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...

Medical literature is replete with evidence regarding physical rehabilitation of the amputee; however, scant attention has been paid to psychological rehabilitation. The objective was to perform an integrative review of the published medical evidence regarding amputee peer support in the civilian population and provide an evidence-based clinical practice recommendation. This study was based on an exhaustive examination of the civilian amputee peer support medical evidence, bibliographic search, and on the experience of the authors when performing this integrative review...

The purpose of this case series was to assess the performance of a concentrated surfactant-based gel (CSG) dressing on 18 patients in the outpatient setting over 4 weeks. Wounds selected were full thickness, had been presented for greater than 4 weeks, and were located on the lower extremities. Patients were given the CSG dressing and instructed on its use. On follow-up clinic visits, the wound was assessed, measurements were obtained, Pressure Ulcer Scale for Healing (PUSH) Tool scores completed, and satisfaction with the dressing was solicited...

The purpose of this study was to implement and evaluate quality outcomes including referral, enrollment, and completion rates of a new peripheral artery disease (PAD)-specific supervised exercise therapy (SET) program within a preexisting clinical exercise wellness program and to evaluate the clinical effectiveness and patient-centered outcomes derived from 12 weeks of PAD-specific SET. Recruited participants completed an individualized, minimally supervised, PAD-specific SET program based on the AHA-ACC guidelines...

Extravasation and infiltration are among the most common intravenous therapy complications. For noncytotoxic agents, the incidence of extravasation remains unknown. There has been little research into extravasation due to ethical considerations limiting controlled research; most evidences are based on small, uncontrolled trials or case reports. The purpose of this study was to assess the knowledge level regarding noncytotoxic medications extravasation and its associated factors among staff nurses.A descriptive correlational design using self-administered questionnaire was employed...

Screening for abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) has proven to reduce AAA-related mortality, but how the knowledge of having an untreated AAA affects health and daily life requires further clarification. The aim was to investigate the psychosocial consequences and sense of coherence (SOC) in 65-year-old men diagnosed with AAA and participating in a national screening program during a 6-month follow-up compared with men with no AAA. The single-center cohort study included 52 men with AAA and 118 men without AAA...

Information literacy is essential in facilitating evidence-based practice (EBP) activities. In vascular nursing, the implementation of EBP is of utmost importance. Best practice grounded in research evidence can contribute to improved patient care outcomes for individuals with vascular disease. The following paper discusses information literacy competencies for nurses to develop in the context of EBP, with an emphasis on formulating a clinical question and searching for evidence. Relevant health science information resources are described, including their value and purpose in the 6S model of evidence...
