Congenital heart disease is one of the most serious and most commonly
occurring chronic illnesses in children. Management of CHD is primarily
surgical. The mortality rates of children with CHD have gone down, and
heart surgery has become a "routine" procedure as a result of the
tremendous advances made in cardiovascular diagnostic and surgical
techniques. For parents, surgery on an organ as essential to life as the
heart is never routine. As additional stressor for parents of a CHD child
is the subsequent admission of the child to the Pediatric Intensive Care
Unit (PICU) after heart surgery. Therefore, this study was designed to
explore and describe the relationship between family and child demographic
characteristics, family stress, perceived social support, coping and
adjustment in families who have a child in the PICU after heart surgery.
This study is guided by McCubbin, Thompson & McCubbin Resiliency Model of
Family Stress, Adjustment, and Adaptation. A convenience sample of 120
families with a child undergoing heart surgery will be asked to fill out
the self-administered questionnaire packet 48 hours after the child's
admission to the PICU after heart surgery. The Family Inventory of Life
Events (FILE), the Parental Stressor Scale: Pediatric Intensive Care Unit
(PSS: PICU), Coping Health Inventory for Parents (CHIP), the Inventory of
Socially Supportive Behaviors (ISSB), and the Family Assessment Device
(FAD) will be utilized to measure family stress, coping, perceived social
support, and adjustment in families who have a child in the PICU after
heart surgery. Data analysis will consist of descriptive statistics,
correlation, and simple and multiple regression analysis. The results of
this study will provide a basis for nurses to develop interventions that
minimize stress and facilitate adjustment in families with a child
undergoing heart surgery. (Poster Presentation)
