Abstract [en]

Background: Transient ischemic attack (TIA) is a is a risk factor for stroke. This occurs when the blood flow in one of the blood vessels of the brain is inhibited for a short time and then restored without any serious damage. In a year, more than 46,000 people around the world are affected for the first time. People who suffer from TIA experience feelings of depression, fatigue, reduced quality of life, difficulty returning to normal activities and work

Aim: The purpose of this study is to describe patients' experiences of suffering from TIA

Method: A literature study based on analysing eight qualitative articles.

Results: Two themes emerged inthe result; The significance of the symptom & everyday life after TIA, built on six subthemes.The results showed that the experience of a TIA symptom is unclear and varies in different durations. TIA has a negative impact on patients economic and social lives. The tendency to seek care has a strong connection with how the individual has previously experienced their health and the encouragement of relatives.

Conclusion: Nurses and other healthcare professionals need to work to create trust so that all patient with TIA seek care. This can be achieved through good care relations and individualized information sharing. 

Abstract [sv]

Transitorisk ischemisk attack (TIA) är en riskfaktor för stroke. På ett år drabbas mer än 46 000 människor runt om i världen för första gången. I Sverige drabbas ungefär 10 000 personer varje år. Människor som drabbats av TIA upplever känslor av depression, trötthet, nedsatt livskvalitet, svårigheter att återgå till normala aktiviteter och arbete. Studien är en kvalitativ litteraturstudie med syftet att beskriver patienters erfarenheter av att drabbas av TIA. Åtta vetenskapliga artiklar utgjorde grunden för studiens resultat. Efter analys av de vetenskapliga artiklarna framkom två teman och sex underteman. Temat Symptomens betydelse med underteman, Att tolka symptom, Benägen att söka vård och Mötet med vården. Temat Vardagslivet efter TIA med underteman, Ett påverkat liv, Kroppens påverkan och Att attityder varierar. De teman som framkom visade att upplevelsen av ett TIA-symptom är oklar och varierar i olika duration. TIA har en negativ inverkan på patienters ekonomiska och sociala liv och benägenheten att söka vård har en stark koppling till hur individen tidigare upplevt sin hälsa och uppmuntran från anhöriga.
