Fang Wang


Objective: To investigate the effect of nursing intervention on the psychological states of hemodialysis patients with uremia. Method: 57 hemodialysis patients with uremia who received regular hemodialysis in our hospital were gathered, and were divided into the control group and the research group randomly, between which the control group was treated giving routine life nursing care, while the research group was given psychological nursing care with the same treatment of the control group as a basis. Then, Zung Self-rating Depression Scale (SDS) and Self-rating Anxiety Scale (SAS) were used to evaluate the psychological states of hemodialysis patients with uremia before the intervention and five months after the intervention respectively. Result: Three months later, in the research group, the scores of SDS and SAS of those 27 hemodialysis patients with uremia reduced 5.7 points and 5.5 points respectively; the results were significantly higher than those of the control group, and differences were statistically significant. Conclusion: Reasonable and effective nursing intervention can relieve the anxiety and depression of hemodialysis patients with uremia and can prevent the development of bad psychological factors.
