Awake conduction anaesthetic patients’ experiences (English)
Abstract [sv]

Patients who undergo surgery receive general anaesthesia or any form of conduction anaesthesia during the operation. For most people it is strange, unexpected and for many something completely new to be a patient and undergo surgery. Awake conduction anaesthetic patients’ experiences from the intraoperative period were little studied. The purpose of this study was to examine awake conduction anaesthesia patients’ experiences. An empirical study with nine patients that had surgery was carried out in southern Sweden. The interviews were analysed with content analysis. The results are presented in the tree categories that emerged from the analysis of these interviews and they were: sense of security is influenced by nursing staff, experiences of self during surgery and experiences of time and waiting. The overall theme that emerged in the analysis was a desire for closeness in the relationship and understanding of the unknown. The conclusion is that awake conduction anaesthetic patients wants: To fell safe and that they would be well cared for by the nursing staff, prefer to listen to music intraoperative, would like to be offered the possibility to see their operations, to get information about what happens during the operation, would like more information on how local anaesthetics acts and feels, experience that things take time intraoperative and wants to have influence on their situation intraoperative.
