Education Model for Cardiac Patients

2016-11-30 15:45:49 | BioPortfolio


The purpose of this study is to compare the effect of an educational model, which includes cardiac rehabilitation with emphasis on physical activity and telephone reinforcement, with the usual management of individuals undergoing to intervention coronary percutaneous, in relation to physical activity six months after discharge.


Randomized controlled trial (RCT) at a public teaching hospital, which has specialized care for CAD in Ribeirão Preto, state of São Paulo, Brazil. The intervention group will receive usual care and an educational programme and the control group will receive only usual care.

One of the researchers will perform the first interview (baseline). A researcher (who will not have contact with the patients) will generate the random allocation in Graphpad software, concealing it from the investigators in sequentially numbered, sealed, opaque envelopes. The same researcher who carried out the interview will open the envelope to allocate the participants to either intervention or control group.

The educational programme consists of four booklets entitled 1. Percutaneous Transluminal Coronary Angioplasty, 2. Going home after your coronary angioplasty, 3. How to take care of your heart and your health, and 4. How to practice physical activities. The educational programme includes the telephone follow-up that consists in three calls to motivate the participants and clarify doubts. The booklets will be offered to the participants by a researcher (who will not participate in the interviews) face to face, who will explain the content step by step.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Surgical therapy of ischemic coronary artery disease achieved by grafting a section of saphenous vein, internal mammary artery, or other substitute between the aorta and the obstructed coronary artery distal to the obstructive lesion.

Direct myocardial revascularization in which the internal mammary artery is anastomosed to the right coronary artery, circumflex artery, or anterior descending coronary artery. The internal mammary artery is the most frequent choice, especially for a single graft, for coronary artery bypass surgery.

A complication of INTERNAL MAMMARY-CORONARY ARTERY ANASTOMOSIS whereby an occlusion or stenosis of the proximal SUBCLAVIAN ARTERY causes a reversal of the blood flow away from the CORONARY CIRCULATION, through the grafted INTERNAL MAMMARY ARTERY (internal thoracic artery), and back to the distal subclavian distribution.

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.

Pathological processes of CORONARY ARTERIES that may derive from a congenital abnormality, atherosclerotic, or non-atherosclerotic cause.
