Abstract [en]

Background: Every year many people suffer from a myocardial infarction. Life after a myocardial infarction can mean changes that have an impact on different aspects of the quality of life of a person. Subjective experiences on quality of life lead to a deeper understanding of life after a myocardial infarction. It is important that the nurse proceeds from every individual's perspective and adapts the information, caring, and motivation during the rehabilitation to achieve a good quality of life.

Aim: The aim of this study was to illustrate a person´s experiences on the quality of life after myocardial infarction.

Method: A literature-based study based on a method to contribute to evidence-based care with basis in the analysis of qualitative research. A total of 10 articles were analyzed.

Results: The result ended up in following 5 themes; losing control, limitations in daily life, adapt life, a second chance, information and support.

Conclusion: Both positive and negative experiences of life after myocardial infarction had an impact on the quality of life of a patient. More information, support and understanding is needed from the nurse to satisfy the experienced problems in the daily life.
