Abstract [en]

Introduction: In Sweden the definition of ambulance nursing is the examination and treatment of sick or injured people done by ambulance nurses during transport.  This means not only focus on the illness or injury but also the human being treated. The paramedic service must be based on the presumption that the medical needs of the patients are guaranteed, and that the expectations and demands of the public are satisfied. Competence and availability are basic terms for a well-functional paramedic service. There is a lot of pressure put on the people working with pre-hospital nursing. One mistake can lead to serious consequences for the patient. Purpose: The purpose of this study is describing patient’s experience of pre-hospital nursing. Method: The study is based on ten scientific articles. The articles were found on the internet by searching in the databases Academic Search Elite, Cinahl and MedLine. Results: The following themes have been identified: a feeling of uncertainty of the patient – how ill am I?, ambulance or own car?,  the patients worry about if the ambulance will arrive in time, voluntary self-surrender, patients experience of the competence of the staff, lack of understanding that an ambulance is more than a transport service. Discussion: Since the study is based on such a limited material it's not reasonable to draw any extensive conclusions. Still the results are so unanimous so we think that they are well worth to take into consideration.

Abstract [sv]

Introduktion: I Sverige definieras ambulanssjukvård med undersökningen och behandlingen av sjuka eller skadade människor, vilket utförs av ambulanspersonal i samband med transport. Ambulanssjukvården måste bygga på förutsättningen att patientens medicinska behov säkerställs och att allmänhetens förväntningar och krav blir tillgodosedda. Kompetens och tillgänglighet är grundläggande begrepp för en väl fungerande ambulanssjukvård. Det ställs stora krav på personalen inom den akuta prehospitala sjukvården. Ett enda felaktiga beslut kan få svåra konsekvenser för patienten. Syfte: Syftet med studien är att belysa patienters upplevelser av prehospital sjukvård. Metod: Litterturstudie vars resultat baseras på tio vetenskapliga artiklar publicerade 2003-2008. Litteratursökningen utfördes med de elektroniska databaserna Academic Serch Elite, CINAHL och MedLine. Resultat: De rubriker som identifierades var: en känsla av osäkerhet hos patienten, hur sjuk är jag?, ambulans eller egen bil?, oro hos patienten, när kommer ambulansen?, frivilligt "självöverlämnande", patienters upplevelse av personalens kompetens, och brist på insikt om att ambulans är mer än en transportservice. Diskussion: Att, utifrån ett begränsat material som det vi har arbetat med, dra några långtgående slutsatser är inte rimligt. Vi anser dock att samstämmigheten i resultatet är så god att vi vill klassa resultatet som väl värt att ta i beaktande.
