Objective: To explore the application of health education in the nursing care of patients with metrorrhagia and metrostaxis after hysteroscopic electrotomy and the effect on the occurrence of disease complications.

Methods: Totally 70 patients admitted from March 2018 to March 2019 were randomly divided into two groups. The control group was given routine nursing, while the observation group was given comprehensive health education combined with routine nursing. The unhealthy emotions (anxiety and depression) of patients were assessed using Hamilton Depression Scale (HAMD) and Hamilton Anxiety Scale (HAMA). The incidence of complications, and surgical related matters were recorded and compared between two groups after nursing interventions.

Results: A lower HAMD score, A lower HAMA score, a shorter hospitalization time, a shorter operation time and a less intraoperative bleeding volume, a lower incidence rate of complications (massive bleeding and uterine perforation), and a higher degree of patients’ cooperation in surgery were shown in observation group compared with control group after nursing intervention (P all <0.05).

Conclusion: The application of health education in the nursing of metrorrhagia and metrostaxis patients can relieve the patients’ anxiety and depression, improve their understanding and mastery of relevant disease knowledge and their ability to cope with bleeding and their self-health care, as well as reduce the incidence of complications and the length of hospital stay and promote the rehabilitation of patients. Therefore, it is worthy of clinical application.
