Objective: To evaluate the application of prospective nursing intervention in elderly patients undergoing gastrointestinal endoscopes. Methods: We invested 84 patients to join our study who undergoing gastrointestinal endoscopes. The participant’s age was higher than 60 years. The time of receiving gastrointestinal endoscopes is from March 2017 to September 2019. The control group participants receive traditional nursing model. In another group, the intervention group patients receive prospective nursing intervention, we provide suitable preventive nursing measures to the participants. Additionally, we use interview and questionnaires to collect the data from participants, the data include patient characteristics information, incidence of complications and inspection time of gastrointestinal endoscopes. Result: The data of Drop in blood pressure, Intestinal bloating and Abdominal pain is Statistical significance. The relative complications cases of intervention group were less than that of control group in overall [1 (2.4%) vs 4 (9.5%), 1 (2.4%) vs 3 (7.1%), 2 (4.8%) vs 5 (11.9%)]. In inspection time of gastrointestinal endoscopes, intervention group participants have better performance than that of control group, the intervention group has shorter Gastroscopy time and Colonoscopy time (15.62±1.56 vs 17.41±1.42, 24.89±2.77 vs 27.01±2.63). The data between the intervention group and control group is statistical significance. Conclusion: the prospective nursing intervention has strong influence to improve patient complications situation and reducing inspection time of gastrointestinal endoscopes.
