Abstract [sv]

Syfte: Syftet var att utifrån litteratur beskriva livskvaliteten hos patienter som genomgått en gastric bypass-operation samt att granska kvaliteten på urvalsmetoden i de ingående artiklarna. Bakgrund: Övervikt och fetma har ökat markant världen över vilket är ett stort hälsoproblem. Fetma medför en rad hälsorisker och kan påverka livskvaliteten negativt. Gastric bypass är en operation som genomförs för att uppnå viktminskning samt förbättra livskvalitet hos denna patientgrupp. Metod: Litteraturstudien hade en deskriptiv design. Vetenskapliga artiklar söktes i PubMed och 13 inkluderades i studien, dessa artiklar bearbetades och sammanfattades. Huvudresultat: Det har visat sig att livskvaliteten efter en gastric bypass operation förändras. Den fysiska dimensionen av begreppet ökar markant medans den mentala dimensionen har en knapp ökning och tenderar att återgå till den preoperativa utgångspunkten vid ett- och tvåårsuppföljningar. Slutsats: Livskvaliteten efter en gastric bypass ökar men inom begreppet finner författarna markanta skillnader mellan den fysiska och mentala komponenten. Alla individer har individuella behov och det åligger sjuksköterskan att identifiera och tillgodose dessa för att individens ska kunna uppnå en högre livskvalitet även i den mentala komponenten.

Abstract [en]

The aim: The aim of this study was to describe quality of life in patients who had undergone a gastric bypass surgery and examine the quality of the included articles sample. Objective: Overweight and obesity has increased radically worldwide and is a large health problem. Obesity comes with a number of health risks and might have a negative impact on quality of life. Obese patients undergo gastric bypass surgery to achieve weight loss and improve their quality of life. Methods: This study had a descriptive design. Scientific articles were found by searching in PubMed. Thirteen articles where included in the study, these where processed and summarized. Findings: After a gastric bypass surgery it has been discovered that quality of life changes. The physical dimension of the concept increases markedly while the mental dimension has a slight increase and tends to return to the preoperative starting point for one-and two-year follow-ups. Conclusion: Quality of life after gastric bypass increases but within the concept the authors find significant differences between the physical and mental component. Every individual has individual needs, and it is up to the nurse to identify and meet these to achieve a higher quality of life in the mental component.
