Abstract
Objective: To explore the effect of the cluster nursing mode combined with blood pressure regulation on the surgical tolerance of patients with esophageal cancer and hypertension. Methods: The clinical data of 86 patients with esophageal cancer and hypertension treated in our hospital (February 2016–February 2017) were retrospectively analyzed. The patients were randomly split into research group and reference group, with 43 cases in each group. The reference group received routine nursing, while the research group received cluster nursing combined with blood pressure regulation. The SBP, DBP and heart rates at D1 (at admission), D2 (2 h before surgery) and D3 (2 h after surgery) were compared between the two groups. In addition, the surgical tolerance, ESCA scores at 1 month after discharge, personality and behavior characteristics before and after intervention, and incidence of postoperative complications were also compared between the two groups. Results: With no obvious difference in SBP, DBP and heart rates at D1 between the two groups (P > 0.05), the SBP, DBP and heart rates at D2 and D3 in the research group were obviously lower compared with the reference group (P < 0.001). With no obvious difference in the number of patients with surgical tolerance of Grades I, II and III after intervention between two groups (P > 0.05), the number of patients with surgical tolerance of Grade IV in the research group was significantly higher than that in the reference group (P < 0.05). The scores of self-concept, self-care skills, self-care responsibility and health knowledge in the research group at 1 month after discharge were obviously higher compared with the reference group (P < 0.001). The scores of EPQ-L (lie), EPQ-P (psychoticism) and EPQ-N (neurosism) after intervention in both groups were obviously lower compared with those before intervention (P < 0.001), and the scores of EPQ-L, EPQ-P and EPQ-N after intervention in the research group were significantly lower than those in the reference group (P < 0.001). The total incidence of postoperative complications in the research group was significantly lower compared with the reference group (P < 0.05). Conclusion: Cluster nursing combined with blood pressure regulation can significantly improve the surgical tolerance of patients with esophageal cancer and hypertension and enhance the self-care ability after surgery, with obvious therapeutic effect, which is worthy of promotion and application.
