The first month of recovery following coronary artery bypass

surgery (CABG) is associated with adverse physical and

psychological functioning of patients and their spouses. To

date, nursing intervention studies aimed at enhancing recovery of

CABG patients and their spouses have focused on patient

compliance with risk modification behaviors, not on decreasing

patient and spouse distress and enhancing their functioning.

This paper reports the findings of the first phase of a study

designed to develop and test the effect of an information

intervention on CABG patient and spouse functional recovery

outcomes. In this preliminary descriptive study, descriptions of

patient and spouse CABG recovery experiences are being examined

for development of the information intervention, organized under

Johnson's (1983) self-regulation theory. A convenience sample of

twenty male CABG patients and their spouses were chosen from a

list of patients on a cardiac step-down unit of a large teaching

hospital. Patients and spouses were interviewed separately using

a structured interview guide in the hospital one day prior to

discharge, in their homes 1-2 days after discharge and by

telephone three weeks following surgery. The interview guide was

developed by this investigator using Johnson's recommendations

regarding the design of a preparatory information intervention

based on concrete, sensory information. Data analysis is

underway and is designed to provide a description of the

experiences of patients and spouses during recovery following

CABG. Content analysis of the open-ended questions will

examine the data for conceptual categories related to concerns,

physical sensations, and emotional feelings that may emerge.

Descriptive statistics will be used to describe feelings and

physical sensations of patients and spouses and actions they

found most useful to manage the recovery for each time point so

that a timeline can be determined.
