Eight patients with cirrhosis who had clinically recovered from disorientation, somnolence, and stupor due to episodic HE Grade II or III were interviewed...

Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is increasing in children. When this lifelong illness is diagnosed in childhood, especially during adolescence, it may have a negative impact on children's quality of life. The aim of the present study was to illuminate the meaning of children's lived experience of ulcerative colitis. Seven children aged between 10 and 18 years were recruited from University Hospital South Sweden and interviewed about the phenomenon under scrutiny. Data were analyzed by means of a phenomenological hermeneutical method...

Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is a systemic, chronic autoimmune disease of the digestive tract. The etiology and pathophysiology of IBD is not fully understood, though it is believed to be due to a complex interaction among the patient's genotype, immune system, and environmental factors. Inflammatory bowel disease is frequently accompanied by extraintestinal manifestations that occur in almost half of all patients. The most common extraintestinal manifestation that occurs is joint disease, collectively termed the arthropathies of IBD...

Colorectal carcinoma is one of the most common malignancies worldwide and the most prevalent cause of cancer mortality in China. The Miles operation and permanent colostomy are effective treatment. However, these affect the quality of life of patients as they alter normal defecation. Self-efficacy is used to define an individuals' assessments of their ability to perform a specific behavior successfully. It is regarded as an important belief that can predict health behaviors. The aim of this study was to explore the effect of a self-efficacy intervention on the quality of life of patients with a permanent colostomy...

This study aimed to determine whether functional gastrointestinal disorders are more common among nurses with self-reported poor sleep. In total, 468 nurses working the day shift or rotating shifts completed two questionnaires: the questionnaire for irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) using Rome III criteria and the Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index (PSQI). The prevalence of poor sleep was 41.04% (95% confidence interval, CI: [36.23, 45.85]), and poor sleep was significantly more common among rotating-shift nurses than among day-shift nurses (50...

The objective of this study was to determine the difference between gastric residual volume measurements without giving air compared to giving 30 ml of air via the feeding tube. This experimental study was on 60 subjects fed enterally at a university hospital. Data collection was with the 12-item "Gastric Residual Volume Measurement Instructions" and "Gastric Residual Volume Observation Form." The same subjects composed experimental and control groups. Gastric residual volume measurements were taken before feedings at 10:00 a...

Patients with greater inflammatory bowel disease activity readily identify poorer psychosocial outcomes; however, the role of gender, disease type, and individual illness perceptions facets are less well known. This study aimed to characterize the role of illness perceptions, gender, and disease type on anxiety, depression, and quality of life. Eighty-one patients diagnosed with inflammatory bowel disease (39 men, mean age 35 years) attending a tertiary hospital outpatient clinic were studied. Questionnaires used included the Manitoba Index, the Brief Illness Perceptions Questionnaire, Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale, and the World Health Organization Brief Quality of Life Scale...

Constipation is a common problem in patients and the general population. Hot packs can relieve constipation, but the effect on small-intestinal motility remains unknown. We aimed to determine the effect of hot packs on small-intestinal motility and subjective feelings associated with bowel activity after removing the hot packs. Thirty-four normal adults were assigned to either an experimental group (n = 18) or a control group (n = 16). Hot and normal packs were applied for 10 minutes to the lumbar regions of the experimental and control groups, respectively...

The population in the United States is aging, and persons older than 65 years account for over 50% of healthcare costs. Preventing functional decline in older adults through patient education and optimal discharge planning is one way we can succeed in decreasing healthcare costs, readmissions, and mortality in this population. The aim of this article is to present viable healthcare policy options to prevent or minimize functional decline in the older adult, regardless of what health-related facility the person enters...

Health-related quality of life (HRQOL) has become an important outcome for patients with liver cirrhosis as the number of transplantation candidates increases by the progression of treatment strategies. Falls and fall-related injuries are common in patients with liver cirrhosis and negatively affect HRQOL. Many factors increase the risk for falls such as minimal hepatic encephalopathy, psychoactive drugs, muscle strength, autonomic dysfunction, hyponatremia, and sleep problems. It is important to understand the underlying mechanisms for falls in cirrhotic patients to prevent severe injuries such as fractures, decrease healthcare costs, and improve HRQOL...

Because the ileocecal valve could theoretically influence the progression of the videocapsule, we aimed to characterize its posed delay in videocapsule passage to the cecum. A retrospective study was conducted of all procedures in which patients experienced in the same day colonoscopy with ileal biopsy and videocapsule endoscopy. In all 11 patients who satisfied the criteria, at least one biopsy-induced ileal mucosal defect could be identified. There was a mean delay in the passage of the videocapsule through the ileocecal valve of more than 43 minutes (range: 9 seconds to 143 minutes)...

The purpose of this study was to explore the lived experiences of individuals living with an ileoanal pouch. A qualitative, phenomenological methodology was used to elicit detailed accounts of the impact of living with an ileoanal pouch. Ten individuals having an ileoanal pouch, formed as a consequence of ulcerative colitis, participated in the study. Semistructured interviews were conducted and analyzed using interpretative phenomenological analysis. The following 4 themes emerged from the analysis: "a flood of emotions"; "changed body image"; "changes in lifestyle"; and "intimacy and sexual relationships...

There has been a growing interest in a patient-centered model of care in inflammatory bowel disease; however, no relevant study using a mixed methodology has been conducted to date. Thus, our multidisciplinary group aimed to explore the issue of patient involvement in care among the inflammatory bowel disease community. A mixed-methods anonymous survey was conducted during the Crohn's and Colitis UK annual event. Summary statistics were used to describe the sample, and a simple thematic analysis identified key themes in qualitative responses...
