1. Five predictors, age, self-care knowledge, arrhythmias perception, duration of pacemaker implantation, and frequency of PPM, explained 48.7% of the variance in self-care ability. 2.The older the pacemaker patients, the less self-care ability they had. We suggest that clinical nurses should provide proper teaching of pacemaker care before patients discharge.
