Cardioprotective effect of cluster nursing combined with atorvastatin calcium on patients with end-stage chronic kidney disease during peritoneal dialysis. The incidence of cardiovascular disease in the observation group (13.34%) was lower than that in the control group (36.67%), and the difference was statistically significant (P<0.05). The length of stay in the observation group was significantly shorter than that in the control group (P<0.05). The scores of SF-36 in each dimension of the group were significantly higher than those of the control group (P <0.05); the scores of the material life, social function, psychological function, and physical function of the observation group were higher than those of the control group, and the differences were statistically significant ( P<0.05). CONCLUSION: Cluster nursing intervention can effectively shorten the length of stay, reduce the cost of hospitalization, and improve the quality of life of hospitalized patients undergoing peritoneal dialysis. The use of atorvastatin calcium in the treatment of end-stage chronic kidney disease can reduce the incidence of cardiovascular disease to a certain extent, and is beneficial to protecting the cardiovascular function of patients. The combination of the two is worth promoting for clinical use.
