Effect of nursing intervention on liver cancer patients undergoing interventional therapy

Objective: This study aimed to explore the effect of nursing intervention on the pain nursing of liver cancer patients undergoing interventional therapy.

Methods: Eighty-two cases of liver cancer patients with interventional-therapy-related pain admitted in the oncology department of our hospital from March 2015 to March 2016 were recruited as research subjects. These patients were randomly divided into two groups by random number table. Forty-one patients in the control group were given conventional nursing, whereas 41 patients in the observation group were subjected to collaborative nursing. Pain remission rates and adverse reactions were compared between the two groups.

Results: The remission rates were 95.12% in the observation group and 75.61% in the control group, and the difference was statistically significant (P<0.05). The levels of the CD4 (27.45 ± 5.48), CD8 (35.97 ± 7.16), and NK cells (20.79 ± 2.49), as well as the CH4/CD8 ratio (0.69 ± 0.18), of the patients in the observation group were significantly higher than the values of (38.45 ± 5.98), (20.45 ± 6.41), (39.44 ± 3.49), and (1.31 ± 0.48), respectively, in the control group. Moreover, the differences were statistically significant (P<0.05). Meanwhile, the incidence rates of nausea, vomiting, constipation, and other adverse reactions in the observation group were lower than those of the control group (P<0.05).

Conclusion: The collaborative nursing model for liver cancer patients with interventional-therapyrelated pain can significantly improve pain remission rates and reduce adverse reactions.
