Abstract [sv]

Patienter med förmaksflimmer är en grupp vars symtom ofta underskattas. Symtomen påminner om de som uppkommer vid en hjärtinfarkt med bröstsmärta, hjärtklappning, andnöd och trötthet. Syftet med studien var att belysa hur det kan vara att leva med förmaksflimmer. En litteraturstudie utfördes där vetenskapliga artiklar analyserades och sammanställdes. Resultatet visade att patienternas livskvalitet var kraftigt nedsatt och även anhöriga påverkades. En ökning av ångest och depression sågs vid uppföljning sex och tolv månader efter fastställd diagnos. Informationen och omvårdnaden var bristfällig och ett kunskapsbehov identifierades. Evidensbaserade riktlinjer för omvårdnad och information har utarbetats för denna patientgrupp, men resultatet visade att det inte fanns några utarbetade vårdprogram att tillgå i Sverige. Baskunskaper i omvårdnaden saknades hos personalen som vårdade patienterna. Här ses ett stort behov av omvårdnadsforskning inom området. Ett ökat samarbete mellan forskare och kliniskt verksamma sjuksköterskor behövs för att nya rön ska kunna implementeras i den dagliga vården.

Abstract [en]

Patients with atrial fibrillation is a group whose symptoms are often underestimated. Symptoms are similar to those arising from a heart attack with chest pain, palpitations, shortness of breath and fatigue. The purpose of this study was to illustrate how it can be to live with atrial fibrillation. A literature review was conducted in which scientific articles were analyzed and summarized. The results showed that patients' quality of life was dramatically reduced and even relatives were affected. An increase in anxiety and depression were seen at follow-up six and twelve months after the established diagnosis. The information and care was poor and the knowledge needs were identified. Evidence-based guidelines for care and information has been prepared for this group of patients, but the result showed that there were no prepared programs of care available in Sweden. Basic knowledge of nursing was missing the nursing staff who cared for the patients. Seen here is a great need for nursing research in the field. Increased cooperation between academics and clinical nurses is needed so that new findings could be implemented in the daily care.
