The purpose of this study was to examine symptom distress, activities of daily living (ADL), and related factors for patients after weaned ventilator. This was a cross-sectional descriptive study. Ninety-one patients were recruited from medical centers in northern Taiwan. Their data were collected in four different time points, in the discharge day, as well as post-discharge one week, one month and three months. Three instruments were applied in the study, including the Demographic Data Form, Symptom Distress Scale, Activities of Daily Living Scale, Self-Care Ability Scale. Our results showed that the symptom distress of patients in the discharge day, post-discharge one week, one month and three months were significantly different. In addition, patient`s conscious, language expression, dependence and body cannula were closely related to activities of daily living function with statistic significant difference. Our study results might assist clinicians to comprehensively understand the symptom distress, self-care ability, and related factors in patients after weaning ventilator. In addition, the study could improve self-care capability, decrease re-hospitalization rate, and save limited medical and social resources.
