CASTRO TEIJEIRO, Jesús. Scientific production on cardiac and coronary emergency nursing: literature analysis. Enferm. glob. [online]. 2010, n.20. ISSN 1695-6141.

Main Objective: To know how many publications have been produced on the subject of cardiac and coronary emergency nursing field and the way they have been written, and discover how this literature can be recovered. Methodology: The bibliographic review has been done through Medline and Cinahl, by using keywords as "Emergency Nursing" [Mesh] AND "Heart Disease" [Mesh]; Cuiden and IME, by using key words as "Enferm*", "Card" and "Urgen". The search was carried out between 2003 and 2008 inclusive. The analyzed variables were: publication date, the language used in the article, the author's work affiliation and geographic area, the magazine in which the article was published and type of article. Main results: 181 articles have been found in Medline and Cinahl, no results have been obtained from national database. 28.18 % of them were published in 2008, 95.18% were written in English, 44.20% were written by American authors. None of them were Spanish. Main Conclusion: There is poor scientific production on cardiac and coronary emergency nursing. It is hard to get all of the information due to a lack of information in the database such as author, article type or theme.

Keywords : Emergencies; Nursing; Cardiology.
