FREZ, Carolina Soraggi  e  CASTRO, Emma Elisa Carneiro de. Experiences of cardiopaths submitted to cardiac surgery: an exploratory study. Rev. abordagem gestalt. [online]. 2020, vol.26, n.3, pp. 279-291. ISSN 1809-6867.

This paper aims to investigate and describe significations of the experience of cardiopaths who were submitted to cardiac surgery, using the Gestalt-therapy as theoretical basis. The sample was composed by five post surgical pacientes, one woman and four men, ageing between 52 and 65 years old, married, self-declared white and brown, with scholarly between fundamental and medium levels. After the semiestructered intervieweds were done, the data was analysed through the tematic content analysis. The results of this study expose that the main significations related to the cardiac surgery refer to the threat to surviving, lost of control over yourself, lost of authonomy and independence. The surgical process demands a constant work of the pacient orientation system in order to exist the maintenance of the homeostasis in the organism, existing a diversity of individual regulatory reactions which contributes for the restauration of the balance of the environment in which they are located.
