Heart failure in the final stages of life (English)
Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: Hjärtsvikt är en kronisk sjukdom som ökar med stigande ålder över hela världen. Personer med hjärtsvikt har en hög symtombörda och det leder till begränsningar såväl psykiskt som fysiskt och socialt.

Syfte: Att beskriva upplevelser i livets slutskede hos personer som lever med svår hjärtsvikt.

Metod: Litteraturöversikt baserad på 13 kvalitativa vetenskapliga artiklar som analyserades enligt Fribergs modell.

Resultat: Analysen resulterade i fem kategorier; Begränsningar i det dagliga livet, En förändrad identitet, Att uppleva trygghet, Att leva mellan hopp och förtvivlan och att planera för livets slut.

Slutsats: Personer som lever med hjärtsvikt i livets slutskede upplever att de blir påverkade fysiskt, psykiskt, socialt och existentiellt i det dagliga livet. Personerna upplever en förlust av identitet. Att känna trygghet och kontinuitet upplevdes som viktiga komponenter för att hantera sjukdomens oförutsägbara natur.
