Background. To observe the effect of Huaiqihuang granules combined with comprehensive nursing intervention on children with primary nephrotic syndrome (PNS) and its effect on renal function index. Methods. A total of 104 patients were included, and the patients were randomly divided into two groups, with 52 cases in each group. The control group was treated with glucocorticoid, and the study group was treated with Huaiqihuang granules. The clinical efficacy of the two groups was observed. The levels of TG, TC, EGFR, 24 h UTP, BUN, Scr, IgA, IgG, IgM, IFN-γ and TNF-α were compared between two groups before and after treatment. The incidence of adverse reactions and recurrence rate after treatment were compared between the two groups. Results. The effective rate of the study group (94.23%) was significantly higher than that of the control group (78.85%). Before treatment, there was no significant difference in TG and TC levels between the two groups. After treatment, the levels of TG and TC in both groups were decreased, and the decrease was more obvious in the study group. Compared with before treatment, the levels of 24 h UTP, BUN, Scr, IFN-γ, and TNF-α in both groups were significantly decreased after treatment, while EGFR, IgA, IgG, and IgM levels were significantly increased. Compared with the control group, the changes of each index in the study group were more obvious after treatment. After treatment, the incidence of adverse reactions and recurrence rate in the study group were significantly lower than those in the control group. Conclusions. Huaiqihuang granules combined with comprehensive nursing treatment in children with PNS can reduce the occurrence of recent recurrence and adverse reactions and improve the cellular immune function and renal function.

Background: While aesthetics in nursing practice brings out the beauty in nursing, studies regarding how aesthetics are implemented in practice are lacking. Objective: To describe the meanings of aesthetics in nursing practice experienced by nurses in Indonesia. Methods: This qualitative study employed a hermeneutic phenomenological approach based on Gadamerian philosophy. Thirteen nurses were asked to reflect on their experiences of providing aesthetics in their practice through drawing, followed by individual face-to-face interviews. Data were collected in a public hospital in West Sumatra, Indonesia. The interview transcripts and the pictures were analysed following van Manen’s approach. Results: Five thematic categories were revealed: 1) Engaging in caring for persons; 2) Full of compassion; 3) Sympathetic place of care; 4) A joyful time of care; and 5) Distracting the inconvenience in care. Conclusion: Aesthetics in nursing practice is understood and experienced by Indonesian nurses in various ways, not only limited to the visual beauty, cleanness or tidiness of nursing intervention, but are expressed in other ways within caring, including providing care with compassion, applying the art of communication, relieving the pain, and applying innovation in care. These findings can be used to inform nurses in practising aesthetic nursing for enhancing the quality of care. Funding: Faculty of Nursing Research Grant, Prince of Songkla University, Thailand.

ABSTRACT Objective: to develop an ICNP® terminology subset for the care of people with heart failure. Methods: this is a methodological study, which used the theoretical framework of the Mid-Range Nursing Theory for Cardiovascular Rehabilitation, with the steps: Construction of nursing diagnoses/outcomes and interventions statements and Cross-mapping of statements constructed. Results: forty-two diagnosis/outcome statements and 179 nursing intervention statements were constructed, organized based on five theory concepts, with a higher prevalence of statements related to “Rehabilitative care”, “Psychosocial support for patients and families” and “Supervised cardiovascular rehabilitation program”. Final considerations: it was possible to build nursing diagnosis/outcome and intervention statements for developing a terminology subset for the care of people with heart failure, based on the chosen theory.

Background: Dysphagia often occurs in post-stroke patients, causing aspiration that can result in disability or death. Nurses have an essential role to play in preventing these complications as they 24/7 care for patients. However, there is no written standard of nursing care regarding specific interventions of post-stroke dysphagia in reality. Objective: The purpose of this article is to conduct a literature review of interventions that can be made in patients with post-stroke dysphagia so that it can be a recommendation for Indonesian nursing standards. Design: Electronic literature searches PubMed, EBSCO (Medline), ProQuest, and ScienceDirect databases from January 2011 to October 2020. There was sixteen studies reviewed included in this systematic study were experimental, randomized controlled trials, or systematic reviews (which are also experimental designs, randomized controlled trials). The study focused on non-invasive interventions performed on post-stroke dysphagia patients. Results: Interventions in dysphagia found, namely: The use of food thickeners against the risk of aspiration resulted in the patient's swallowing ability significantly increased by 71.9% (p <0.01); Chin down intervention combined with thickening fluid provides a solution to improve the nutritional needs of patients dysphagia post-stroke; Tongue training interventions, swallowing training and speech therapy; Tongue stretching exercises that have a positive effect on tongue motility and oromotor function in post-stroke dysphagia patients; Intervention of Tongue resistance training that increases the strength of the tongue and reduces fluid residue in the vallecular; and early screening of dysphagia by nurses using formal guidelines to manage dysphagia patients thereby reducing chest infections and mortality. Conclusion: Nurses should not diagnose dysphagia, but can identify post-stroke dysphagia to determine the interventions necessary for nutrition management, hydration, and aspiration prevention. Interventions include early dysphagia screening within 24 hours after stroke, thickening nutrition according to nutritionist recommendations, laryngeal elevation exercises, peripheral stimulation, posture regulation, and education on eating and drinking.

Purpose: The purpose of this study is to analyze the mediating effect of family relationship between personality traits and postpartum depression by using the Actor-Partner Interdependence Mediation Model (APIMeM).Methods: Participants were 197 married couples within one year of childbirth. The APIMeM using path analysis was used to determine direct and indirect effects of personality and family relationships on postpartum depression between wives and husbands in AMOS 22.0.Results: Data showed an actor effect suggesting that the higher the neuroticism level in wives, the higher the postpartum depression level. In husbands, data indicated an actor effect suggesting that the higher the neuroticism level in husbands, the higher the postpartum depression level; however, neither wives nor husbands showed a partner effect. Data showed an actor effect suggesting that the higher the family relationship level for both wives and husbands, the lower the postpartum depression level; however, neither wives nor husbands showed a partner effect. Data showed a mediating effect of neuroticism in wives on postpartum depression through the family relationship.Conclusion: The study results indicate that, to prevent postpartum depression, it is necessary to develop a nursing intervention program for couples that can improve the personalities and family relationship of couples.

Introduction: The aging of China's population has further deepened, and according to the results of the seventh national census, the population aged 60 years and above in China was 264.02 million, accounting for 18.70% (China.2021).The rapid growth of the elderly population has led to an increase a geriatric orthopedic morbidity. The hip fracture is one of the common orthopedic diseases, which has posed a severe threat to the elderly's life and health (Yu, 2019).Purpose: In this study, we investigated the domestic and international literature, focusing on the analysis of DVT nursing prevention programs for elderly patients after hip arthroplasty, and proposed the current nursing research progress in preventing DVT to help elderly patients actively cope with DVT, improve the quality of life in later life, and make DVT a truly preventable disease.Method: Electronic searches using scholarly databases were employed and only significant articles that met the review objective were utilized.Findings: Currently, the main treatment option for hip fracture patients in clinical practice is surgery, and how to prevent Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) is an important task in the postoperative care of elderly orthopedic patients (Li, 2016). Research studies have shown that all elderly patients are at a very high risk of DVT during hospitalization, but the current trend is that 50% of patients at high risk of thrombosis are still not actively and effectively prevented from developing thrombosis for various reasons.Conclusion: This disease, which has a high incidence, a high mortality rate, and is difficult to prevent, requires increased attention and necessitates exploration to derive effective nursing intervention programs and related nursing measures to prevent reduce the formation of DVT and alleviate suffering for patient (Xu, 2016).In this review, we summarized the main nursing methods for preventing deep vein thrombosis of the lower extremities after hip fracture surgery in the elderly. Elderly patients are a special group of people, both physically and psychologically in a relatively fragile state, especially after the operation, so they need to be more careful in nursing work. In addition to general physical care, the care of their psychological state is also extremely important. This article describes in detail the physiological and psychological nursing interventions for patients, which can effectively guide and help medical staff to cope with the clinical care of such patients, and enable patients to better recover from surgery and trauma, and obtain a good prognosis.
