Objective: To explore the effects of psychological intervention on depression, anxiety and quality of life in hospitalised patients with vascular surgery.
Methods: Ninety-two hospitalised patients admitted to our hospital for vascular surgery from April 2018 to February 2019 were divided into two groups according to different nursing methods during hospitalisation; each group included 46 cases. The control group received routine nursing intervention during the hospitalisation period, while the experimental group received increased psychological intervention. The SAS, SDS and SF-36 scores and nursing satisfaction were compared between the two groups.
Results: Before treatment, there was no significant difference in the scores of SAS, SDS and SF-36 between the two groups (P>0.05). After the nursing treatment, the SAS and SDS scores and complication rate of the experimental group were lower than those of the control group (P<0.05). The SF-36 score and nursing satisfaction were higher than the control group (P<0.05).
Conclusion: Psychological intervention during hospitalisation has a significant effect for vascular surgery patients. In particular, it can relieve the patients’ depression, anxiety and other negative emotions, reduce the occurrence of complications and improve their quality of life.
