Abstract [en]

Background: Enteral nutrition is artificial nutrition, which is delivered via a tube to the gastrointestinal tract when the ability to eat is reduced. Previous research shows that both relatives and nurses think that enteral nutrition can enable continued life, but they also emphasize that it can limit everyday life. According to nurses, good knowledge about enteral nutrition and how it should be administered is needed to provide adequate care to patients. Relatives can get bad conscience if they go to social events by themselves when the family member refrain because the events often include meals. Enteral nutrition can take up the relatives everyday life and it can lead to that their previous lifestyle change and less time for themselves and their own hobbies. Aim: To describe women's experiences of being dependent on enteral nutrition. Method: A qualitative, manifest content analysis with an inductive approach. Result: It was found that well-being could be experienced and that support and good relationships were important in everyday life. The women´s relationship to food could change and they could experience limitations in everyday life and suffering. Conclusion: It was found that a joy of life could be experienced, simultaneously it was a challenge to live with enteral nutrition.

Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: Enteral nutrition är konstgjord näring som tillförs via en sond till mag-tarmkanalen när förmågan att äta blivit nedsatt. Tidigare forskning visar att både anhöriga och sjuksköterskor anser att enteral nutrition kan möjliggöra fortsatt liv, dock framhäver de att den kan begränsa vardagen. Enligt sjuksköterskor kan det behövas goda kunskaper om enteral nutrition och hur den ska administreras för att kunna ge patienter adekvat vård. Anhöriga kan få dåligt samvete om de går själva till sociala evenemang när familjemedlemmen avstår på grund av att de ofta innefattar måltider. De anhörigas tidigare livsstil kan förändras och det kan leda till mindre tid till sig själva och sina fritidsintressen, då dagarna planeras utefter enterala nutritionen. Syfte: Att beskriva kvinnors erfarenheter av att vara beroende av enteral nutrition. Metod: En kvalitativ manifest innehållsanalys. Resultat: Det framkom i resultatet att ett välbefinnande kunde upplevas och att stöd och goda relationer var viktiga i vardagen för kvinnorna. Kvinnorna fick en förändrad relation till mat och de kunde uppleva begränsningar i vardagen och ett lidande. Slutsats: Det konstaterades att livsglädje kunde upplevas, samtidigt som det var en prövning att leva med enteral nutrition.
