Women´s experiences of acute coronary syndrom (English)
Abstract [sv]

2030 förväntas hjärtkärlsjukdomar vara den ledande dödsorsaken i världen bland både kvinnor och män. Kvinnor tenderar att visa upp en större variation av symptom vid händelse av akuta koronara syndrom vilket riskerar att skapa förvirring och feltolkning. Genom en ökad kunskap kring kvinnor och deras upplevelse av akuta koronara syndrom ges möjlighet till bättre omhändertagande, omvårdnad och medicinska resultat för kvinnor. Syftet med studien var att belysa kvinnors upplevelser av akuta koronara syndrom. Litteraturstudien gjordes utifrån 11 vetenskapliga originalartiklar som var relevanta för det valda syftet. Utifrån analys av de utvalda artiklarna sammanställdes studiens resultat i två huvudkategorier Upplevelser av akuta koronara syndrom vid insjuknande och Upplevelser av akuta koronara syndrom efter insjuknande. Resultatet visar att kvinnors upplevelser av akuta koronara syndrom skiljer sig från den traditionella synen på hur akuta koronara syndrom presenteras, vilket leder till att kvinnor upplever svårigheter att tolka och agera på sina symptom. Resultatet visar också att många kvinnor som upplevt akuta koronara syndrom beskriver ett ökat behov av stöd under arbetet med återanpassning till vardagen, samt hur diagnosen bidrar till ett nytt perspektiv på livet, hälsa och välmående.

Abstract [en]

In 2030 cardiovascular diseases is expected to be the leading cause of death in the world amongst both men and women. Women tend to show a greater variation of symtoms in the event of acute coronary syndromes which risk creating confusion and misinterpretation. Through increased knowledge amongst women and acute coronary syndromes is given the opportunity for better care, nursing and medical results for women and their experience of acute coronary syndromes.

The aim of the study was to highlight women ́s experiences of acute coronary syndrome. The literature study was made from 11 scientific original articles about women ́s experiences with acute coronary syndromes. These were examined and compiled and gave the studies result that generated two main categories: Experiences of acute coronary syndromes during illness and Experiences of acute coronary syndromes after illness. The results shows that women’s experiences of acute coronary syndrome differ from the traditional view of how acute coronary syndrome presents, which leads to women experiencing difficulties in interpreting and acting on their symptoms. The results also show that many women who have experienced acute coronary syndrome describe an increased need for support during the work on re- adjusting to everyday life, as well as how the diagnosis helps for a new perspective on life, health and wellbeing.
