Factors Associated With Frailty in Patients Undergoing Cardiac Surgery: A Longitudinal Study
CONCLUSIONS: Frailty was associated with patients' functional status, perioperative conditions and psychosocial factors. Preoperative assessments of frailty and appropriate interventions are needed to improve frailty in patients undergoing cardiac surgery.PMID:34145204 | DOI:10.1097/JCN.0000000000000787 (Source: The Journal of Cardiovascular Nursing)

Psychometric Testing of the Self-care of Hypertension Inventory Version 3.0
CONCLUSIONS: Initial testing suggests that the SC-HI v3.0 is a sound measure of the essential elements of self-care for adults with chronic hypertension. With the new self-care monitoring scale, the SC-HI v3.0 is a valid reflection of the theory on which it is based.PMID:34117186 | DOI:10.1097/JCN.0000000000000827 (Source: The Journal of Cardiovascular Nursing)

Race Moderates the Relationship Between Perceived Social Support and Self-care Confidence in Patients With Heart Failure
J Cardiovasc Nurs. 2021 Jun 4. doi: 10.1097/JCN.0000000000000822. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTBACKGROUND: African Americans are at the highest risk of developing heart failure (HF) compared with other races and are hospitalized at 7 to 8 times the rate of Whites. Poor overall self-care, low self-care confidence, and lower levels of perceived social support are factors related to increased risk for hospitalizations in HF. Yet, limited evidence is available regarding the factors that may differentially impact self-care confidence by race in patients with HF.OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to examine to what extent rac...

Facilitators and Challenges to Exergaming: Perspectives of Patients With Heart Failure
CONCLUSION: Exergaming can increase individuals' physical activity because of easy accessibility and the fun and motivating factors the games offer. Participants initially found exergaming enjoyable and challenging. However, engagement diminished over time because of boredom from playing the same games for a period of time. Participants' preferences and capacities, participants' past experiences, and social support must be considered to avoid boredom and frustrations. Future studies are warranted to determine adherence to exergaming among patients with heart failure and, ultimately, increased overall well-being and healthc...

Malnutrition, Family Support, and Possible Sarcopenia in Patients Undergoing Transcatheter Aortic Valve Implantation
CONCLUSIONS: The nutrition level was higher among participants without sarcopenia than those with possible sarcopenia. Approximately 90% of the participants indicated that they had high family support. Demographic factors and albumin levels could be used to evaluate risk of malnutrition. Patients without possible sarcopenia showed greater improvement in NYHA class.PMID:34016837 | DOI:10.1097/JCN.0000000000000819 (Source: The Journal of Cardiovascular Nursing)

Malnutrition, Family Support, and Possible Sarcopenia in Patients Undergoing Transcatheter Aortic Valve Implantation
CONCLUSIONS: The nutrition level was higher among participants without sarcopenia than those with possible sarcopenia. Approximately 90% of the participants indicated that they had high family support. Demographic factors and albumin levels could be used to evaluate risk of malnutrition. Patients without possible sarcopenia showed greater improvement in NYHA class.PMID:34016837 | DOI:10.1097/JCN.0000000000000819 (Source: The Journal of Cardiovascular Nursing)

Frailty as a Predictor of Postoperative Outcomes in Invasive Cardiac Surgery: A Systematic Review of Literature
CONCLUSION: Although some studies lacked power, the majority confirmed that frail patients are more likely to experience poor outcomes. Further research is needed to determine which frailty measure provides the best predictive validity and to identify interventions to mitigate the risks that major cardiac surgery poses to frail patients.PMID:34016838 | DOI:10.1097/JCN.0000000000000821 (Source: The Journal of Cardiovascular Nursing)
