The Life Experience of Young Women (Age 18-38) Who Live With Congenital Heart Disease

2016-09-21 20:23:22 | BioPortfolio

Summary

This research will focus on young women between the ages of 18-38 who underwent a heart operation and their life experiences. This research will focus on these life events and the paradigm of these women being raised as "heart sick," and consequently lacking self-esteem (Frigiola, Bull, & Wray, 2014; Hickey et al., 2012). Most qualitative studies focusing on the quality of life compare men and women, completely ignoring women's body image and the experience of womanhood (Hickey et al., 2012; Hövels-Gürich et al., 2007; Sarikouch, et al., 2013). This study aims to focus on women's stories about their life experiences and the influence of surgery(ies) on their daily life using an the qualitative phenomenological approach.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Occlusion of the outflow tract in either the LEFT VENTRICLE or the RIGHT VENTRICLE of the heart. This may result from CONGENITAL HEART DEFECTS, predisposing heart diseases, complications of surgery, or HEART NEOPLASMS.

Inflammation of the ENDOCARDIUM caused by BACTERIA that entered the bloodstream. The strains of bacteria vary with predisposing factors, such as CONGENITAL HEART DEFECTS; HEART VALVE DISEASES; HEART VALVE PROSTHESIS IMPLANTATION; or intravenous drug use.

Diseases existing at birth and often before birth, or that develop during the first month of life (INFANT, NEWBORN, DISEASES), regardless of causation. Of these diseases, those characterized by structural deformities are termed CONGENITAL ABNORMALITIES.

A congenital coronary vessel anomaly in which the left main CORONARY ARTERY originates from the PULMONARY ARTERY instead of from AORTA. The congenital heart defect typically results in coronary artery FISTULA; LEFT-SIDED HEART FAILURE and MITRAL VALVE INSUFFICIENCY during the first months of life.

Diseases characterized by pathological irregularities in the HEART CONDUCTION SYSTEM. They may be associated with other heart diseases and syndromes (e.g., BRUGADA SYNDROME; NEUROMUSCULAR DISEASE, HEART BLOCKS), isolated or may result from injuries. You can have a conduction disorder without having an arrhythmia, but some arrhythmias arise from conduction disorders. OMIM: 601144.
