Development and Evaluation of a Nursing Virtual Intervention Tailored for Pain After Cardiac Surgery

2014-07-24 14:06:55 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The purpose of this project is to develop and evaluate the effects of a computer-tailored intervention targeting pain barriers and catastrophizing in adults having cardiac surgery.

The hypotheses are that in the experimental group, in comparison to the control group, participants will show lower levels of pain, less pain interference in their activities, less attitudinal barriers, and less pain catastrophizing.

A pilot-RCT is privileged to assess the preliminary effects of the intervention on the following outcomes: pain intensity, analgesic consumption, pain interference, barriers and pain catastrophizing.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A short-acting hypnotic-sedative drug with anxiolytic and amnestic properties. It is used in dentistry, cardiac surgery, endoscopic procedures, as preanesthetic medication, and as an adjunct to local anesthesia. The short duration and cardiorespiratory stability makes it useful in poor-risk, elderly, and cardiac patients. It is water-soluble at pH less than 4 and lipid-soluble at physiological pH.

Surgery performed on the heart.

Solutions which, upon administration, will temporarily arrest cardiac activity. They are used in the performance of heart surgery.

A beta-2 agonist catecholamine that has cardiac stimulant action without evoking vasoconstriction or tachycardia. It is proposed as a cardiotonic after myocardial infarction or open heart surgery.

Visualization of the heart structure and cardiac blood flow for diagnostic evaluation or to guide cardiac procedures via techniques including ENDOSCOPY (cardiac endoscopy, sometimes refered to as cardioscopy), RADIONUCLIDE IMAGING; MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING; TOMOGRAPHY; or ULTRASONOGRAPHY.
