BACKGROUND: Fatigue and depression based on self-report and diagnosis are prevalent in patients with heart failure and adversely affect high rates of hospitalization and emergency department visits, which can impact use of medical services. The relationships of fatigue and depression to use of medical services in patients with preserved and reduced left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) may differ. PURPOSE: We examined the associations of diagnoses of fatigue and depression with use of medical services in patients with preserved and reduced LVEF, controlling for covariates...

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...

BACKGROUND: Clinical response to left ventricular assist devices (LVADs), as measured by health-related quality of life, varies among patients after implantation; however, it is unknown which pathophysiological mechanisms underlie differences in clinical response by health-related quality of life. OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to compare changes in sympathetic markers (β-adrenergic receptor kinase-1 [βARK1], norepinephrine [NE], and 3,4-dihydroxyphenylglycol [DHPG]) between health-related quality of life clinical responders and nonresponders from pre- to post-LVAD implantation...

BACKGROUND: Living arrangements, social support, and self-efficacy have significant implications for self-management science. Despite the theoretical linkages among the 3 concepts, there is limited empirical evidence about their interplay and the subsequent influence on heart failure (HF) self-management. OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to validate components of the Individual and Family Self-management Theory among individuals with HF. METHODS: This is a secondary analysis of cross-sectional data generated from a sample of 370 individuals with HF...

BACKGROUND: A majority of patients with heart failure (HF) experience HF symptoms. Some literature suggests sex differences in the status of and also factors associated with HF symptoms. However, information on common HF symptom status and factors associated with HF symptoms in male and female patients is scarce. OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study was to examine HF symptom status and factors associated with HF symptoms in male and female patients with HF. METHODS: Descriptive data on HF symptoms, psychological factors (depressive symptoms and perceived control), sociodemographic factors (age and sex), clinical factors (body mass index, comorbidities, medication, and left ventricular ejection fraction), and a behavioral factor (self-care) were collected in 70 male and 49 female patients with HF...

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...

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...

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: 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...

BACKGROUND: Cardiovascular medications have well-established benefits in the primary and secondary prevention of cardiovascular diseases. Unfortunately, adherence to these medicines is often suboptimal. To develop interventions intended to enhance adherence to cardiovascular medications, more insight is needed into the complex character of medication nonadherence. OBJECTIVE: The aim of the present study was to identify which factors are associated with nonadherence to cardiovascular medications in a sample of patients from Dutch community pharmacies...

BACKGROUND: Self-care is indispensable for health maintenance and well-being. This naturalistic decision-making process involves behavioral choices to maintain physiological stability (self-care maintenance) and response to occurring symptoms (self-care management). However, several factors affect self-care, but some have contradictory results. OBJECTIVE: We aimed to examine how depressive symptoms, social support, eHealth literacy, and heart failure (HF) knowledge directly and indirectly affect self-care maintenance and management and to identify the mediating role of self-care confidence in self-care maintenance and management...
