    Det dolda lidandet: – en litteraturstudie om kvinnors erfarenheter av att leva med endometrios.2015Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Background: Endometriosis is a chronic gynecological disease that affects 5-10% of all women of reproductive age. There is ignorance in public and in health care concerning this disease.

    Aim: The aim of this study was to describe women’s experiences of living with endometriosis.

    Method: Nine qualitative studies were selected through the databases CINAHL, PubMed and EBSCO. The results have been quality reviewed, analyzed and compiled.

    Results: The literature review showed that living with endometriosis meant negative impact on women's physical, mental and emotional health. Three main categories of "Coping with everyday life ", "Meeting the health service " and " Worry about the future," summarized the various aspects of women's experiences. Social life and relationships were affected by the disease as a result of a lot of pain. The health care didn’t take the illness seriously, which meant that the women did not get the care or treatment needed.

    Conclusion: Living with endometriosis results in great emotional distress in those affected. These women are in need of more support and information from health care providers. It is important that nurses have the knowledge needed to identify the disease.

    Värmetäckens effekt på kroppstemperatur: En experimentell pilotstudie2018Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Background: Inadvertent hypothermia is one of the most common complications during surgery. Hypothermia increases the risk of postoperative infections, blood loss and may cause the patient discomfort. The heat loss often starts at the preoperative ward. One way to prevent hypothermia could be to use self-warming blankets already at the ward.

    Motive: Complications following hypothermia may result in a prolonged stay in hospital resulting in higher costs.

    Aim: The aim of this pilot study was to evaluate the effect of self-warming blankets on body temperature and explore the experience of using a self-warming blanket.

    Methods: A quantitative method was used for this experimental study. 10 participants were recruited by convenience selection. The trial was performed in two sessions, one with a hospital blanket and one with the self-warming blanket. The participants served as their own control. The participants´ ear- and finger temperature was measured in 30 minutes interval. The measured values were analysed in SPSS Statistics. After each session the participants had the opportunity to write comments about the experience.

    Result: The participants finger temperature increased significantly more with the self-warming blanket than with the hospital blanket. Ear temperature increased but was not significant. The great majority described the hospital blanket as comfortable but did feel warmer with the self-warming blanket.

    Discussion: The core temperature responds more slowly to changes in the environment than peripheral body temperature, therefore a longer measure time and a larger number of participants may be used to more clearly see differences. The patients´ experience may be of more importance than measuring their temperature because how comfortable a temperature feels is subjective to each individual
