BACKGROUND: Patients undergoing surgical treatment of abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) should receive adequate information about the disease, treatment options, and self-care. Patients' learning needs should be acknowledged. The aim was to describe the perceived learning needs in patients with AAA. A secondary aim was to explore their experience of methods for patient education. METHODS: Three focus group interviews were conducted with 14 patients treated with open or endovascular repair of AAA...

Intravenous amiodarone is considered an effective treatment option for cardiac ventricular and atrial arrhythmias. Peripheral infusion of amiodarone may cause blood vessels irritation and phlebitis that is the most common complication of this drug by this route even when it is administered within recommended dosing limits. The effect of injection-site splinting on the occurrence of phlebitis among a group of cardiac arrhythmia patients receiving peripherally infused amiodarone. This research is a clinical trial on patients of Tehran Heart Center who were hospitalized due to cardiac arrhythmias...

INTRODUCTION: Warfarin is the most common oral anticoagulant for the treatment and prevention of thromboembolic disease. However, it has a wide interpatient variability in dose requirements due to various genetic and clinical factors. MATERIALS AND METHODS: This study investigated the effect of clinical and genetic factors on the variability of warfarin dose requirements in 147 South African patients (81 white and 66 black). The study was performed at a University Hospital Anticoagulation Clinic managed by nursing sisters at the Charlotte Maxeke Johannesburg Academic Hospital...

The physical and mental needs of patients with coronary heart disease are affected by both the disease and the heart surgery in different ways. Such diverse needs require different approaches. A continuous care model, which involves orientation, sensitization, control, and evaluation, may favorably influence patient outcomes following coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG). We were interested to ascertain whether a continuous care model might lead to improved quality of life, compared with a routine care model, in patients undergoing CABG...

Poor adherence to health-related behaviors can have serious health consequences. Cardiac rehabilitation has been documented to have physiological and psychosocial benefits; however, optimizing adherence to exercise in patients with cardiovascular disease is a particular challenge. We recently completed a large, 6-year randomized trial of exercise training in elderly patients with abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) disease (50-85 years), which provided an opportunity to describe adherence strategies in this unique group of elderly individuals...

BACKGROUND: Survival rates in the elderly after cardiac surgery have improved over the last decades and therewith more attention is directed toward Quality of Life (QoL) as a patient reported outcome measure. OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to explore QoL in patients one year after coronary artery bypass grafting, with special interest in the elderly patients (≥80 years). METHODS: In a quantitative, retrospective single-center study patients with isolated coronary artery bypass grafting (eg, nonvalve) surgery aged 80 years or older and operated in 2013 were included (n = 32)...

INTRODUCTION: Generally, nursing interventions during the acute stages following a stroke aim at preventing secondary brain injury (intracranial hypertension), maintaining the airways (due to paralysis of the pharynx muscles), providing general body support (vital signs, fluid and electrolyte balance), and anticipating the occurrence of complications (atelectasis and pneumonia). AIM: This literature review is to prioritize nursing interventions for acute stroke and to update nursing roles and input considering recommended levels of evidence of care to date...

Elizabeth Lopes-Costa, Elaine Amato-Vealey
Peripheral vascular disease (PVD) is a chronic disabling illness that frequently results in the occlusion of arteries in lower limbs and may cause ischemia, gangrene, or infection. The single most significant factor contributing to both the onset and progression of PVD is smoking, which has addictive properties. Once smoking becomes a habitual behavior, combined with the atherosclerotic process, a disastrous pathway ensues. The aim of this project was to gain an understanding of the beliefs of patients with PVD who smoked...

OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the quality of life and analyze the association between personal and health characteristics in patient quality of life for those with chronic ulcers. METHOD: A cross-sectional study, nonprobabilistic. The questionnaire to evaluate personal and health characteristics and the Ferrans and Power Quality of Life Index-Wound Version were used for the data collection...

Jasmiry Bennett
In the United States, health care providers have diagnosed 29.1 million people with diabetes. Uncontrolled diabetes is the main reason for limb loss. This review addresses the lack of psychological support after limb loss. Few scholarly sources analyze the psychological aspects of limb loss before and after amputation. These sources report that patients do not have a clear understanding of their disease process and that patients often report a lack of empathy and communication from health care providers. There is no standardization of postoperative care instructions causing great confusion and increasing anxiety for both the patient and the caregivers...

BACKGROUND: Considering the growing number of patients who suffer from cardiovascular and coronary artery disease and the significant importance of angiography in the diagnosis of coronary artery disease, this study investigated the effects of position change on the acute complications of coronary angiography. METHODS: This study was a randomized clinical trial. Sixty patients undergoing coronary angiography, which was performed by a single operator were selected by convenience sampling method and were assigned to intervention or control groups by randomized block design (30 cases in each group)...
