Abstract

Influence of Breathing Exercise Education Applied on Patients with Heart Failure on Dyspnoea and Quality of Sleep: A Randomized Controlled Study

Author(s): Oz Alkan H, Uysal H, Enç N and Yigit Z

The research has been conducted experimentally in randomized controlled way on total 56 patients for determining influences of breathing exercise education on dyspnoea level and quality of sleep on patients with heart failure. Methods: Basal Dyspnoea Index (BDI) and Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index (PSQI) were applied to patients in experiment (breathing exercise training was given) and control group in the study at the first visit and at the end of twelve weeks. Results: While there isn’t any difference between experiment and control group for dyspnoea level and sleep quality before training, it has been determined that dyspnoea level was lower in the group having breathing exercises at the end of 12th week (p<0.001). While improvements were observed in sleep quality both in experiment (p<0.001) and control group (p<0.039) at the end of 12th week, it has been seen that improving of sleep quality in experiment group was much better.
