The Effectiveness of Progressive Muscle Relaxation with Benson Relaxation on the Sleep Quality in Hemodialysis Patients
Objects:To identify effectiveness of progressive muscle with benson relaxations on the sleep quality in hemodialysis patients.
Method:The study used a quasi-experimental with comparison of pre and post-tests without control groups. The samples were selected by consecutive sampling technique based on criteria inclusion. The sample size was 48 patients. Sleep quality was measured by applying Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index. Data analysis used Wilcoxon signed rank and Mann-Whitney U test.
Results:the result showed that there was effect of muscle relaxation with benson relaxation on the sleep quality in hemodialysis patients with p-value 0.00 (p<0.005).
Conclusion:The intervention of progressive muscle relaxation and benson relaxation have same effectiveness to improve the sleep quality of the hemodialysis patients with sleep disorders so that nurse should apply this intervention to improve the sleep quality patients with hemodialysis.
