Abstract:
Poster presented at AORN's 58th Annual Congress: We report the experience in the postoperative period after total hip arthroplasty in a state referral hospital after performing total hip arthroplasty. The total knee replacement or hip prosthesis is the replacement of the hip joint of parts made of artificial materials (metal, ceramic, or plastic), called prosthesis. This reflection refers to the needs of nursing care to patients who underwent this surgery immediately postoperative. Care in the transfer and mobilization of patients with impaired physical mobility due to a major orthopedic surgery, considered to be extremely painful, and bulky pressure dressing on the hip and presence of drain in place, qualified for the assistance. The biggest risk in this type of procedure is the displacement of the prosthesis, which consists of two mutually independent components that can move; the motion usually termed dislocation observed in the presence of pain and a shortening or external rotation of the leg. In the immediate postoperative period, total dependence on nursing care and the patient is without voluntary movement due to the risk of dislocation. The whole deployment should be done collectively by the nursing team to avoid dislocation of the prosthesis, as well as during all other care and systematic evaluations of the patient. After the immediate postoperative period, the team begins gradually stimulating gait training, increasing the range of motion, and increasing muscle strength in the patient. Nursing has a key role in postoperative recovery by requiring scientific and technical knowledge beyond the painful physical and prevention of complications such as dislocation, thromboembolism, and pressure ulcers.
