#1
Wilson Tam, Brigitte Woo, Toon Wei Lim
BACKGROUND: Atrial fibrillation (AF) is associated with high mortality and morbidity. Approximately half of patients with AF and at risk of stroke do not receive oral anticoagulation, despite its demonstrable reduction of stroke risk. Low adherence to anticoagulation medications may be a result of limited knowledge of AF among patients; hence, a validated instrument to assess AF knowledge is warranted. Cross-sectional surveys evaluating AF knowledge revealed the availability of instruments in the literature, but no systematic review has hitherto been conducted to characterize them...

BACKGROUND: Open-heart surgery in persons with cardiovascular disease is associated with high levels of anxiety. OBJECTIVE: The goal of this study was to determine the effect of digital storytelling on anxiety in patients who were candidates for open-heart surgery. METHODS: In this quasi-experimental study, 80 patients were randomly allocated into 2 groups. The intervention group received routine training and digital storytelling. In each group, anxiety was measured by the State-Trait Anxiety Inventory anxiety scale before surgery and 5 days after surgery...

BACKGROUND: In older adults hospitalized with heart failure (HF), cognitive impairment is associated with increased hospital readmission and mortality risk. There is no consensus on an objective, scalable method of cognitive screening in this population. OBJECTIVE: The aim of this project was to determine the feasibility, test-retest reliability, and convergent validity of the Processing Speed Test (PST), a test of information processing, attention, and working memory administered on an iPad in older adults hospitalized with HF...

BACKGROUND: Motivational interviewing, as a counseling approach, could promote not only behavioral changes but also individuals' psychological adaptation. Previous studies provide evidence that motivational interviewing focused on increasing physical activity decreases the risk of metabolic syndrome in women. Its effects on sedentary behaviors, depressive symptoms, and health-related quality of life (HRQL) remain unknown. OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study was to evaluate whether a 12-week motivational counseling program reduces sedentary behaviors and depressive symptoms and improves HRQL in Taiwanese women...

#5
Jennifer L Smith, Terry A Lennie, Misook L Chung, Gia Mudd-Martin
BACKGROUND: Low-sodium diet adherence is foundational to heart failure (HF) self-management. Altered salt taste perception caused by angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors commonly prescribed to patients with HF may increase sodium consumption. We hypothesized sodium intake, indicated by dietary sodium density, would be significantly higher among patients with HF prescribed ACE inhibitors compared with those not prescribed the drug. OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to assess the association between prescribed ACE inhibitors and dietary sodium density in patients with HF...

#6
Beverly Carlson, Helina Hoyt, Kristi Gillespie, Julie Kunath, Dawn Lewis, Lisa C Bratzke
BACKGROUND: High risk for readmission in patients with heart failure (HF) is associated with Hispanic ethnicity, multimorbidity, smaller hospitals, and hospitals serving low-socioeconomic or heavily Hispanic regions and those with limited cardiac services. Information for hospitals caring primarily for such high-risk patients is lacking. OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to identify factors associated with 30-day HF readmission after HF hospitalization in a rural, primarily Hispanic, low-socioeconomic, and underserved region...

Rikke Elmose Mols, Marianne Hald, Heidi S√łnderby Vistisen, Kirsten Lomborg, Michael Maeng
BACKGROUND: Same-day discharge of patients undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) may challenge preparation of patients for discharge. OBJECTIVE: The objective of this study was to investigate whether nurse-led telephone follow-up influenced patients' self-management post-PCI. METHODS: We performed a randomized study with an allocation rate of 1:1. A standardized nurse-led motivational telephone consultation was conducted between 2 and 5 days after PCI to support adherence to medical therapy, follow-up activities, emotional well-being, and healthy lifestyle...

BACKGROUND: Although cardiology organizations recommend early introduction of palliative care for patients with heart failure (HF), integration has remained challenging, particularly in patients with cardiac devices such as cardiac implantable electronic devices and left ventricular assist devices. Study authors suggest that patients often have limited and erroneous understanding of these devices and their implications for future care. OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to assess perceptions of cardiac devices in patients with HF and how these perceptions impacted advance care planning and future expectations...

BACKGROUND: Patient populations with low socioeconomic status (SES) experience psychological stress because of social determinants of health. Social determinants of health contribute to self-care-especially among patients with heart failure (HF). OBJECTIVE: We sought to describe the influence of stress and social determinants of health on self-care in patients with HF who have low SES. METHODS: In this mixed-methods, concurrent embedded study, participants (N = 35) were recruited from 2 urban hospitals in Chicago if they had low SES and were readmitted within 120 days of an exacerbation of HF...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to investigate the effectiveness of patients' intensive telephone-based care program (PITC) on depression and its correlation with overall survival in patients with coronary artery disease who have depression. METHODS: A total of 224 patients with coronary artery disease who were complicated with depression were allocated randomly to the PITC group and control group in a 1:1 ratio. In the PITC group, PITC and usual care were performed, whereas in the control group, only usual care was given...

BACKGROUND: This study explores the likelihood of reporting the presence of cardiovascular health conditions in the National Health Interview Survey, with a focus on the moderating effects of veteran status, race/ethnicity, age, sex, and functional status. METHOD: Data from the 2012-2015 National Health Interview Survey examine 5 cardiovascular health conditions/risk factors (hypertension, coronary heart disease, heart conditions, stroke, and heart attack). RESULTS: Age, sex, and functional status moderate the relationship between veteran status and cardiovascular conditions...
