Abstract:
Poster presented at AORN's 58th Annual Congress: Purpose: The purpose of this poster abstract is to demonstrate the diverse and important role perioperative nurses have on patients with hyperandrogen syndrome. Description: The role of the perioperative nurse would include evaluating the patient's understanding of the disease and surgical procedure. Patient education explains the surgical experience from preoperative through postoperative care. Management treatment may include managing the physical changes with cosmetic and hormonal therapy. Often, ovarian surgery is required for polycystic disease, which may be emotionally distressing for a woman of child bearing age. Outcomes and Prognosis: The perioperative nurses role is beneficial in providing successful outcomes through patient education. This would include teaching lifestyle modification, such as diet and exercise, and monitoring outcomes, which would include weight control, blood pressure screening, and blood glucose levels. Possible Complications: The education about possible complications, such as obesity, hypertension, diabetes, and cancer are another important area for perioperative nurses to cover. Nursing Implications: Hyperandrogenism is most common in woman of child bearing age, affecting 5% to 10% of woman in this age group. The perioperative nurse is instrumental in providing psychological support, which may be helpful due to the many physical changes associated with the disease process. The perioperative nurse's role may greatly impact the patient's emotional wellbeing, improving their long term management of the disease.
