What is happening with my hands? : Prevalence of self-reported hand eczema and urticaria among working operating room nurses and surgeons in the Region of Östergötland (English)
Abstract [sv]

Introduktion: Grundläggande för operationssjukvård är att kunna använda sina händer för att utföra god specialistsjukvård och omvårdnad av patienten. Att drabbas av eksem på händer, handleder, underarmar eller urtikaria till följd av kontaktallergi kan medföra att händernas funktion påverkas. Syfte: Syftet med studien var att undersöka prevalensen av självrapporterade handeksem, urtikaria och möjliga riskfaktorer hos verksamma operationssjuksköterskor och kirurger samt identifiera statistiska samband hos respondenterna. Metod: Studien genomfördes med kvantitativ metod. Data samlades in via elektroniska enkäter. Sammanlagt samlades 150 enkäter in. För statistisk bearbetning och analys användes ett statistiskt dataprogram. Resultat: Förekomst av eksem på händer, handleder eller underarmar vid något tillfälle självrapporterades av 44% av respondenterna, varav 24% upplevt eksem de senaste två åren. Uppkomst av urtikaria på händer, handleder eller underarmar vid något tillfälle självrapporterades av 28,7% respondenter. En högre andel av de som självrapporterat eksem och urtikaria hade också åtminstone en övrig allergi. Konklusion: I studien framkom att nästan var femte personal på operationsavdelningar inom Region Östergötland hade haft handeksem någon gång under de senaste två åren. Denna siffra är i enighet med tidigare forskning, dock är bortfallet i denna undersökningsgrupp för stort för att kunna generalisera resultatet.

Abstract [en]

Introduction: To be able to use your hands to carry out perioperative care and nursing is fundamental. To suffer from eczema on your hands, wrists, forearms or urticaria as a consequence of contact allergy, can affect the function of the hands. Aim: The aim of the study was to research the prevalence of self-reported hand eczema, urticaria and risk factors among working operating room nurses and surgeons in the region of Östergötland and to identify statistical relations among the respondents. Method: The study was carried out with a quantitative method. Data was gathered through electronic questionnaires. A total of 150 questionnaires were collected. For statistical processing and analyse, a statistic computer program were used. Result: Prevalence of eczema on hands, wrists and forearms at any time were self-reported among 44% of the respondents, and 24% had experienced eczema during the last two years. Experience of urticaria on hands, wrists and forearms at any time were reported by 28,7% respondents. A greater amount of the respondents who self-reported eczema and urticarial also described at least one additional allergy. Conclusion: The study showed that almost every fifth personnel on the surgical ward in the region of Östergötland, had self-reported hand eczema at some time during the two last years. Former research has shown similar data, but the number of non-respondents were too high to be able to generalize the result of this study.
