Ambulance personnels experience of regular structured physical activity (English)
Abstract [sv]

Ambulanspersonal (ambulanssjuksköterskor, specialistsjuksköterskor och ambulanssjukvårdare) förväntas klara av både fysiska och psykiska påfrestningar och samtidigt utföra en patientsäker vård. Framförallt de fysiska påfrestningarna kan skapa muskuloskeletala besvär hos ambulanspersonalen. Muskuloskeletala besvär kan leda till arbetsrelaterade förslitningsskador i nacke, skuldror, ländrygg och knän. Syftet med studien var att beskriva ambulanspersonalens upplevelse av regelbunden strukturerad fysisk aktivitet. Studien utfördes med kvalitativ design och en induktiv ansats där sex manliga deltagare intervjuades. Den genomförda innehållsanalysen resulterade i tre tydliga kategorier; självupplevd hälsovinst, säkrare omhändertagande och skadeförebyggande. Samtliga deltagare uppgav att de fick bättre ork, bättre sömn, bättre och snabbare återhämtning, mindre muskuloskeletala besvär och en positiv indirekt påverkan på patientsäkerheten.

Abstract [en]

Ambulance personnel (specialist nurses and paramedics) are expected to self-manage the risk of both physical and mental strain while performing safe patient care. It is mainly physical strain that can lead to musculoskeletal disorders among ambulance personnel. These musculoskeletal disorders can result in work-related repetitive strain injuries in the neck, shoulders, lower back and knees. The aim of the study was to investigate how regular structured physical activity can positively impact ambulance personnel. The study was conducted with qualitative design and with an inductive approach where six male informants were interviewed. The conducted analysis process resulted in three distinct categories; self-perceived health benefits, safer caretaking and injury prevention. All respondents reported that they experienced improved stamina, sleep and faster recovery. Also, they experienced less musculoskeletal problems than prior to undertaking regular physical activity. Furthermore, the informants felt that regular physical activity as such, had an indirect influence on patient safety.
