Objective: Cardiac surgery due to its-associated stressors has the potential physiological, psychological, emotional, and spiritual consequences. Assessment of stressors needs to nurses and patients understanding these factors that are different from each other. The aim of this study was to determine nurse-patient perception of stressful factors in patients undergoing coronary artery bypass surgery (CABG).
Materials and Methods: It was a descriptive comparative study on patients who underwent CABG and were hospitalized at cardiac surgery wards between the third and fifth days after operation and also on nursing caregivers of these patients working in these wards. The Revised Cardiac Surgery Stressor Scale (RCSSS) was used for assessing related stressors after determining its reliability and validity. The data analysis was performed by SPSS and with descriptive statistical methods (frequency, percent, mean ± standard deviation) and inferential statistical analysis was performed.
Results: According to overall mean RCSSS score, the perception of stressors in nurses was significantly higher than patients (2.38 ± 0.56 versus 1.65 ± 0.44) and the nurse-patient understanding was different for interpersonal, intrapersonal, and extra-personal stressors.
Conclusion: According to the results, nurses can generally assess their patients in terms of interpersonal, intrapersonal, and extra-personal stressors and train them according to the needs of patients. It can help them to personal assessment of the patients and facilitate their adaptation.
