Risk factors analysis and rehabilitation nursing countermeasures of senile osteoporotic fracture

Objective: To analyze the risk of elderly patients with osteoporotic fracture and to discuss the factors of rehabilitation nursing.

Methods: 150 cases of senile fracture patients treated in our hospital from May 2016 to May 2017 were selected as the research object, and were divided into non-osteoporotic fracture group (n=100) and osteoporotic fracture group (n=50) according to the nature of fracture. The Logistic regression model was used to analyze the risk factors of osteoporotic fracture in the elderly and the specific rehabilitation nursing countermeasures were discussed.

Results: No significant difference in body weight, blood lipid, smoking, drinking and comorbidity between the two groups (P>0.05). There were significant differences in sex, age, adequate light or not, and bone mineral density (P<0.05). Logistic regression analysis shown that female, older age and lower bone density were independent risk factors for osteoporotic fracture in the elderly (OR: 2.885, 3.233, 3.885, 95% CI: 1.450~4.225, 1.720~5.774, 1.898~6.774, P<0.05).

Conclusion: Female gender, older age, lower bone mineral density were independent risk factors for osteoporotic fracture in the elderly, the instruction of exercise rehabilitation to be guided to prevent the complications, diet and medication care, psychological intervention, discharge guidance can help improve effects of nursing care, to improve patient's prognosis.
