Men's experiences of suffering a myocardial infarction : study of autobiographies (English)
Abstract [sv]

 

För många personer som drabbas av hjärtinfarkt är det en traumatisk upplevelse och det kan också förekomma problem i dagliga livet lång tid efter infarkten. Syftet med studien var att analysera och beskriva upplevelser av att drabbas av hjärtinfarkt utifrån levd erfarenhet. Datamaterialet har utgjorts av självbiografier och analyserats med hjälp av kvalitativ innehållsanalysmetod. Samtliga självbiografier var skrivna av män. Resultatet utgörs av fyra huvudkategorier; Insjuknandet, Vårdrelationen, Behov och Bemästring. Informanterna hade inte kontroll över sin situation vid det akuta omhändertagandet och de kände sig utlämnade till sjukvårdspersonalen. Upplevelserna var också positiva, så som att kunna lämna över ansvaret för sin hälsa till vårdpersonalen och känna välbehag, trots sin utsatta situation. Det fanns behov av att dela erfarenhet med personer som drabbats av hjärtinfarkt och också behov av professionell närhet och distanserad närhet och de hanterade sin situation genom att se framåt, att anpassa sig och ta ett steg i taget.

 

Abstract [en]

Being suffered by myocardial infarction is for many people a traumatic experience and problems can also occur in the daily life, for a long time after the infarction. The aim of the study was to analyse and describe experiences when suffering a myocardial infarction, by lived experience. Autobiographies were used to collect data. Data were analysed using qualitative content analysis. All of the autobiographies were written by men. The result is represented by four main categories; Become ill, The caring relation, Needs and Coping. In the acute care the informants’ did not have control of their situation and they had a feeling of being deserted to the caring staff. The experience could also be positive, like the possibility to be able to leave the responsibility for their health to the caring staff. There was a need of sharing experiences with fellow patients and there was also a need for professional nearness and distanced nearness and they coped with the situation by looking forward, to adjust oneself and to take one step at the time.
