Title:
Recovery symptoms and physical functioning in Thai CABG patients
Abstract:
Recovery symptoms and physical functioning in Thai CABG patients
Conference Sponsor:Midwest Nursing Research Society
Conference Year:2001
Author:Utriyaprasit, Ketsarin
Based on the self-regulation theory of Jean Johnson (1997), the purpose of this cross-sectional descriptive correlational study was to evaluate recovery symptoms and their relationship to physical functioning in Thai CABG patients during 2 weeks after discharge. A convenience sample of 91 consecutive patients (63 men, 28 women), aged 41 - 85 years (M=63.0, SD=8.9) were interviewed at cardiac follow-up clinics in five hospitals in Thailand 2 weeks after discharge. The relationships of age, co-morbidity, the pre-surgical cardiac functional status and recovery symptoms were assessed. Most predominant recovery symptoms were chest and leg incision pain, neck and shoulder discomfort, sleeping difficulty, and tiredness. The frequency of recovery symptoms (measured by the symptom Inventory) was associated with physical functioning (measured by the Sickness Impact Profile scale) (r=.43, p < .001). Contrary to expectations, the frequency of recovery symptoms and physical functioning were not related to age and co-morbidity. The lack of associations of age and co-morbidity with recovery symptoms and physical functioning may be due to underreporting of recovery symptoms by Thai patients as compared to their American counterparts. Further studies should include head-to-head comparisons of American and Thai CABG patients' recovery symptoms and physical functioning to further distinguish possible cultural differences.
