  1. 1. Living with an implantable cardioverter defibrillator : Swedish and US patients' experiences of their life situation

    Författare :Kärstin Bolse; Högskolan i Halmstad.; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [2004]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; CHD; ICD-implantation; MUIS; life situation; QLI; Quality of life; phenomenography; satisfaction; uncertainty; Implantable defibrillators; MEDICINE; MEDICIN; . ICD-implantation;

    Sammanfattning : The general aim of this study was to describe changes in uncertainty and satisfaction as well as to explore how patients with an ICD experience their life situation over a two year period. The design was explorative and descriptive, combining both quantitative and qualitative approaches. Data were collected from two locations, Sweden and the US. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Caring for patients with an Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator Experiences of patients and healthcare professionals

    Detta är en avhandling från Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Sammanfattning : Background: An Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator (ICD) is a technical device used in the treatment of ventricular arrhythmias. After the implantation of an ICD the entire life situation can be affected with psychological and social consequences for the patient and his/her next of kin. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Studies on malignant ventricular tachyarrhythmias and their treatment with an implantable defibrillator

    Detta är en avhandling från Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Implantable cardioverter defibrillator; ventricular fibrillation; ventricular tachycardia; predischarge test; defibrillation threshold; discrimination; electrogram morphology; aortic stenosis; hypertrophy; noradrenalin;

    Sammanfattning : Aims: To investigate the hemodynamic, metabolic and autonomic effects of ventricular fibrillation per se during maintained circulation. To study the defibrillation threshold (DFT) and efficacy of a new and thinner ICD lead (DSP) compared with the standard lead (C). LÄS MER

  5. 5. Living with life-saving technology Long-term follow up of recipients with implantable cardioverter defibrillator

    Detta är en avhandling från Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Författare :Inger Flemme; Anna Strömberg; Bengt Fridlund; Nils Edvardsson; Ulrika Hallberg; Lars-Olof Persson; [2009]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Anxiety; arrhythmia; defibrillators; depression; grounded theory; perceived control; qualitative; quality of life; uncertainty; MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    Sammanfattning : The evidence that treatment of life-threatening arrhythmia (LTA) with an Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator (ICD) can prolong life is convincing. Living with a lifelong heart disease will gradually influence the everyday life and encompasses some or all aspects of life. LÄS MER
