Effective and reliable venous access is one of the cornerstones of modern medical therapy in oncology. The focus of this prospective observational research is to study the various indications of a peripherally inserted central catheter (PICC) in different solid and hematological malignancies and the various complications and outcomes in the pediatric and adult cancer patients. This study was conducted in a prospective observational study design and collected data of patients with a diagnosis of any cancer, at a tertiary care oncology hospital in Ahmadabad, Gujarat, India, during a 2-year period...

The aim of the present study was to assess the oncology nurses' knowledge about central line catheters and their care, complications, and applications. A descriptive cross-sectional design was used. A sample of 150 nurses from oncology units participated. A knowledge-based test consisting of 50 multiple choice questions was used to test the nurses' knowledge level. The results showed that overall satisfactory level of nurses' knowledge was 50% (75 nurses). The results indicated that there was a significant difference in the nurses' knowledge according to their academic qualification level (χ2  = 7...

Coronary angiography (CAG) is a stressful event for many patients. This article aimed to explore the Iranian patients' experiences of undergoing CAG. In this qualitative study that is a substudy of a larger study, 15 patients (seven men and eight women) with a mean age of 49.8 ± 11.6 years were recruited from three hospitals in Shiraz, southwest Iran. Data were collected using semistructured, face-to-face interview before undergoing CAG. Interviews were audiotaped and transcribed. Data were analyzed using qualitative content analysis...

This study was carried out to find the effect of depression on adherence to antihypertensive medications in elderly individuals with hypertension. The descriptive study population consisted of hypertensive individuals aged 65 years and older, who presented to one of the three Family Health Centers located in the provincial center of Erzincan. No sampling was attempted, and 350 people who met the inclusion criteria were included in the study. The study data were collected between May and September 2014 by face-to-face interviews using a descriptive questionnaire, the Medication Adherence Self-Efficacy Scale-Short Form for hypertensive patients, and the Geriatric Depression Scale...

The prevalence and debilitating nature of peripheral artery disease (PAD) mandate the development and aggressive implementation of the most efficacious treatment strategies available. Research has clearly demonstrated that supervised exercise in individuals with PAD and lifestyle-limiting claudication leads to improved outcomes in the short term. An important factor in determining the relative value of exercise training in PAD rehabilitation is the extent to which the benefits are sustained over time. The aim of this study was to examine the long-term outcome status of participants in the EXercise Training to Reduce Claudication: Arm ERgometry versus Treadmill Walking (EXERT) trial...

This article describes feasibility of direct and indirect recruitment methods for exercise studies designed for older adults with peripheral artery disease (PAD). Recruitment of older adults with PAD for participation in exercise studies has been particularly challenging. Age, risk factors, and comorbid conditions affect physical activity in older adults with PAD. Barriers to exercise, such as safety, health, and age-related changes, contribute to lack of participation in exercise studies. Various direct and indirect recruitment approaches and participant responses, along with reasons for nonparticipation, are categorized into participant demographic, community, and research-related barriers...

Uncertainty impacts negatively on adaptation and disease outcomes. During recovery, coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) patients experience uncertainty, symptom distress, and learning needs. This study aimed to examine predictors associated with uncertainty among CABG patients. This cross-sectional correlational study recruited CABG patients conveniently from out-patient clinics 1 month after discharge. Participants completed a self-administered questionnaire which included: demographic questionnaire, Mishel's Uncertainty of Illness Scale, Cardiac Symptoms Survey, and Cardiac Patients Learning Needs...

Conventional supervised exercise programs (SEPs) for claudicants are traditionally based on time-constrained, group-based structured programs usually at a hospital site. Uptake of an SEP is poor, despite the high-level evidence demonstrating its clinical effectiveness; therefore, alternative forms of exercise programs are needed which are more acceptable to patients. This study aimed to explore a range of exercise modalities to determine patient preferences for exercise delivery on a national level. This was a questionnaire survey to identify and incorporate patient preferences when designing a multicenter nationwide health-service evaluation of patient preference to exercise in the United Kingdom's National Health Service (the PREFER study)...

The aim of the present study was to determine the knowledge and practices of deep vein thrombosis risks and prophylaxis among nurses and to investigate the relation between descriptive characteristics and knowledge and practices of nurses. This descriptive study was conducted with the registered nurses who currently work in a university hospital of Northern Cyprus. Total 165 voluntary nurses composed the sample of the study. A questionnaire prepared by the researchers on the basis of the literature was used as the data collection tool in this study...

The aim of this study is to describe the experiences of critical care nurses (CCNs) when performing successful peripheral intravenous catheterization (PIVC) on adult inpatients in difficult situations. This study uses a descriptive design with a qualitative approach. Semistructured interviews were given to CCNs (n = 22) at a general central county hospital in northern Sweden. The interview text was analyzed with qualitative thematic content analysis. Three themes emerged: "releasing time and creating peace," "feeling self-confidence in the role of expert nurse," and "technical interventions promoting success...

The study focused on assessing the effect of nurse-led deep vein thrombosis prevention training on patients' knowledge and self-care practices. Forty patients participated in this quasi-experimental study. Participants were trained by the guidebook prepared by the researchers before the surgery. Data were collected with Autar Deep Vein Thrombosis Risk Assessment Scale and questionnaires before and after the training. The questionnaires were prepared by the researcher. Data were evaluated with Mann-Whitney U, Wilcoxon, Kruskal-Wallis variance analysis, significance of difference test between two means, and one-way variance analysis tests...

Postoperative infections can complicate patient care and increase health care costs. A vascular preventative bundle was implemented at a large teaching/research intensive hospital to decrease surgical site infections (SSIs) with vascular surgery patients. The aim of this study was to measure fidelity to the bundle and determine if implementation of the vascular SSI bundle reduced the rate of SSIs. Three periods of data were collected, and they are identified as preimplementation (period 1), early implementation (period 2), and postimplementation (period 3)...

The aim of the study was to conduct a retrospective chart review of patients who underwent betadine/bacitracin continuous irrigation (BBCI) for vascular graft infections (VGIs) to review its use as a treatment option. A retrospective chart review from 2013 to 2017 was conducted of patients with VGIs that were treated with BBCI postremoval of the infected graft. The BBCI is a continuous infusion of 0.25% betadine in normal saline at 0.3 mL/kg/h for 48 hours then followed by bacitracin infusion with a concentration of 50,000 units bacitracin/per liter normal saline at 0...
