The purpose of this investigation is to determine the impact of simple resistance exercise breaks on physical activity and prolonged sedentary behavior as well as on ratings of discomfort, fatigue, and sleepiness. Participants will be enrolled in a cross-over designed study, where they will be assessed for normal activity patterns and ratings of discomfort, fatigue, and sleepiness during a typical week and compared to a week where they engage in hourly resistance exercise breaks. Subjects will also complete a feasibility questionnaire at the end to determine if such programming could be implemented into daily living. The hypothesis is that engaging in these simple, hourly resistance breaks will result in decreased ratings of discomfort, fatigue, and sleepiness as well as ratings of high feasibility for implementation of similar resistance exercise programming into their normal, everyday life. Total time spent enrolled in the study will be 4 weeks, however, the participants will only need to report to the lab on 5 different occasions totaling 120 minutes split over those 5 days. Visit one will be roughly 60 minutes long, with the following 4 visits taking roughly 15 minutes each with a visit at the beginning of the week and end of the week for both the control and experimental week.
The aim of this research is to determine the effect of foot reflexology applied to primiparous women who had cesarean section in the postpartum period on pain, fatigue, sleep quality and lactation. This research is a randomized controlled trial. The study was conducted in Şanlıurfa, which has the highest fertility rate in Turkey.
This research aims to determine the effect of acupressure applied to nurses actively working in internal clinics on sleep quality and fatigue during the COVID-19 pandemic process. This research hypothesizes that acupressure improves sleep quality and reduces fatigue.
In this study, 45 healthy participants between 20 and 40 of age will be included. After obtaining the consent, the participants will be categorized into two(A&B) groups randomly for cross-over study. Each of group will accept either conventional taping or Chinese medicine technique taping before muscle fatigue exercise. To compare the preventive effect, Myoton PRO, pulse analysis equipment, etc will be applied for evaluation. The application of Chinese medicine technique (ie. Chinese medicine functional reduction) taking the kinetic chain into consideration may improve body's functional movement.
The LIFT project aims to thoroughly investigate the current status of health care in Germany regarding cancer-related fatigue from the institutional, professionals' and patients' perspective.
This study is a randomized controlled trial in which hospitalized patients with anemia are randomized to receive transfusion at: a) Hb<9g/dL (liberal transfusion strategy), or b) Hb<7g/dL (restrictive transfusion strategy). We are measuring self-reported fatigability, fatigue, and activity levels at randomization and 7 days post hospital discharge in both trial arms. In a subset of 75 patients in each trial arm (150 total), we will are administering the 6 Minute Walk Test at randomization and 7 days post discharge.
The MEXICO study is an observational study that aims to identify underlying mechanisms contributing to severe exercise intolerance in the presence of persistent COVID-19 symptoms (Long COVID).
The study aims to determine the effect of aerobic exercise on stress and fatigue of employed lactating women.
When receiving adjuvant chemotherapy, a variety of symptoms will appear and it is very painful. These symptoms occur at the same time and are related to each other. The symptom distress may affect the patient's compliance with adjuvant chemotherapy and whether the adjuvant chemotherapy can be completed on schedule. Among the symptoms of trouble, cancer-related fatigue is the most common, and the incidence can be as high as 99%. In this study, I want to track the population of breast cancer patients receiving adjuvant chemotherapy, and women in the control group who receive only anti-hormonal breast cancer or carcinoma in situ. During the treatment period, at different time points, it also collects subjective symptom distress changes and changes. The study aimed cancer-related exhaustion is measured to gain a deeper understanding of the effects of symptom troubles suffered by patients during treatment. We also hoped that in the future, it can be provided to colleagues in clinical work and can be given to breast cancer patients receiving adjuvant chemotherapy and increased holistic care quality.
Among healthcare providers, nursing is a stressful and compassionate profession. Nurses empathetically support patients with pain, loneliness, disease and even confronted with death in line with their critically physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual needs and provide comfort, help, presence for them. Because nurses are frequently exposed to highly stressful and emotional situations, they suffer compassion fatigue (CF) over time under repeated exposures. CF will have a series of physiological, social, emotional, spiritual, and cognitive effects on nurses, threatening the existential integrity of them. The effects include high rates of anxiety and depressive disorders, decreased productivity, increased clinical errors, decreased quality of care and level of job satisfaction. Therefore, it is particularly important to pay attention to compassion fatigue to maintain mental health of nurses. Compassion fatigue refers to that in the process of providing assistance, the helper bears the pain of the recipient due to empathy, which reduces the helper's own energy or interest.Based on a widespread conceptual model, CF consists of two constructs: burnout and secondary traumatic stress. Nurses are at a great risk of compassion fatigue. CF is gradually becoming a serious problem which can affect nurses' physical and psychological health, performance, job satisfaction and quality of care . Thus, investigating the prevalence of CF among nurses and its related factors are warranted to prevent CF among nursing population. Research has studied the influencing factors of CF. Some studies have found that the demographic characteristics, worked related factors , the degree of exposure to traumatic events and psychological factors are important factors affecting nurses' compassion fatigue. Some studies suggest that resilience, social support, sense of control and meaningful recognition are negatively correlated with CF . Among them, resilience and self-efficacy are considered as important psychological factors affecting the individual's mental health, and they play an important role in the occurrence of CF. The working pressure of clinical nurses comes from the situations that they are exposed to patients' traumatic events and give excessive empathy for a long-term. CF among nurses is an undesirable outcome caused by maladaptation to this pressure. What's more, resilience, and self-efficacy play an important role in individual coping and psychological adjustment in face of stressful events. Therefore, it is necessary to explore the roles of resilience and self-efficacy in the process of CF. According to the theoretical path analysis of professional caregivers' quality of life, work environment, client environment and person environment factors have an influence on the development of compassion fatigue . Regarding to the psychological stress system , When confronted with stressful events, the individuals will have a stress response as a joint result of environmental factors and personnel factors. Thus, in accordance with the above two theories, being exposed to traumatic events is considered as a stressor, which could lead to CF. During this process, several external factors (work-related environmental factors) and internal factors (personality, social support) have effects on CF. In this study, resilience, and self-efficacy will be recognized as individual psychological characteristics and CF will be treated as a psychological change. Although there have been several studies on the predictors of CF in nurses around the world, limited knowledge exists in considering both internal factors (resilience and self-efficacy) and external predictive factors (demographic, work-related factors) of CF among nurses, especially in mainland China. The study aims to investigate the level of compassion fatigue among Chinese nurses and test the influences of demographic characteristics, work-related factors, resilience, and self-efficacy on compassion fatigue.
