Purpose: Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is frequently yet little understood disease. Review was performed to promote understanding on the characteristics, pathophysiology, and risk factors of IBS. Content: IBS is characterized by abdominal discomfort associated with pain and altered bowel function; structural and biochemical abnormalities are absent. Generally IBS is more prevalent in women and people with higher educational and social background, but there are some controversies. IBS is diagnosed by the Rome II or Manning criteria after excluding organic gastrointestinal diseases. The pathophysioloy is explained by abnormal control mechanism of central and enteric nervous system. Mucosal immunity, secretions, and neurotransmitter are also associated with the hypersensitivity and motility change of bowel function. Stress is known as a major triggering factor and contributed to symptoms. Other risk factors are genetic elements, childhood experiences, inflammation, anxiety, depression, diet, and sleep disorders.

Purpose: This study was to examine the effects of foot reflexology on ADL and fatigue in stroke patients. Method: The subjects were 31 stroke patients hospitalized in the Oriental Medicine Hospital of D University from June to November, 2002. Foot reflexology was applied to the experimental group twice a week for 6 weeks, 40 minutes each. For the data analysis,
-test was conducted to verify the homogeneity of general characteristics and clinical characteristics, and t-test was done to verify the homogeneity of ADL and fatigue. To examine the relative efficacy of the intervention, ANOVA and ANCOVA were conducted. Results: After foot reflexology, the subjects in the experimental group showed significant improvement in ADL. They also had less physical, psychological, and neurosensory fatigue, which are three areas of fatigue. Conclusion: The results suggest that foot reflexology is an effective intervention that helps the body work efficiently, eases stress and strain, and enhances the homeostasis of the body through stimulating the reflex zone of internal organs in the body. Therefore, it is necessary to develop foot reflexology as an unique nursing intervention.

Jeon, Eun-Young ;
The Korean Journal of Rehabilitation Nursing, volume 8, issue 2, 2005, Pages 149~156
Purpose: The purpose of this study was to analyze functional independence and need for home nursing care in stroke patients. Method: This was a descriptive study. The subjects comprised 117 stroke patients who were supposed to discharge in less than a week. The instruments used for this study were the functional independence measure(FIM) and the need assessment for home nursing care of stroke patients. The data were analyzed using frequency, mean, t-test, ANOVA, and Pearson correlation coefficient. Results: Pearson correlation analysis revealed that there were negative correlations between subcategories of the FIM and the need for home nursing care in stroke patients. Especially, in case of the subjects who recorded lower scores at self-care they showed higher needs for home nursing care in the domain of physical problem and rehabilitation. Conclusion: For the operation of the home nursing care, the protocol for home nursing care is needed to the stroke patients living at home. The FIM instrument is recommended as a useful scale in order to assess the disability for the stroke patients and the need for home nursing care because this one has correlation with the scale of need for home nursing care.
