Abstract

Background: While sleeping is among the basic and physiological needs of the human, sleep disorder is a common problem in patients with end stage kidney disease. The aim of
this study was to determine the effect of progressive muscle relaxation technique on the quality of sleep in hemodialysis patients.
Methods: In this randomized clinical trial, the effect of progressive muscle relaxation technique on the quality of sleep in 100 hemodialysis patients of Kermanshah Imam Reza Hospital was investigated. There were an experimental and a control group. Employing Pittsburgh Sleep Quality questionnaire the study was conducted in 2011. The data analysis was performed using software SPSS 16.
Results: In this study, no significant differences were observed )P=0.15( in the experimental and control group for their mean change in sleep quality before and
after relaxation. However, no significant differences were observed in the case group (P=0.005) for the sleep quality scores before and after intervention.
Conclusion: Although relaxation improved sleep quality in patients, it failed to reach to its full potentiality. And, it approved the disrupted sleep quality in patients and failure to control some of the influential factors.
