OBJECTIVE This study was performed to evaluate the effectiveness of Benson's relaxation technique in the quality of sleep of hemodialysis patients. DESIGN It was a randomized controlled trial with a pre-post-test design. A total of 86 hemodialysis patients referring to hemodialysis units were assigned to either the intervention (receiving Benson's(More)
BACKGROUND Haemodialysis patients may suffer from pain and impairment of quality of life. Some complementary interventions, such as relaxation therapy, might affect the pain and quality of life. The present study aimed to identify the effectiveness of Benson's relaxation technique in relieving pain and improving the quality of life in haemodialysis(More)
BACKGROUND Although Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator (ICD) saves the life of patients with life-threatening ventricular dysrhythmias, it causes various challenges in their life span. Considering the increase in the number of ICD users, more knowledge is required regarding changes in the patients' life after device implantation. The aim of this study(More)
INTRODUCTION Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator (ICD) is a valuable treatment for the patients at risk of sudden cardiac death. In this method, after diagnosis of pathological cardiac rhythms, shock is automatically applied to normalize the rhythms. Shock is discharged when the patients are conscious, but the patients' experiences of shock have remained(More)
OBJECTIVE This study aimed to assess the effectiveness of Benson's relaxation technique in improving the hemodialysis patients' dietary and fluid adherence and biomedical markers. DESIGN This randomized controlled trial with a pre-post test design was conducted on 86 hemodialysis patients randomly divided into an intervention (receiving Benson's(More)
