Hospitalized hypertensive adults: perception about disease severity and quality of life

Hospitalized hypertensive adults: perception about disease severity and quality of life

Revista Latino-Americana de Enfermagem 9(3): 51-57

The purpose of this descriptive study was to identify the perception of life quality in hospitalized hypertensive adults, confronting the data related to life quality with perceptions of disease gravity. The population comprised 83 patients hospitalized in the Medical Clinic of the University Hospital at the Federal University of Mato Grosso do Sul (UFMS). The data were collected by means of interviews using a health evaluation instrument that had been translated and validated in Brazil, the SF-36. The main results showed that, in view of the studied patients, the perception of life quality as well as the perception of absence of disease gravity were good.
