Widened QRS-T Angle May Be a Measure of Poor Ventricular Stretch During Exercise Among On-duty Firefighters.
CONCLUSIONS: A negative correlation existed between QRS-T angle and maximal diastolic BP and postexercise diastolic BP. Lower maximum diastolic BP during and after exercise may be a sign of poor ventricular stretch. A widened spatial QRS-T angle may represent poor ventricular stretch.

Evaluating Perceptions of Self-efficacy and Quality of Life in Patients Having Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting and Their Family Caregivers.
CONCLUSIONS: Differences between patients' and caregivers' perceptions of patient self-efficacy for maintaining function should be addressed before surgery to reduce discordance. Patients' self-efficacy for maintaining function was associated with their own quality of life. There was no partner (relationship) effect of self-efficacy on quality of life. More research is needed in this area. PMID: 30489417 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher] (Source: The Journal of Cardiovascular Nursing)

Heart Failure Care Dyadic Typology: Initial Conceptualization, Advances in Thinking, and Future Directions of a Clinically Relevant Classification System.
CONCLUSIONS: Development and testing of the typology across 5 studies resulted in a well-characterized, pragmatic and parsimonious, person-oriented classification system for understanding how patients and informal caregivers conduct patients' HF self-care at home. The 4 types are characterized as 2 individually oriented types-type I, patient oriented; type II, caregiver oriented; and 2 relationally oriented types-type III, collaboratively oriented; and type IV, incongruently oriented. We have devised a single-item measure of typology group that can be assessed in the clinical setting. Once this information is ascertained, ...

Correlates of Endothelial Function in Older Adults With Untreated Obstructive Sleep Apnea and Cardiovascular Disease.
Abstract BACKGROUND: Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a highly prevalent and consequential sleep disorder in older adults. Untreated moderate to severe OSA substantially increases the risk for hypertension and cardiovascular disease (CVD), which can be attributed to the accelerated progression of atherosclerosis and endothelial dysfunction. OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to identify factors that can function as correlates of endothelial function in older adults with untreated, moderate to severe OSA and CVD or CVD risk factors. METHODS: A subsample (N = 126) of adults aged 65 years and older from t...

Individualized Family-Centered Developmental Care: An Essential Model to Address the Unique Needs of Infants With Congenital Heart Disease.
CONCLUSIONS: The experiences in the CICU shape the developing brain and alter recovery and healing, thus adversely impacting development. Individualized Family-centered Developmental Care is a promising model of care that nurses can integrate into the CICU to promote neuroprotection and development. Nurses can effectively integrate IFDC into the CICU by understanding the unique characteristics of infants with cCHD and applying IFDC interventions that include both maturity and recovery perspectives. CLINICAL IMPLICATIONS: The incorporation of IFDC interventions is essential for the infant with cCHD and should be a stan...

The Experiences of Younger Individuals Living With Heart Failure.
CONCLUSIONS: Younger individuals living with HF reported overwhelmingly poor health-related quality of life that was linked to the 6 themes identified previously. The effect of HF was seen on numerous life events that traditionally occur earlier in the life course such as establishing a career, meaningful relationships, family, and financial security. This directly impacted health-related quality of life by disrupting what each individual perceived as important to them, which took a toll on their overall mental health. To provide holistic care to younger patients living with HF, interventions that address the heavy burden ...

Experiences of Undergoing Enhanced External Counterpulsation in Patients With Refractory Angina Pectoris: A Qualitative Study.
CONCLUSIONS: Enhanced external counterpulsation was perceived as an unknown treatment option among these patients with RAP.

There is a great need to increase the awareness of EECP among healthcare professionals because it can improve the life situation for patients with RAP.

CONCLUSION: Vitamin C deficiency was associated with poorer HRQOL and shorter cardiac event-free survival in patients with HF. The findings suggest that encouraging patients with HF to consume a diet rich in fruits/vegetables to prevent vitamin C deficiency may lead to better health outcomes.

Public Reporting of Cardiac Outcomes for Patients With Acute Myocardial Infarction: A Systematic Review of the Evidence.
CONCLUSIONS: Although public reporting may have had intentions of improving care, there is strong evidence that this policy did not result in more timely PCIs or improved mortality of patients with AMI. In fact, public reporting resulted in unintended consequences of not providing care for the most vulnerable patients in fear of an adverse outcome.

Of Sound Heart and Mind: A Scoping Review of Risk and Protective Factors for Symptoms of Depression, Anxiety, and Posttraumatic Stress in People With Heart Disease.
CONCLUSIONS: As per our results, it is important for clinicians to attend to the mental health history, type D personality, and presence and quality of social support in patients with heart disease. More research into prevention and gender differences is necessary to hone the detection and treatment of these problems in people with heart disease. CLINICAL IMPLICATIONS: Attention to their mental health history, their ability to express and regulate affect, their age, and their gender will most likely assist in identifying symptoms of depression, anxiety, and posttraumatic stress in people with cardiac disease.

Do Depressive Symptoms Moderate the Effects of Exercise Self-efficacy on Physical Activity Among Patients With Coronary Heart Disease?
Abstract BACKGROUND: Exercise self-efficacy is an important predictor of physical activity. Patients with coronary heart disease are at risk of developing depressive symptoms that could further weaken their self-efficacy and interfere with their ability to engage in physical activity. OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to examine the relationship between depressive symptoms, exercise self-efficacy, and physical activity among patients with coronary heart disease and how the efficacy-activity relationship is affected by the patient's level of depression. METHODS: A survey was conducted on 149 participan...

Sleep Quality During and After Cardiothoracic Intensive Care and Psychological Health During Recovery.
Abstract BACKGROUND: Intensive care patients experience poor sleep quality. Psychological distress and diminished health-related quality of life (HRQOL) are also common among former intensive care unit (ICU) patients. Coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery is a frequent reason adults require treatment in ICU. The effect of on- versus off-pump surgery on sleep and recovery has not been reported. OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to assess sleep quality of CABG patients during and after ICU, psychological well-being, HRQOL during recovery, and whether on- versus off-pump surgery affects sleep and recove...
