The effect of routine health exercises on the prevention of lower extremity deep vein thrombosis following pneumonectomy <p><strong>Objective</strong>: To explore the clinical effects of procedural health exercises on the prevention of postoperative deep vein thrombosis in patients following pneumonectomy. In this manuscript patients who had thoracic surgery were included in this study to explore the effects of DVT after exercise.<br><strong>Method</strong>: 118 patients admitted to the hospital from January to December 2020 were selected and assigned into two groups according to the time of admission. 51 patients from January to June 2020 were set as the control group, 67 patients from July to December 2020 were selected as part of the observation group. The control group was provided with routine nursing following a lung operation. The observation group was opened 6 hours after the operation except for the routine nursing. The blood flow velocity of the femoral vein and popliteal vein and the occurrence of deep vein thrombosis were compared between the two groups.<br><strong>Results</strong>: There were three cases of lower extremity venous thrombosis in the observation group, which was significantly lower than that in the control group (6 cases). The blood flow velocity of the lower extremity deep vein in the observation group was higher than that of the control group (p&lt;0.05).<br><strong>Conclusion</strong>: Routine health exercises can effectively improve the blood flow velocity of the lower extremity vein, by reducing the incidence of lower extremity deep vein thrombosis following pneumonectomy, and by improving the quality of life of patients, which is worthy of clinical promotion.</p> Xiao Xia Yan Bei Chen Yan Jun Mao Copyright (c) 2022-09-16 2022-09-16 36 3 Application of risk management for nursing patients with hematologic malignancies <p><strong>Background</strong>: Minimal data is available for the critical care of the hematological malignant patients. In this study quality of care was compared for the hematological and the solid tumor patients. The malignant patients are more prone to death due to decreased nursing care. They require more careful treatment than any other disease.<br><strong>Methods</strong>: Patients with cancer during September 2019 and February 2021, who had undergone critical care were included in this study. Data was obtained from the hospitals databases.<br><strong>Results</strong>: Out of the 814 patients, only 114 patients were included in this study. 30-day life hematological malignant patients are 55% as compared to other cancer types which amount to 2.8% P value is 0.03, a similar observation has been found in the admission at the hospital (78.9%) as compared to the other patients 46.9% p value less than 0.001, less than 2 days of hospitalization is 24% in the case of the malignant cancers as compared to the other patients (P value less than 0.001). The aggressive care composite score is higher among the malignant patients relatively as compared to other patients. In the multivariate analysis it has been found that malignancy is associated with aggressive life care (P&lt;0.001).<br><strong>Conclusion</strong>: It has been concluded that malignant cancer patients have received more care as compared to other patients at the hospital.</p> Haixia Bao Feng Wei Yongqin Ge Xiaming Zhu Erli Zhang Copyright (c) 2022-09-16 2022-09-16 36 3
