Abstract [sv]

Sjuksköterskor möter patienter varje dag med behov av lindring av symtom relaterat till olika sjukdomstillstånd. Bakgrund: Akupressur kommer från komplementär medicin och är en behandlingsform för att hjälpa patienter att lindra symtom relaterat till sjukdom. Syfte: Syftet med studien var att belysa behandlingsresultat av akupressur inom omvårdnad. Metod: Studien är gjord som en litteraturstudie med systematiska sökningar av relevant forskning inom området. Tolv kvantitativa vetenskapliga artiklar granskades och analyserades och valdes ut till resultatet. Resultat: Två kategorier identifierades: Påverkade psykologiska aspekter, Påverkade fysiologiska aspekter. Akupressurbehandling visar sig ha en symtomlindrande effekt av smärtlindring, återhämtning efter stroke och förbättrad sömnkvalitet hos äldre dementa patienter. Mer forskning behövs för att få ytterligare evidens vad gäller användning av akupressur i omvårdnaden. Genom ökad kunskap och utbildning om akupressur kan sjuksköterskor lindra lidande och minska symtom relaterat till olika sjukdomstillstånd.

Abstract

Nurses meet patients every day with the need to relieve symptoms linked with various disease states. Background: Acupressure comes from complementary medicine and is a treatment form for helping patients relieve symptoms related to disease. Purpose: The purpose of the study was to highlight treatment results of acupressure in nursing. Method: The study is done as a literature study with systematic searches of relevant research in the field. Twelve quantitative scientific articles were examined and analyzed and selected for the outcome. Results: Two categories were identified: Affected psychological aspects, Affected physiological aspects. Acupressure treatment appears to have a symptomatic effect, such as pain relief, post-stroke recovery and improved sleep quality in elderly dementia patients. More research is needed to get further evidence and education regarding the use of acupressure in nursing care. By gaining knowledge about acupressure, nurses can alleviate suffering and reduce symptoms related to various disease states.
