(April 16, 2020) Brittany D. Rhoades, Jennifer E. Sanner Beauchamp, PhD, RN; Joan C. Engebretson, DrPH, AHN-BC, RN; and Diane Wind Wardell, PhD, WHNP-BC. Influencing Factors on Left Ventricular Assist Device Adaptation: A Systematic Review. Heart Lung (March 30, 2020) doi: 10.1016/j.hrtlng.2020.01.015.

Highlights:

  • The systematic review identified and assessed factors influencing LVAD adaptation.
  • Roy's adaptation model (RAM) is useful to organize the factors associated with LVAD adaptation.
  • The physiological-physical mode is the most researched influencing factor of LVAD adaptation.
  • The systematic review identified the need for additional research studies in each area of RAM.
