    Abstract [en]

    Background: A major number of people in Sweden suffer from heart failure and often succumb to the poor prognosis associated with the disease. Experiences among the affected include the various negative symptoms that heart failure generates as well as side effects from medical treatment. Such side effects may be difficult to deal with. Unpleasant emotions can worsen symptoms in people that have heart failure. Nurses should be able to identify these emotions and understand why they emerge in people that have heart failure as a means to better care for them. Aim: The aim is to describe how people living with heart failure describe their emotions. Method: Eleven scientific nursing articles were analyzed using Evans systematic method for reviewing literature as inspiration. Key findings were brought together and formed two major themes and nine sub-themes. Result: The result indicated numerous emotions associated with heart failure. They were divided into positive and negative emotions. Emotions that are extrovert, emotions caused by threat, emotions of guilt, emotions of loss, emotions facing the unknown, emotions encompassing dependency, emotions encompassing appreciation of life, emotions encompassing security and positive emotions concerning ones future appeared as sub-themes. Conclusion: This body of work provides a better picture of the emotional outcomes associated with heart failure. Nurses should use this knowledge to better promote health. Finally it emerged that more research concerning gender and emotion are needed.

    Keywords: Emotions, heart failure, negative, positive, qualitative literature review
