Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study was to examine patients’ experiences of daily living with a pacemaker. A total of 13 pacemaker patients (seven women) aged 22-82 (mean = 59.2) years were interviewed. The informants had had a pacemaker from 0.5 to 33 (mean 13.1) years. The grounded theory method was the basis for collection and analysis of the data. The results of the analysis of the semi-structured interviews showed that variations in ‘perceived social participation’ and ‘emotional state’, the two core categories, were related to four qualitatively different ways of experiencing daily living after pacemaker implantation.
