Purpose: The purpose of this study was to examine self care compliance, family support, and depression in patients with congestive heart failure.
Method: The participants were 105 outpatients with congestive heart failure. Data were collected using a questionnaire survey on self care compliance, family support, and depression. The collected data were analyzed using the SPSS Win 10.0 program. Result: 1. The total score for Self care compliance was 78.34 out of a possible 120 and was significantly high for people in ages between 70-79 years and people who were not employed. Exercise compliance was significantly high in men and classifications I & II of the NYHA class. Compliance with smoking and alcohol cessation were significantly high in women. Medication compliance was significantly high in the group which had experience with hospitalization. Family support was 31.75 out of a possible 40 and showed significant differences depending on spouse status and religion. Depression was 30.18 out of a possible 64 and was significantly high in the group whose educational level was above college graduation or who were under 65 years of age.
Conclusion: The results suggest that nurses have to emphasize smoking and alcohol cessation for men, exercise for women and total self care compliance for patients under 65 years of age.
