Clinical study of respiratory nursing in prevention of nosocomial respiratory tract infection in patients with acute left ventricle heart failure

Objective: To study the clinical effect of respiratory nursing on the prevention of nosocomial respiratory tract infection in patients with acute left ventricle heart failure.

Methods: A total of 90 patients with acute left ventricle heart failure treated in our hospital from February 2015 to February 2017 were randomly selected as the objects according to the order of admission and divided into study group (n=45) as well as control group (n=45). The control group received routine care while the study group was given respiratory care besides the treatment in control group. Incidence of respiratory tract infection, quality of care and quality of life were compared between the two groups.

Results: Compared with the results in the control group, in the study group the incidence of respiratory tract infection was lower and the quality of care as well as the quality of life were also higher of significant difference (P<0.05).

Conclusion: Respiratory nursing can effectively reduce the incidence of respiratory tract infection and improve the quality of life in patients with acute left ventricle heart failure, thus worthy of clinical reference and promotion.
