The objectives of this research were to investigate nursing methods that would effectively reduce the stress levels of cancer patinets with surgery Our research involved objectively measuring the patient's stress levels during post-operative surgery, from the physiological, psychological and sociological angles, and analyzing the influence of these stress levels on the patient's convalescence. We conducted a clinical records survey as well as a clinical survey of the stresses experienced by patients.
(1) Clinical Records Survey : total of 50 cases--34 cancer cases and 16 non-cancer cases. Of the 34 cancer patients, 5 had been told that they had cancer and a further 3 had been told they there was a possibility that they had a malignant growth. In 16 cases, records had been made of the patient's pre-operative reaction to his illness and upcoming surgery, and his psychological status. There were few notes on patient's post-operative psychological status, but obvious sources of stress were
pain at the surgery site, insomnia, physical immobility, thirst, stoma, and physiological changes due to mastectomy.
(2) clinical Survey : 17 cancer patients and 7 non-cancer patients received surgery under general anesthetic. We surveyed their stress status and anxiety levels on admission, before surgery and before discharge using the Manifest Anxiety Scale (MAS). The Average MAS score on admission was 18.82 for cancer patients and 17.57 for non-cancer patients. No significant statistical difference could be discerned between the two groups. Four patients had been informed that they had cancer but this did not seem to create any difference between the two groups.
As with previous research, we conducted a continuous survey to investigate the applicability of the Body Sonic System as a method to reduce stress, in both cancer and surgery patients. The results of this relaxation of the mind and body were to increase the patient's level of self-control and create greater psychological stability. Less
