Wstęp. Opóźnienie jest przyczyną niepowodzenia w leczeniu pacjentów z ostrymi zespołami wieńcowymi (Acute Coronary Syndrome – ACS). Opóźnienie występuje, ponieważ pacjenci i członkowie ich rodzin nie znają objawów wystąpienia ostrego zespołu wieńcowego. Cel pracy. Celem badania było odkrycie sposobu postrzegania pacjentów i członków ich rodzin w rozpoznawaniu objawów ACS na miejscu zdarzenia. Materiał i metody. Badanie to ma charakter jakościowy i zawiera opisową fenomenologię, która została przeprowadzona na podstawie dogłębnych wywiadów z udziałem szesnastu uczestników (w tym pacjentów z ACS i członków ich rodzin). Analizę danych przeprowadzono metodą triangulacji źródeł danych. Wyniki. Uzyskane dane wskazują na błędy występujące w rozpoznawaniu objawów choroby. Zjawisko to powstaje w wyniku niezrozumienia objawów i błędnego postrzegania objawów innych chorób, które występowały wcześniej, jak astmy oskrzelowej, odleżyn i udaru mózgu. Wnioski. Uczestnicy badania nie są świadomi występowania objawów ostrego zespołu wieńcowego, co powoduje opóźnienia w odnalezieniu odpowiedniej pomocy od pracowników lub jednostek ochrony zdrowia. Wyniki wskazują na znaczenie edukacji publicznej w zakresie różnych objawów ACS oraz na temat tego, w jaki sposób odróżnić je od podobnych objawów innych chorób, ale także potencjalnych zagrożeń wynikających z opóźnień, jeśli odpowiednie leczenie nie jest udzielone natychmiastowo.

Background. A delay is a cause of management failure in patients with Acute Coronary Syndromes (ACS). A delay occurs because the patients and family members do not know the symptoms of ACS Objectives. The aim of the study was to explore the perception of patients and family members in recognizing the symptoms of Acute Coronary Syndrome (ACS) attack at the scene. Material and methods. This study is a qualitative with a descriptive phenomenology that was done through in-depth interviews involving sixteen participants (including, patients with ACS and family members). Data analysis was done by triangulation of data sources. Results. The theme obtained is a mistake in recognizing the symptoms of the disease. This theme is formed from the subtheme of misunderstanding of symptoms and sees the symptoms of other diseases one previously suffered from such as asthma, ulcer, and stroke. Conclusions. Participants are unaware of the incidence of ACS attacks that result in delays in finding appropriate assistance to health workers or facilities. The results show the importance of public education about the various symptoms of ACS, and on how to distinguish it from similar symptoms of other diseases, potential threats, and the impact if appropriate treatment is not immediately given.
