When the heart is damaged : A qualitative literature-based study describing patients experience of living with heart failure (English)
Abstract [en]

Background: Heart failure is a chronic disease that increases among the population, despite progress in research. Living with heart failure can cause suffering and impaired health due to physical limitations in daily life. Research indicates that patients experience of living with heart failure is paid too little attention in relation to the medical treatment itself.

Aim: The aim of this study was to describe patients' experiences of living with heart failure.

Method: This study is based on a method to contribute to evidence-based nursing with ground in analysis of qualitative research. Eleven qualitative articles were analyzed using Fribergsfive step model.

Results: Through the analysis three main themes and eight sub-themes were developed. The main themes were: The daily life changes, To be involved in your own care and Listen to your heart.

Conclusion: To be diagnosed with heart failure means a life change. Therefore, it is important that the nurse is aware of the physical, and psychological effects of the disease.
