Abstract

BACKGROUND: Adopting modern communication methods in traditional healthcare services is a trend of modern medicine. In this study we explored the value of telephone and WeChat in health education on uterine myoma by high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU).

MATERIAL AND METHODS: A total number of 426 patients diagnosed with symptomatic uterine myoma from April 2017 to September 2017 were selected and randomly divided into a routine preoperative education group (175 patients) and a telephone/WeChat preoperative health education group (251 patients). The patients in the routine preoperative education group received routine preoperative education, whereas those in the telephone/WeChat preoperative health education group received telephone/WeChat preoperative health education. Patients were evaluated before and after treatment.

RESULTS: Compared with the routine preoperative education group, the patients in telephone/WeChat preoperative health education group had less preoperative and postoperative anxiety, less postoperative pain, and higher treatment satisfaction (P<0.05).

CONCLUSIONS: Health education using telephone and WeChat preoperatively can reduce preoperative and postoperative anxiety, postoperative pain, and early postoperative inflammatory response in patients with uterine myoma, and can improve treatment satisfaction.
