    Information needs following a diagnosis of oesophageal cancer; self-perceived information needs of patients and family members compared with the perceptions of healthcare professionals: a pilot study2007In: European Journal of Cancer Care, ISSN 0961-5423, E-ISSN 1365-2354, Vol. 16, no 3, 277-85 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This pilot study was undertaken to describe patients' and family members' information needs following a diagnosis of oesophageal cancer and healthcare professionals' (HCP) perceptions concerning patients' and family members' information needs. Another aim was to describe patients' and family members' satisfaction with information provided. Data were collected by means of a self-report questionnaire. A total of 15 patients, 16 family members and 34 HCP participated. Patients and family members consider most information to be important. The high rating for information about tests/treatment and self-care means that both patients and family members consider this to be the most important areas of information. Healthcare professionals tend to underestimate both patients' and family members' needs for information. Patients and family members were only partly satisfied with the information received, with patients in general more satisfied with information given compared with family members. Patients' and family members' needs for information following a diagnosis of oesophageal cancer are substantial and have not been adequately met by HCP. A qualitative study might be helpful to complete the description of patients' and family members' needs. If a questionnaire is employed, it ought to be less extensive.

    A meta-analysis of qualitative studies on living with oesophageal and clinically similar forms of cancer, seen from the perspective of patients and family members2007In: International Journal of Qualitative Studies on Health and Well-being, ISSN 1748-2623, Vol. 2, no 2, 114-27 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study is part of a research programme of which the aim is to generate knowledge about patients' and family members' experiences of living with oesophageal cancer from their perspective. The aim of the present study was to extend this knowledge by adding other forms of cancer: other upper gastrointestinal cancer, and head and neck cancer. These cancer forms have clinical similarities with oesophageal cancer and the survival rates are similar. This study is a qualitative meta-analysis that examines the results reported in 13 qualitative original research reports, published in peer-reviewed nursing journals between April 1998 and June 2006. We used thematic analysis. Three themes were formulated: “running into an unpredictable enemy”, “enduring a fading body” and “entering social silence”. Patients and family members gave voice to a suffering that involved the whole person. Our findings show that the whole person must be given care, and this care must include the whole family

    Long-Term Tracheostomy: Outcome, Cannula care, and Material Wear2007Doctoral thesis, comprehensive summary (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Do people with long-term tracheostomy need hospital care? Which cleaning method is most appropriate for decontamination of inner cannulae? Are tracheostomy tubes changed for rational reasons? There is clearly a lack of evidence based research in this field and the clinical guidelines available are often based on local practice. A tracheostomy is a created opening in trachea to facilitate breathing. It is a direct entry to the deeper airways, e.g. for micro-organisms causing a potential risk for lung infections. Indications for long-term tracheostomy can be, e.g. upper airway obstruction, malformations, or chronic hypoventilation, when ventilation via nasal mask is not possible. The research of the present thesis was conducted at the National Respiratory Centre (NRC) at Danderyd Hospital in Stockholm, Sweden. This unit opened in 1982, with the expressed goal of supporting outpatients with long-term tracheostomy. The overall aims of the thesis were to evaluate the outcome of patients with long-term tracheostomy and to conduct evidence based studies concerning their care.

    A comparison was made for the number of days in hospital care during the 2-year periods before and after the tracheostomy was established. The life expectancy of the general population and the observed life span of a cohort of tracheostomized patients from the start of NRC in 1982 were also compared. Interestingly enough, the need for hospital care was unchanged despite of the tracheostomy. The patients’ observed life spans were remarkably high and for many patients not lower than the life expectancy of Swedish people in general.

    To find a practical and safe decontamination method for inner cannulae we compared two different cleaning methods; detergent followed by chlorhexidine-alcohol, or detergent alone. Samples for bacterial culture were taken before and after cleaning and the numbers of bacteria colonies were counted. The effectiveness of both cleaning methods was greater than expected and the results showed a nearly total elimination of organisms. Thus, the methods investigated were equivalent in achieving decontamination.

    The duration of use in our unit for polymeric tracheostomy tubes, i.e. silicone (Si), polyvinyl chloride (PVC), and polyurethane (PU) was determined and compared. We found, that Si tubes were used for longer periods (three months) than tubes made of PU or PVC (both two months).

    Whether or not surface changes could be observed on the tracheostomy tubes after 30 days’, three and six months’ exposure in the trachea were investigated in collaboration with the Royal Institute of Technology and Sophiahemmet University College in Stockholm, Sweden. The analyzing methods were Scanning Electron Microscopy, Attenuated Total Reflectance Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy, and Differential Scanning Calorimetry. All tubes, except one, showed changes in the surface after 30 days’ exposure. The surface changes had progressed significantly after three and six months' exposure, compared to the changes detected after 30 days. The SF-36 questionnaire and a study specific questionnaire were used to describe the patients’ health-related quality of life and experiences of long-term tracheostomy. The results show that all patients were satisfied with their tracheostomy and demonstrated a numerically mean mental health status score above that of the general population.

    In summary, long-term tracheostomy does not increase the need for hospital care nor does it reduce a patient’s life span. Cleaning the tracheostomy inner cannula with detergent and water is sufficient to achieve decontamination. Si tracheostomy tubes are used longer compared to those made of PVC or PU. The polymeric material investigated suffered evident surface changes after 30 days’ use. Clinical use of polymeric tracheostomy tubes beyond three months cannot be recommended, as we found extensive surface changes and degradation of the polymeric chains. All patients were, in general content, with their tracheostomy. The findings from the present thesis contribute to making the care of long-term tracheostomized patients’ evidence based.

    Clinical use and material wear of polymeric tracheostomy tubes2007In: The Laryngoscope, ISSN 0023-852X, E-ISSN 1531-4995, Vol. 117, no 9, 1552-9 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    OBJECTIVES: The objectives were to compare the duration of use of polymeric tracheostomy tubes, i.e., silicone (Si), polyvinyl chloride (PVC), and polyurethane (PU), and to determine whether surface changes in the materials could be observed after 30 days of patient use. METHODS: Data were collected from patient and technical records for all tracheostomized patients attending the National Respiratory Center in Sweden. In the surface study, 19 patients with long-term tracheostomy were included: six with Bivona TTS Si tubes, eight with Shiley PVC tubes, and five with Trachoe Twist PU tubes. All tubes were exposed in the trachea for 30 days before being analyzed by scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and attenuated total reflectance Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (ATR-FTIR). New tubes and tubes exposed in phosphate-buffered saline were used as reference. RESULTS: Si tubes are used for longer periods of time than those made of PVC (P<.0001) and PU (P=.021). In general, all polymeric tubes were used longer than the recommended 30-day period. Eighteen of the 19 tubes exposed in patients demonstrated, in one or more areas of the tube, evident surface changes. The morphologic changes identified by SEM correlate well with the results obtained by ATR-FTIR. CONCLUSIONS: Si tracheostomy tubes are in general used longer than those made of PVC and PU. Most of the tubes exposed in the trachea for 30 days suffered evident surface changes, with degradation of the polymeric chains as a result.

    Tracheostomy inner cannula care: a randomized crossover study of two decontamination procedures2007In: American Journal of Infection Control, ISSN 0196-6553, E-ISSN 1527-3296, Vol. 35, no 9, 600-5 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    BACKGROUND: Today several methods for decontaminating inner cannulae exist. These methods are not based on scientific data, but often on local clinical tradition. This study compares two different decontamination methods. The aim was to find a practical and safe decontamination method. It is a randomized, single-blinded, comparative crossover study. METHODS: Fifty outpatients with long-term tracheostomy with an inner cannula were consecutively included and randomly allocated to begin with one of two different treatment sequences: detergent and chlorhexidine-alcohol (A) or detergent (B). Samples for bacterial culture were taken before and after decontamination, and the number of bacteria colonies was counted. RESULTS: Before decontamination, the inner cannulae grew high numbers of bacteria, which were parts of the normal flora of the upper respiratory tract and did not differ significantly between the two sequences (AB; BA). The primary variable was the culture count value after chlorhexidine-alcohol/detergent (A) and detergent (B). The effects of both methods were larger than expected, and the results showed a nearly total elimination of organisms. The equivalence criterion, ratio of mean colony counts (A/B) >0.8, was met at a significance level of P<0.001. CONCLUSIONS: Cleaning the tracheostomy inner cannula with detergent and water is sufficient to achieve decontamination.

    Expression of 15-lipoxygenase type-1 in human mast cells2007In: Biochimica et Biophysica Acta, ISSN 0006-3002, Vol. 1771, no 9, 1156-65 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Mast cells play a key role in the pathophysiology of asthma. These cells exert their effector functions by releasing a variety of proinflammatory and immunoregulatory compounds. Mast cells infiltrate the bronchial epithelium and smooth muscle to a higher degree in patients with asthma compared to control subjects. 15-Lipoxygenase type-1 (15-LO-1) is a prooxidant enzyme which is expressed in asthmatic lungs leading to formation of pro- and anti-inflammatory mediators. Here we report that interleukin-4 (IL-4) induced the expression of 15-LO-1 in human cord blood derived mast cells (CBMC) as demonstrated by RT-PCR, western blot and immunocytochemistry. The major metabolite of arachidonic acid formed via the 15-LO pathway in IL-4 treated CBMC was identified as 15-ketoeicosatetraenoic acid (15-KETE, also named 15-oxo-ETE) with smaller amounts of 15-hydroxyeicosatetraenoic acid (15-HETE) as identified by HPLC and mass spectrometry (MS/MS). Furthermore, immunohistochemical stainings demonstrated the expression of 15-LO-1 in mast cells in lung and skin in vivo. Osmotic activation of CBMC with mannitol resulted in activation of the 15-LO-1 pathway. In conclusion, the expression of 15-LO-1 and release of 15-LO-1 derived products by mast cells may contribute to the role of these cells in asthma and other inflammatory diseases.
