While this study used participants from a general surgical floor, its merit should be translatable to the cardiovascular surgical patient population. Additionally, Thorup et al. (2016) proved a positive correlation between the amount of time a step counting device was worn and the distance walked by patients.
It is no surprise that the importance of activity level and ambulation goals are stressed as much, if not more, to cardiac surgery patients versus other surgical patients. In order to be released from the hospital, a cardiac surgery patient must meet and exceed a certain walking distance. Because of this, much of the post-operative teaching is related to the importance of ambulating, setting distance goals, and defining a walking plan to adhere to during the hospital stay and after discharge.
Early and sustained mobility in the post cardiovascular surgical patient can positively impact patient outcomes. In order to drive these outcomes, patient ownership, motivation and self-accountability beyond the walls of the hospital must be achieved.
This study will use best practice guidelines, the relationship-based care model, and innovative technology to determine if using wearable activity monitors impacts: (1) intrinsic motivation, (2) time of return to pre-operative mobility levels, (3) LOS and readmission rates, and (4) overall fitness level.
The aim of this study is to determine if use of a wearable activity monitor will motivate post cardiovascular surgical patients to increase activity levels over a 12 week period, to determine the wearable activity monitor's ability to influence return to pre-surgical self-reported mobility level, to determine if using a wearable activity monitor will increase 6 minute walk test(6MWT) distance comparing pre-discharge 6MWT and 3 month post 6MWT, to determine amicability of a wearable activity monitor as an intervention strategy in post cardiovascular surgical patients, to determine if use of a wearable activity monitor as a post-operative intervention will impact patient length of stay and/or readmission.

Cardiovascular surgical patients
Patients who received cardiovascular surgery and was released from the hospital due to meeting and exceeding a certain walking distance.
Behavioral: quasi-experimental Pre-test/Post-test design
surveys to document progress
- intrinsic motivation [ Time Frame: over a period of 12 months ]refers to behavior that is driven by internal rewards. In other words, the motivation to engage in a behavior arises from within the individual because it is naturally satisfying.
- time of return to pre-operative mobility levels [ Time Frame: over a period of 12 months ]time of return to pre-operative mobility levels
- LOS [ Time Frame: over a period of 12 months ]LENGTH OF STAY
- readmission rates [ Time Frame: over a period of 12 months ]readmission rates
- overall fitness level [ Time Frame: over a period of 12 months ]FITNESS LEVEL
