    Abstract [en]

    Background: Heart failure is a common condition that causes symptoms like shortness of breath, fatigue and palpitations. Heart failure can be caused by several reasons which ischemic heart disease and hypertension are the most common. To specify the degree of heart failure, New York Heart Associaton Functional Classification (NYHA I-IV), is used. Suffering can occur during illness. Suffering of disease, suffering of life and suffering of care are three varieties of suffering. Self-care is an important factor in order to maintain health and wellbeing. Patients with heart failure usually have regular contact with medical services. Aim: To describe patients' experiences of living with heart failure. Method: A literature-based study that is based on 13 scientific articles. Results: Patients experienced physical and mental limitations in daily life. They had to change the way of life and their social role was diminished. Patients sometimes experienced care negatives, they described the lack of information and support. The future was experienced uncertain for the patients. Conclusion: Patients' social roles are reduced, daily activities become more difficult to implement and confidence is reduced. It is important to strengthen the patient's self-confidence. Nurses have a responsibility to reduce suffering and enhance patients' ability to engage in self-care.
