Abstract [en]

The aim of the study was to describe how women and men with diagnosed heart disease experience their health-related quality of life and what differences there is between genders in their quality of life and also describe problems after receiving the diagnosis. The study also aimed to describe rehabilitation of patients with heart disease. The study was a descriptive literature study based on scientific articles. It emerged that both women and men with heart disease experienced lower quality of life compared to normative data. There was a significant difference between women and men both one year and three years after receiving the diagnosis heart disease, which showed that women experienced lower quality of life than men. The most common psychological reaction to heart disease was anxiety. Women were more anxious than men. Women were also, generally, more depressed than men after diagnosis. To suffer from heart disease resulted in great changes in lifestyle. How the patient was affected seems to depend on the social roll of the patient prior the heart disease and how the disease affected it.

Abstract [sv]

Syftet med studien var att beskriva hur kvinnor och män med diagnostiserad hjärtsjukdom upplever sin hälsorelaterade livskvalitet och vad som skiljer i livskvaliteten mellan könen samt att beskriva efterföljande problem. Studien syftade också till att beskriva rehabilitering av patienter med hjärtsjukdom. Studien gjordes som en deskriptiv litteraturstudie baserad på vetenskapliga artiklar. I studien framkom att både män och kvinnor med hjärtsjukdom upplever lägre livskvalitet än normativ data. Det fanns en signifikant skillnad mellan män och kvinnor både 1 och 3 år efter hjärtsjukdom, som visade att kvinnor upplever lägre livskvalitet än män. Den vanligaste psykologiska reaktionen till hjärtsjukdom var oro. Kvinnor upplevde oro i större utsträckning än män. Kvinnor var även generellt mer deprimerade än män efter hjärtsjukdom. Att drabbas av hjärtsjukdom medförde stora livsstilsförändringar och hur patienten påverkades tycktes bero på den samhällsroll som patienten tidigare haft och hur mycket den förändrats.
