Abstract:
Poster presented at AORN's 58th Annual Congress: By definition, congenital heart defects are cardiocirculatory anomalies both in structure and function. These malformations seem to rise from multifactorial interactions, encompassing genetic and environmental factors. Surgical techniques have been developed to maintain these children alive, evolving to correct cardiopathies which range from simple to complex congenital defects. Not only should the nursing staff enhance and perfect knowledge of technical and scientific aspects of care, but also engage in holistic care of the patient and family. This study proposes to describe the importance of nursing care provided to the family of a child who undergoes cardiac surgery. A literature review and a computerized search were conducted in the Scielo and LILACs electronic databases, and in scientific books of the Pe. Inocente Radrizzani library. This search centered Portuguese language publications from the past 10 years. It is clear that from the nursing perspectives, the child is the center of attention, not the family. This highlights the great importance for the nurse to approach the family members at the time of admission to the hospital. In doing so, the nurse makes them feel welcome and they can become familiar with the hospital routine and the procedures to be carried out on the child. Nursing care to the family members of children submitted to cardiac surgery is of extreme importance. During the hospital stay, the existence of "support groups," where nurse and family can have the opportunity to clarify doubts and minimize anxieties, is fundamental, and should be part of the day-to-day activities. These practices reduce anxiety, as the family obtains clarification about the child's situation.
