    BACKGROUND: Patients experiencing an acute myocardial infarction are known to delay seeking treatment between 2 and 4 hours. This delay is problematic because individuals who receive treatment 2 or more hours after the onset of symptoms are less likely to benefit from emergent reperfusion techniques. Persons most likely to delay seeking treatment for an acute myocardial infarction and their reasons have not been clearly identified.

    OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to identify the ...

    Evidence has begun to accumulate that suggests there may be gender differences in the presenting symptoms of acute coronary syndromes (ACS). Identification of gender differences has implications for both health care providers and the general public. Women should be instructed as to the symptoms expected with ACS on the basis of evidence obtained from studies that include both sexes. Twelve studies that identified symptoms of ACS for both women and men were identified through a review of ...

    BACKGROUND: Information is limited concerning how affected individuals respond to early warning signs before their acute coronary event and how the presence of prodromal symptoms impacts prehospital delay.

    OBJECTIVES: This study's aim was to identify the characteristics and interpretation of prodromal symptoms in patients with a first-time acute myocardial infarction (AMI) and to determine whether the presence of prodromal symptoms was predictive of prehospital delay.

    OBJECTIVES: The purpose of this exploratory study was to examine the knowledge of stroke symptoms and risk factors in patients who have had a stroke and examine factors contributing to longer patient delay times during stroke.

    METHODS: Patients who had experienced an ischemic stroke and were able to understand and respond to questions were eligible to participate. A structured interview was used to identify patients' knowledge about symptoms and causes of stroke and the sequence of ...

    BACKGROUND: Early recognition of acute myocardial infarction (AMI) symptoms and reduced time to treatment may reduce morbidity and mortality. People having AMI experience a constellation of symptoms, but the common constellations or clusters of symptoms have yet to be identified.

    OBJECTIVES: To identify clusters of symptoms that represent AMI.

    METHODS: This was a secondary data analysis of nine descriptive, cross-sectional studies that included data from 1,073 people having AMI in the ...

    This study was an examination of perceptions about the causes of coronary artery disease and the timeline of the disease among 105 patients hospitalized because of myocardial infarction or for coronary angiography and receiving the diagnosis of coronary artery disease. Although 79% of subjects named at least one of three modifiable risk factors (smoking, hypertension, elevated cholesterol), only 7% identified all three. Subjects known to have risk factors varied in their recognition of ...

    BACKGROUND AND RESEARCH OBJECTIVE: Fatigue is one of the most prevalent symptoms in persons with systolic heart failure (HF). There remains insufficient information about the physiological and psychosocial underpinnings of fatigue in HF. The specific aims of this study were to (1) determine the psychometric properties of 2 fatigue questionnaires in patients with HF, (2) compare fatigue in patients with HF to published scores of healthy adults and patients with cancer undergoing ...

    PurposeThis study assessed the knowledge of heart attack symptoms and risk factors in a convenience sample of Korean immigrants.MethodA total of 116 Korean immigrants in a Midwestern metropolitan area were recruited through Korean churches and markets. Knowledge was assessed using both open-ended questions and a structured questionnaire. Latent class cluster analysis and Chi-square tests were used to analyze the data.ResultsAbout 76% of the sample had at least one self-reported risk ...

    BACKGROUND: Although individual symptoms and symptom trajectories for various cardiovascular conditions have been reported, there is limited research identifying the symptom clusters that may provide a better understanding of patients' experiences with heart disease.

    AIMS: To summarize the state of the science in symptom cluster research for patients with acute coronary syndrome, myocardial infarction, coronary artery bypass surgery, and heart failure through systematic review and to ...

    Individuals both within and outside the nursing profession have called for more diversity in nursing, from the education arena to the workforce. Implementing initiatives that address diversity and determining their effects have been limited. The University of Illinois at Chicago College of Nursing used the American Association of Medical Colleges Holistic Review Project as a platform to implement a process and paradigm shift for admissions to its nursing programs. We believe that the use ...

    BACKGROUND: Research has shown that there are differences between women and men in the epidemiology, presentation, and outcomes of coronary heart disease.

    OBJECTIVES: The purpose of this study was to determine if there were sex differences in the symptoms of unstable angina (UA) and if so, to determine if these differences remained after controlling for age, diabetes, anxiety, depression, and functional status.

    METHOD: This descriptive study used a nonexperimental, quantitative design. A ...

    BACKGROUND: Traditional nursing admission processes may pose barriers to enhancing the diversity of the nursing workforce. Holistic admission moves beyond academic metrics to include applicants' experiences, attributes, and abilities.

    METHOD: Demographic and academic information was examined for students admitted to a Bachelor of Science in Nursing program before and after holistic admission implementation, and a survey was completed by students admitted in 2014 through holistic ...

    BACKGROUND: Individuals need to recognize acute myocardial infarction symptoms in order to seek treatment promptly. Previous acute myocardial infarction symptom studies asked subjects to identify single symptoms from a list. However, people think about illnesses or respond to symptoms by considering groups or clusters of symptoms.

    OBJECTIVE: To use Q methodology to identify the cluster of symptoms that individuals at high risk for acute myocardial infarction and their significant others ...

    Documentation of symptoms in the medical record provides clinicians and researchers with valuable information about the patient's experience during acute myocardial infarction (AMI). To examine the consistency between the patient's reported symptoms and the medical record, 215 patients were interviewed and their medical records examined for information about their admission symptoms. Chest pain was the most frequently reported and recorded symptom, and there was good agreement between ...

    A secondary analysis was conducted from data gathered from 239 patients with acute myocardial infarction presenting to the emergency departments of three hospitals to explore the influence of age on delay time, experienced symptoms, and factors predicting a delay of >1 hour. During hospitalization, a structured interview about the patients' experience before hospital admission was completed and their medical records were reviewed. The median delay before seeking treatment was not ...
