Abstract

MARQUES, Veronius da Rosa et al. Avaliação da intensidade da dor de pacientes renais crônicos em tratamento hemodialítico. Rev. dor [online]. 2016, vol.17, n.2, pp.96-100. ISSN 1806-0013.  http://dx.doi.org/10.5935/1806-0013.20160023.

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES:

Chronic renal patients refer different types of pain, with variable intensity and location. So, this study aimed at assessing pain of chronic renal patients on hemodialysis.

METHODS:

This is a transversal and analytical study carried out with 88 patients on hemodialysis in a Nephrology Unit of the Northwest region of Rio Grande do Sul. Data were collected from May to July 2014, by means of a Socio-Demographic/ Clinic Characterization Form and McGill Questionnaire, short form, and were analyzed by means of the Statistical Package for the Social Sciences.

RESULTS:

From participants, 57.5% were males, 58.11% were married and 49.4% were elderly. As to pain intensity during session, 75% had no pain, followed by mild pain (17%), moderate (4%) and severe (3.4%) pain. At the end of the session, 58% remained without pain; however approximate percentages of mild or moderate pain (20.5% and 19.3%) and severe pain (2.3%) have shown increased pain intensity during the course of hemodialysis.

CONCLUSION:

Results are important as subsidies to qualify multiprofessional team actions toward attention to chronic renal patients and extensive to their families.
