BACKGROUND: Patient-related delays in acquiring medical care for symptoms of acute coronary syndrome remain unacceptably long. Many clinical and sociodemographic characteristics associated with treatment-seeking delay are known; however, ethnicity has not been extensively evaluated. OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to examine ethnicity-based differences in the time-to-treatment-seeking intervals of patients experiencing symptoms of acute coronary syndrome...

BACKGROUND: Atrial fibrillation is a prevalent cardiac arrhythmia. Effective communication of risks (e.g. stroke risk) and benefits of treatment (e.g. oral anticoagulants) is crucial for the process of shared decision making. AIM: The aim of this study was to explore factors associated with confidence in decision making and satisfaction with risk communication after a follow-up visit among patients who three months earlier had visited an emergency room for atrial fibrillation related symptoms...

BACKGROUND: For both patients and clinicians, differences between older and new anticoagulants have major implications for treatment selection, day-to-day management of therapy and adherence. AIMS: To explore patients' preferences for warfarin versus direct oral anticoagulant (DOAC) therapy. METHODS: Mixed-method study involving anticoagulated older patients admitted to hospital. Part A comprised a vignette-based questionnaire; patients were asked whether they preferred Medicine A (warfarin) or Medicine B (DOAC)...

BACKGROUND: Transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) is the treatment of choice for frail, older adults with severe symptomatic aortic stenosis. Although research about long-term clinical outcomes is emerging, there is limited evidence from the perspectives of patients and family caregivers on their perceived benefits and challenges after TAVI. AIMS: The aim of this study was to describe older adults and family caregivers' perspectives on undergoing TAVI at one year post-procedure...

BACKGROUND: Implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (ICD) therapy significantly improves the survival of patients who are at high risk for sudden cardiac death. However, it is unclear whether this survival is accompanied by impairment on quality of life (QoL). OBJECTIVES: This systematic review sought to describe whether ICD therapy, as compared with standard treatment, can have an impact on QoL outcomes. METHODS: Extensive literature searches were carried out in PubMed, EMBASE, LILACS and Cochrane Library...

AIM: The purpose of this study was to estimate the proportion of Norwegian coronary heart disease patients participating in cardiac rehabilitation programmes after percutaneous coronary intervention, and to determine predictors of cardiac rehabilitation participation. METHODS: Participants were patients enrolled in the Norwegian Coronary Stent Trial.

BACKGROUND: Delirium is a common temporary mental disorder that often occurs in patients who undergo cardiac surgery. It is important to prevent the negative side effects of delirium by identifying high-risk patients before surgery. Koster and colleagues designed a risk model to identify patients with an increased risk of postoperative delirium after cardiac surgery. AIM: The aim of this study was to validate the risk model for delirium and further improve the risk model...

INTRODUCTION: Acceptance of illness plays a key role, allowing the patient to adapt to the disease and its treatment, and to maintain their health-related quality of life (HRQOL) despite chronic conditions. AIM: The aim of the study was to assess the relationship between severity of arrhythmia symptoms, acceptance of illness and HRQOL in patients with atrial fibrillation. METHODS: The study included 99 patients (mean age 64.6) treated for atrial fibrillation...

Robin S Mickelson, Richard J Holden
BACKGROUND: Older adults with heart failure use strategies to cope with the constraining barriers impeding medication management. Strategies are behavioral adaptations that allow goal achievement despite these constraining conditions. When strategies do not exist, are ineffective or maladaptive, medication performance and health outcomes are at risk. While constraints to medication adherence are described in literature, strategies used by patients to manage medications are less well-described or understood...

BACKGROUND: Clinical course, co-morbidity and age often differs between patients undergoing aortic and mitral valve surgery and this might affect patient-reported outcomes. AIMS: The purpose of this study was to describe differences in patient-reported physical and mental health and health-related quality of life after aortic valve or mitral valve surgery, and to identify demographic and clinical characteristics associated with worse patient-reported physical and mental health, and health-related quality of life...

Stephanie A Hooker, Sarah J Schmiege, Ranak B Trivedi, Nicole R Amoyal, David B Bekelman
BACKGROUND: Heart failure is a progressive condition characterized by frequent hospitalizations for exacerbated symptoms. Informal family caregivers may help patients improve self-care, which may in turn reduce hospitalizations. However, little is known about how mutuality, defined as the quality of the patient-caregiver relationship, and caregiver burden affect self-care. OBJECTIVE: This study examines the associations among mutuality, patient self-care confidence (beliefs in abilities to engage in self-care behaviors) and maintenance (behaviors such as medication adherence, activity, and low salt intake), caregiver confidence in and maintenance of patient care, and caregiver perceived burden...

BACKGROUND: Caregivers are thought to play a major role in helping patients first appraise and then respond to heart failure (HF) symptoms. AIMS: The aims of this study were to: (a) characterise distinct patterns of HF patient-caregiver dyads with respect to symptom appraisal; and (b) link dyadic symptom appraisal to contributions to self-care and caregiver strain. METHODS AND RESULTS: A cross-sectional dyadic descriptive design was used to capture patient and caregiver appraisal of patient HF symptoms (i...

BACKGROUND: Takotsubo cardiomyopathy (TSCM) has detrimental effects on both physical and psychological health of sufferers. However, little is known whether TSCM also affects sexual functioning in female patients. AIM: The aim of this study was to investigate psychological distress (depression and anxiety), health-related quality of life, and sexual functioning in women with TSCM and compare them with women with acute myocardial infarction and with healthy controls...

BACKGROUND: Self-care is assumed to benefit health outcomes in patients with chronic heart failure (HF), but the evidence is conflicting for health-related quality of life (HRQOL). The aim of this study was to examine the association of (changes in) self-care with HRQOL while adjusting for psychological distress. METHODS: In total, 459 patients (mean age = 66.1 ± 10.5 years, 73% male) with chronic HF completed questionnaires at baseline and at 6, 12 and 18 months of follow-up...

BACKGROUND: Adherence to self-care recommendations is associated with improved patient outcomes and improved quality of life for people living with heart failure. The Home-Heart-Walk (HHW) is an intervention to promote physical activity adapting the elements of a six minute walk test, a reliable and valid measure. This adaptation was designed to support self-monitoring of physical functioning and promote the self-care of people with heart failure. The primary outcome of the Home-Heart-Walk was perceived physical functioning and the secondary outcomes were six-minute walk test distance, health related quality of life, self-care behaviour, self-efficacy and physical activity level...
