Factors related to recovery in coronary artery bypass graft surgery patients

, : Factors related to recovery in coronary artery bypass graft surgery patients. Dimensions of Critical Care Nursing 19(6): 40-45

Many studies have examined the experiences of patients who have had coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery. Research has suggested a relationship between patients' feelings of powerlessness and their recovery rate. This study examined recovery indicators and the degree of powerlessness CABG patients experienced, and identified ways nurses can encourage patients to participate in their recovery and feel back in control.

Exercise limitation has been described in patients with adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS); however, whether the walking performance is impaired in these patients should be elucidated. Thus, we aimed to evaluate the physiologic responses to the...
