MOYA RUIZ, María Auxiliadora. Study of the emotional state of patients on hemodialysis. Enferm Nefrol [online]. 2017, vol.20, n.1, pp.48-56. ISSN 2255-3517.

Introduction: Patients with advanced chronic kidney disease suffer various changes in their lives, due to their own illness and treatment, which cause anxiety-depressive disorders and alterations in emotional state. Objective: The aim of the present study was to assess the emotional state of patients on hemodialysis and to identify emotional support needs. Patients and Method: We studied 66 patients, 68.2% men and the mean age was 65.5 ± 16.25 years. A descriptive cross-sectional observational study was carried out at the Clinical Management Unit (CMU) of Nephrology at the Reina Sofía University Hospital (HURS) in Córdoba. The demographic variables added in the study were: age, sex, marital status, other associated pathologies, economic level and occupation. The outcomevariable was the emotional state, as measured by the Tool for Detection of the Emotional State of Patients in Dialysis (EE-D). Results: Of the total number of patients, 86.3% were retired and the average monthly income was 878.79 ± 533.35 €. More than 42% had at least 2 or more pathologies associated with their underlying disease and 62.1% were married. Regarding the variables of sadness and nervousness, 54.5% were sad, and 59.1% were nervous. On the other hand, 92.4% had altered to a greater or lesser extent the emotional state. Conclusions: There is a high prevalence of altered emotional state in the studied patients and a high number of them need emotional support.
