  1. Seeking normalcy : the experience of coronary artery bypass surgery.

    Article - En anglais

    The aim of this study was to describe the experience of coronary artery bypass surgery (CAB) from the patient's perspective.

    A grounded theory method was used to explore the postoperative experiences of eight men and one woman following CAB surgery.

    The major process individuals engaged in following CAB surgery was seeking normalcy which involved three conceptual stages: surviving, restoring, and being fixed.

    Some individuals sought other explanations for the symptoms accompanying heart disease.
