심장 이식 수혜자의 삶에 대한 이론적 개요는 다음과 같다. 심장 이식 수혜자의 ‘덤으로서의 새로운 삶’ 은 수술 대기 기간동안의 극한적 고통, 수술 결정에 대한 심리적 갈등, 수술 결과에 대한 기대에 영향을 받는다. 뿐만 아니라 사회적 편견으로 마음의 상처를 받기도 한다. 이를 해결하기 위해 개인에 맞는 요령을 터득, 심리적 안정을 추구라는 작용/상호작용을 하게 되는데, 이 과정에서 기능 회복에 대한 만족감, 정상 생활 복귀에 대한 희망, 심장 공여자와의 동일화로 인한 혼돈, 신체적 예후에 대한 불안감, 변화된 부부관계에 대한 부담감, 사회 복귀에 대한 좌절감, 사회적 지지에 대한 고마움, 홀로서기를 위한 노력은 작용/상호작용이 어떠한 태도를 취하는지에 영향을 준다. 그 결과, 긍정적으로 인식을 전환과 현실에 안주하는 형태로 삶을 살아가게 된다<Figure 1>.
