Changes of Functional Status, Symptoms Distress and Quality of Life in Patients Undergoing Coronary Artery Bypass Graft (CABG) Surgery
Changes of Functional Status, Symptoms Distress and Quality of Life in Patients Undergoing CABG Surgery

The purpose of this study is to explore the changes of functional status, symptoms distress and quality of life in patients undergoing coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery.

This is an observational cohort study. The participants will be inpatients undergoing elective CABG surgery at one tertiary medical center. Functional status (including activity of daily living, cognitive and nutritional status), symptom distress, and quality of life will be measured at multiple points: pre-surgery, day 1 to 7 post-surgery, before discharge, and 2-4 weeks after discharge. Structured questionnaire will be used to collect demographic and medical characteristics. The Barthel Index, hand-held dynamometer, 6-minute walking test, Mini-Nutritional Assessment (MNA), Mini-Mental State Examination (MMSE), Confusion Assessment Method (CAM), Symptoms Distress Scale, and Short-Form-36 Health Survey (SF-36) will be used to collect functional data and compared for changes. The trajectory of functional status, symptoms distress, and quality of life will be further analyzed. The findings will add to the literature by raising the awareness on changes of functional status, symptoms distress, and quality of life for patients undergoing elective CABG so targeted and timely intervention could be developed and planned.
