Abstract

Post-cardiac surgery patients have a high rate of developing depression, which can effect their compliance with cardiac rehab. This literature review was done to examine if depression affects adherence to cardiac rehabilitation after cardiac surgery, and the recommendations and new screening protocols are as followed. The effect of depression on adherence to cardiac rehab was studied by the review of five different articles. All articles were taken from the CINAHL and Health Source: Nursing/Academic databases. Ten articles were read and analyzed, and the literature review was narrowed down to five articles. Three studies looked at proper screening techniques and nurses involvement in screening cardiac patients for depression, and the other two focused on depression’s true effects on adherence and motivation to complete a cardiac rehabilitation program. The five studies were compared to establish data trends and the validity of the data that was collected by the researchers. The studies showed that there was a direct correlation between depression and noncompliance with cardiac rehabilitation programs. It was found that standard screening protocols should be put in place for all post cardiac surgery patients. Further research showed that nurses should have proper education to distinguish signs and symptoms of post-cardiac surgery depression.
