    Hur patienter som drabbats av hjärtinfarkt skattar och upplever sin livskvalitet efter utskrivning från sjukhus: En litteraturstudie2016Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Bakgrund

    Att ha drabbats av en hjärtinfarkt kan vara väldigt omvälvande och innebär inte bara att patienter kan få fysiska skador på hjärtmuskulaturen utan även att den psykiska hälsan kan påverkas. Därför är det viktigt att studera hur patienter skattar och upplever att deras livskvalitet har påverkats efter att de drabbats av hjärtinfarkt.

    Syfte

    Syftet med denna litteraturstudie var att beskriva hur patienter som drabbats av hjärtinfarkt skattar och upplever sin livskvalitet efter utskrivning från sjukhus samt vilka datainsamlingsmetoder som använts i artiklarna.

    Metod

    Examensarbetet har gjorts i form av en deskriptiv litteraturstudie utifrån 12 stycken artiklar med kvalitativ och kvantitativ ansats. Artiklarna är hämtade från databaserna Medline och PsycINFO och har granskats av båda författarna.

    Huvudresultat

    Studien visar att livskvaliteten kan förändras hos patienter som drabbats av hjärtinfarkt, och att många kan ha svårt att acceptera och hantera den nya situationen. I föreliggande studie framkom att patienternas brist på energi ligger till grunden för andra problem hos majoriteten av patienterna. Data har samlats in med hjälp av enkäter samt genom semistrukturerade intervjuer.

    Slutsats

    Denna studie visar att patienter som drabbats av hjärtinfarkt behöver tydlig information om deras tillstånd och vad de har att förvänta sig efter hjärtinfarkten för att lättare kunna acceptera och hantera den omvälvande situationen. Informationen och rehabiliteringen bör vara anpassad utifrån varje enskild individ eftersom patienterna många gånger upplever olika typer av problem och då kan behöva olika strategier för att handskas med dessa.

    Style of Coping and its Determinants in Adults with Congenital Heart Disease in a Developing Country2014In: Congenital Heart Disease, ISSN 1747-079X, E-ISSN 1747-0803, Vol. 9, no 4, p. 349-360Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Objective The objective of this study is to compare coping strategies between adults with and without congenital heart disease and to scrutinize the associations between different available resources (e.g., social support) and adoption of certain coping strategies.

    DesignThe study has a cross-sectional case-control design.

    SettingThe study was conducted in two university-affilliated heart hospitals in Tehran, Iran.

    Patients The participants comprised 347 persons (18–64 years) with and 353 individuals without congenital heart disease, matched by gender and age.

    Outcome Measures Coping strategies, assessed with the Utrecht Coping List-short form, were compared between both groups. Block-wise multiple regression analyses were conducted to scrutinize the associations between different independent variables (e.g., demographic/socioeconomic statuses) and adoption of certain styles of coping (dependent variables) among all participants and separately for each group.

    Results The styles of coping in the patients were comparable with those of the control group. Multivariate analyses revealed that congenital heart disease per se was not associated with style of coping except for palliative reaction pattern. The active problem-solving coping style was associated with never married marital status, parenthood, unemployment, higher level of anxiety/somatic symptoms, lower level of depressive symptoms, and better social support. The avoidance behavior style was associated with having a low income, whereas the expression of emotion style was associated with higher anxiety symptoms, experience of financial strain, and income. None of the adopted coping strategies was related to the heart disease variables.

    Conclusions The adults with congenital heart disease coped as well as adults without congenital heart disease. Marital status, parenthood, annual income, financial strain, psychological adjustment, and perceived social support were important explanatory factors in adopting a certain style of coping among adults with congenital heart disease. However, longitudinal studies with repeated measures are warranted.

    Health status and psychological distress among in-hospital cardiac arrest survivors in relation to gender2017In: Resuscitation, ISSN 0300-9572, E-ISSN 1873-1570, Vol. 114, p. 27-33Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    AIM: To describe health status and psychological distress among in-hospital cardiac arrest (IHCA) survivors in relation to gender.

    METHODS: This national register study consists of data from follow-up registration of IHCA survivors 3-6 months post cardiac arrest (CA) in Sweden. A questionnaire was sent to the survivors, including measurements of health status (EQ-5D-5L) and psychological distress (HADS).

    RESULTS: Between 2013 and 2015, 594 IHCA survivors were included in the study. The median values for EQ-5D-5L index and EQ VAS among survivors were 0.78 (q1-q3=0.67-0.86) and 70 (q1-q3=50-80) respectively. The values were significantly lower (p<0.001) in women compared to men. In addition, women reported more problems than men in all dimensions of EQ-5D-5L, except self-care. A majority of the respondents reported no problems with anxiety (85.4%) and/or symptoms of depression (87.0%). Women reported significantly more problems with anxiety (p<0.001) and symptoms of depression (p<0.001) compared to men. Gender was significantly associated with poorer health status and more psychological distress. No interaction effects for gender and age were found.

    CONCLUSIONS: Although the majority of survivors reported acceptable health status and no psychological distress, a substantial proportion reported severe problems. Women reported worse health status and more psychological distress compared to men. Therefore, a higher proportion of women may be in need of support. Health care professionals should make efforts to identify health problems among survivors and offer individualised support when needed.

    Slower Skeletal Muscle Oxygenation Kinetics in Adults With Complex Congenital Heart Disease2019In: Canadian Journal of Cardiology, ISSN 0828-282X, E-ISSN 1916-7075Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Background: Adults with complex congenital heart disease (CHD) show reduced aerobic exercise capacity and impaired skeletal muscle function compared with healthy peers. Peripheral muscle factors are presumed to be important contributors to the aerobic capacity, but the mechanisms are poorly understood. The aim of the present study was to investigate differences between adults with CHD and controls in muscle oxygenation kinetics at rest, and during and after exercise.

    Methods: Seventy-four patients with complex CHD (mean age 35.6±14.3 years, female n=22) were recruited. Seventy-four age- and sex-matched subjects were recruited as controls. Muscle oxygenation was successfully determined on the anterior portion of the deltoid muscle using near-infrared spectroscopy in 65 patients and 71 controls. Measurements were made at rest, during isotonic shoulder flexions (0-90°) to exhaustion, and during recovery.

    Results: The patients with CHD performed fewer shoulder flexions (40±17 vs 69±40; P < 0.001), had lower muscle oxygen saturation (StO2) at rest (58±18% vs 69±18%; P < 0.001), slower desaturation rate at exercise onset (-9.7±5.9 vs -15.1±6.5% StO2 x 3.5 s-1, P <0.001), and slower resaturation rate post exercise (4.0±2.7 vs 5.4±3.6% StO2 x 3.5 s-1; P = 0.009) compared with the controls.

    Conclusions: Comparison with age- and sex-matched controls, adults with complex CHD had slower oxygenation kinetics. This altered skeletal muscle metabolism might contribute to the impaired skeletal muscle endurance capacity shown and thereby also to the reduced aerobic capacity in this population.
