Women's help-seeking behaviour during a first acute myocardial infarction.
Journal: Scandinavian journal of caring sciences
April/5/2017
Description

Studies indicate that the time from onset of symptoms to medical treatment has decreased in acute myocardial infarction (AMI). However, there are still variations indicating that women wait longer than men before making the decision to seek medical care. Multidimensional factors hindering and facilitating the decision have been identified in previous studies, though few have fully explored how social context affects women's expectations, interpretations and actions and so influences the decision-making process. The aim of this study was therefore to identify how women's experiences interacted and influenced the decision to seek medical care at their first AMI. Seventeen women, aged 38-75 years, were interviewed, at home or in the hospital, between June 2011 and May 2012. Grounded theory was used as a method, and data collection and analysis were carried out simultaneously. The results showed that before deciding to seek medical care, these women went through three defined but interrelated processes that together hindered their normal activities and made them act according to existential needs. The women's experiences of the progression of the disease, in terms of both symptoms and time, were very different, so they sought medical care at different times, sometimes life-threateningly late and sometimes before developing an AMI. Three mechanisms had to coincide if the women were to receive medical care. First, the women had to acknowledge their symptoms as something more than common bodily changes. Second, the healthcare system had to be accessible when the women made their decision to seek care. Third, the women must have come into contact with healthcare providers when the heart muscle had taken enough damage to measure.

[Clinical experience with acute mesenteric vascular occlusion (author's transl)].
Journal: MMW, Munchener medizinische Wochenschrift
February/27/1980
Description

Between 1964 and 1978 twenty patients suffering from acute mesenteric vascular occlusion were treated in the surgical department (University of Münster). The average duration of the anamnesis until their hospitalization was 3.1 days and the actual operation was performed 11.35 hours later on the average. In only 15% of the cases had a correct preoperative diagnosis been given. As regards the frequency of causation, 60% of the mesenteric vascular occlusions were caused by a mesenteric arterioembolism, 20% by a mesenteric venous embolism, 10% by a mesenteric arterial thrombosis and 10% by a non-obstructive occlusion. In a post cardiac infarction condition was the predisposing factor in 50% of all cases, valvular defect in 33.5% and tachyarrhythmia in 16.6%. The causes found for the mesenteric venous tbrombosis were insufficiency of the right heart, absolute bradyarrhythmia, recurrent venous thrombosis of the leg, and myeloproliferative syndromes.
