It aimed to discuss the adoption of nanoparticle micro-infusion valves in the totally implantable venous access port (TIVAP) of tumor patients and analyze the self-care of patients after surgery. A total of 189 tumor patients who received TIVAP chemotherapy were selected from the day chemotherapy outpatient department of the Second People's Hospital of Lianyungang City from June to October 2021. The questionnaire survey was conducted to collect and analyze the general information about the patients and the patient’s self-care ability. All the surveys and analyses were performed using a general information questionnaire, self-care competence scale, self-management efficacy scale, social support scale, and self-rating anxiety scale. Moreover, the nanoparticle micro-infusion valve was prepared, and its characterization, in vitro drug release, and cytotoxicity were studied. The self-management ability of patients was concentrated in the middle and high levels. Marital status, education level, and economic status all had a great impact on the patient’s self-care ability. The infusion of dithiothreitol (DTT) increased the drug release of the nanoparticle micro-infusion valve. When pH=5.0, the drug-loaded nanoparticle micro-infusion valve release amount was greater than when pH=7.4. When pH=5.0 and pH=7.4, the cell survival rates under the drug-loaded nanoparticle micro-infusion valve were both lower than that without drug loading. Nanoparticle micro-infusion valves can specifically identify tumor cells, and have good adoption prospects in TIVAP implantation in tumor patients. Gender, marital status, education level, etc. all affected the self-care ability of patients.
