Abstract [en]

Study Design

Qualitative descriptive.

Introduction

Cold sensitivity is a common and persistent complaint after hand injuries.

Purpose of the Study

To explore the experiences of severe cold sensitivity, its consequences for daily life, and the strategies for enduring and enabling occupation.

Methods

Fifteen hand-injured patients with abnormal cold sensitivity were interviewed. The transcribed text was analyzed using manifest and latent content analysis. Experiences of triggering factors, symptoms, and relieving strategies were described.

Results

The consequences and adaptation in daily life entailed a change in life roles, a struggle to maintain self-image and changed occupational performance and/or occupational patterns.

Conclusions

Our findings highlight the importance of a holistic approach, including a screening of patients' occupational roles and patterns as well as psychosocial needs, to obtain the information needed to support patients with severe cold sensitivity to achieve a sense of control and self-mastery.
