The unpaired “t” test to assess the effectiveness of progressivemusclerelaxationtechnique on post test level of pain among mothers undergone the caesarean section on 1 st day the “t” value is 9.2 and p value is p < 0.000. Comparatively on the 3 rd day the “t” value is 11.3 and p value is p < 0.000. Hence it is interpreted the p value is highly significant and the progressivemusclerelaxationtechnique was more effective.
Background and Objective:Organ fracture is a prevalent effect of traumas experienced by human. Patients with fracture need orthopedic cares including orthopedic surgeries. The process of surgery increases the incidence of mental and psychological reactions, such as anxiety. Therefore, adopting progressivemusclerelaxationtechnique in such patients is of high importance.
adopted for this study. Two old age homes were selected, Inba Illam for experimental group and Christian Seva Sangh old age home for control group. The elderly people were selected on the basis of inclusion criteria. Informed consent was obtained from the elderly people prior to the data collection procedure after explaining the nature and purpose of the study. Purposive sampling was used for this study. A total of 60 samples, 30 in the experimental group and 30 in the control group were selected. Insomnia screening tool used to screen sleep problems among the elderly. Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index scale was used to measure the subjective sleep quality and Epworth Daytime Sleepiness Scale was used to measure daytime sleepiness of elderly. Approximately 20 minutes was taken to do the complete assessment of each individual. In the 1 st week of data collection, pretest was done for the first two days. The elderly with sleep problems were selected for the intervention. After pretest assessment progressivemusclerelaxationtechnique was demonstrated through video presentation for the male elderly person and female elderly person separately. Followed by this the procedure was demonstrated to each individual separately. The researcher developed a good rapport with the elderly people. The elderly in the experimental were instructed and motivated to do PMRT twice a day, once in the morning and evening for 15 days. It took an average of 30 to 45 minutes for each session.
Pilot study was conducted for a period of two weeks in Dharani textiles at Vadamadurai. The investigator obtained written permission from the manager prior to the study. The researcher introduced about the study to the workers and established rapport with them and demographic variables were collected. 10 workers were selected by using stratified random sampling technique that satisfies the inclusion criteria. The level of stress was assessed by using structured interview schedule using rating scale. Immediately after pretest video assisted teaching programme on progressivemusclerelaxationtechnique was given in the form of group teaching in a common place by using laptop for 30 minutes. The effectiveness was assessed on 15th day by using same interview schedule.
Journal of Shakuleord University of Medical Sciences, (2009), study published that the effect of progressivemusclerelaxation on anxiety of patient undergoing coronary heart angiography patients were selected hospital in Tehran. ProgressiveMuscleRelaxation Techniques were prepared on compact disc and were delivered to the patient. Demographic characteristics of patients showed a significant statistical relationship between educational status, economic status and occupational status and history of admission to hospital with anxiety agents (p < 0.05). Results of this study demonstrate a positive effect of progressivemusclerelaxationtechnique on reducing anxiety in patients undergoing coronary heart angiography.
Data pertaining to the demographic variables were collected by questionnaire method. The investigator assessed the level of quality of sleep by using Groningen sleep quality scale and scored. For experimental group, each week the investigator selected 10 patients with breast cancer and gathered them in a common place. Pretest was carried out them the investigator and demonstrated progressivemusclerelaxationtechnique on first day itself. The samples were instructed to follow the same techniques for 30 minutes of every night continuously for 7 days under the supervision of investigator. On the 8th day post test was done. Same procedure was carried out for 3 weeks. For control group, pretest was done on first day but no intervention was given on 8th day post test was carried out with same. Data collection was analyzed by using both descriptive and inferential statistics.
relaxation training. Seventy two adult elective abdominal surgery patients were randomly assigned to treatment groups. Subjects in both groups were visited on the evening of surgery. Experimental subjects were taught a progressivemusclerelaxationtechnique. Equal time was spent with control subjects. Following surgery all subjects were observed during ambulation. Vital signs were measured pre and post operatively as were self reports of pain sensation and distress. The results showed that distress caused by painful sensations was significantly lower for experimental subjects ( F.1,53=4-69, p = 0.03). Vital signs, analgesic consumption and self reported pain sensation were not altered by relaxation training. Additional analysis by type of surgery (cholecystectomy and hysterectomy) showed hysterectomy subjects reported less pain sensation and distress and used less analgesic than cholecystectomy subjects.
investigate the effect of applying progressivemusclerelaxationtechnique on job stress and quality research was to investigate the effect of applying progressivemusclerelaxationtechnique on job stress and quality of working life in nurses. Sampling included 30 nurses in experimental group and 30 in control group using multi stage cluster sampling method. Data were collected by Reiss questionnaire of job stress and Mirepasi questionnaire of quality of working life. The research design was pre test post test with a control group. Data were analyzed through multivariate analysis of co ± variance. there is a significant difference between nurses in control and experiment group. (p<0.0001 and F=123.17) the rating of difference of effectiveness is 0.90, i.e. 90 percent of personal differences in scores of post-test (occupational stress and working life quality) is the effect of applying progressivemusclerelaxationtechnique. Moreover it was shown in table 3 that with a control pre-test between nurses of experiment group and control group regarding occupational stress (F=120.94 and p<0.0001) and quality of working life (F=115/93, p<0.0001) a significant difference exists. The results showed that applying progressivemusclerelaxationtechnique reduces job stress and increase the quality of working life of nurses.
Pre-experimental design (one group pre-test - post-test) was used in this study to determine the effectiveness of progressivemusclerelaxationtechnique on stress, anxiety and depression in infertile women. The study was conducted in Sudha Infertility Center, Erode. The sample size was 40 and the samples were selected by non probability convenience sampling technique. Structured interview schedule was used to collect the data. The collected data were analyzed using descriptive and inferential statistics. To test the hypothesis, paired ‘t’ test and chi-square were used.
while in control group the total anticipatory vomiting experience mean was (0.47+1.22).The frequency of acute vomiting in acupressure group's children was significantly decreased among children in acupressure group compared to PMRT group and control group where (F =6.174, P =0.003). While children in PMRT groups and acupressure group significantly experienced a less frequent delayed vomiting that occurred during the first day after chemotherapy administration compared to control group where ( F= 10.081, P= 0.001). Table (5) showed a comparison of the relaxation state of the studied children before and after progressive muscles relaxation session. It was observed that before the relaxation session, (80%, 60%) of children felt generally tension throughout their bodies. Then the percentage was reduced to (53.3%, 46.7%) after performing progressivemusclerelaxationtechnique among the studied children within the first two days of intervention respectively. A statistically significant difference was found before and after the intervention where (z = 2.828, p =0.005). The difference was statistically significant before and after the relaxation sessions from third and fourth days where (z =3.464, p=0.001) and (z=2.828, p =0.005) respectively. The same results were observed during the fifth,
Cancer is the second most serious health problem and the second leading cause of death in human. The cancer patient undergoing treatment experiences Physical and Psychological problem. The physical problems, like hair loss, nausea and vomiting and initial diagnostic phase can be very stressful. The cancer patient undergoing treatment experiences a psychological distress including anger, anxiety, sadness, fear, stress, feeling out of control, feelings of depression, impairment of rs, mental and cognitive reservation and psychiatric disorders. In India the cancer patient undergoing treatment were having the depressive disorders 4.5%, anxiety disorders 3%, stress disorder 4% in total population. ProgressiveMuscleRelaxationTechnique is help to reduce the stress, anxiety and depression among cancer patient to promote general wellbeing. A study to assess Effectiveness of ProgressiveMuscleRelaxationTechnique on Stress, Anxiety and Depression Treatment in Puducherry Cancer Trust Hospital and Research The Research design chosen for this study was Quasi – Experimental Design . The study conducted in selected Hospital at Puducherry. e population includes the patient undergoing cancer treatment are taken as population and out of that 60 patients were selected for this study. The sampling technique used for this study is Simple nd Percentage distribution are used to test level of stress, anxiety and depression among patients, Wilcoxon ProgressiveMuscleRelaxationTechnique , Anxiety and Depression among patients and Chi-square test to associate the level of Stress, Anxiety and Depression with the selected demographic variables of Patient Undergoing Cancer License, which permits unrestricted use,
ABSTRACT; Cancer is a life threatening health problem in India and World wide. Thou cancer is curable in early stages, owing to late diagnosis and inappropriate management, cancer cases increase the high mortality rate. Even though ,Chemotherapy is one of the best treatment for cancer, it gives many side effects and discomforts for patients who receives chemotherapy.Hence the Investigator done the study on reducing the levels of anxiety,nausea and vomiting by administering progressivemusclerelaxation techniques.
The purpose of the present study was to investigate the effects of Autogenic training and Progressivemusclerelaxationtechnique on the mental skills of female subjects. We recruited 60 female subjects and assigned them into three groups i.e. AT group, PMR group and control group. The first and second groups were provided with 8-week Autogenic training and PMR interventions respectively, whereas the control group continued their general routine. All three groups were tested pre and post interventions for their mental skills by using Hardy and Nelson mental skills questionnaire. Hypotheses were tested by applying ANCOVA to the collected data at 0.05 significance level. Results revealed that only concentration ability was significantly improved with Autogenic training and PMR, whereas no significant differences were observed for other variables.
From the present study it was found that, even though a good number of students had normal emotional states, most of the students’ experienced negative emotional states of depression, anxiety and stress categorized as mild, moderate, severe and extremely severe levels. The study suggests the potential benefits of progressivemusclerelaxation training in reducing negative emotional states of depression, anxiety and stress among undergraduate nursing students. Progressivemusclerelaxationtechnique is very effective in reducing depression, anxiety and stress among nursing students. After intervention most of the participants felt relaxed and reduced the severity of negative emotional states and returned to the normal state of emotion. When progressivemusclerelaxation is practiced and incorporated into student’s daily routine, it would definitely help them to alleviate negative emotional states and better cope up with the daily hassles of academic life.
Hypertension means persistent increase in both SBP and DBP. Breathing exercise controlled at 6 rate/min are known as slow breathing exercises .Jacobson’s progressivemusclerelaxationtechnique is a relaxationtechnique in which a person first tenses and releases major muscle of the body in a systematic order, usually beginning at the distal body parts and progressing proximally . To compare the effect of slow breathing exercise and Jacobson’s progressive muscular relaxation on HR ,RR and BP in patients with primary hypertension.
This decreased level of insomnia is because of progressivemusclerelaxation techniques. According to (Chen et al., 2009) said that progressiveMuscleRelaxation is very effective in reducing tension, overcoming insomnia and asthma. Insomnia is a state of inadequate sleep deprivation, both quality with sleep that is only brief or difficult to sleep (Hidayat, 2008). According to the assumption of researchers the effect of progressiveMuscleRelaxationtechnique is a very effective where the elderly can meet their sleep needs and reduce sleep disturbances. ProgressiveMuscleRelaxation is a nursing intervention to improve relaxation so that it can meet the quality of sleep needs for the elderly. Relaxation therapy is the cheapest easy therapy to do so that the elderly can do where and whenever to stretch muscle tension due to sleep disturbances and stress.
PRT is a technique of systematically tensing and releasing of muscles developed by Dr. Edmund Jacobson in the 1930s and described in his book progressiverelaxation. This technique is a musclerelaxationtechnique and can relax body within minutes. Progressiverelaxation is based on the fact that complete physical relaxation is the absence of muscle tension. METHODS
Thus, we could show a specific migraine-reducing ef- fect due to the elaborate acquisition of PMR relaxationtechnique which could not be inferred in such a distinct way from previous studies [17–21]. As shown in other studies, migraine frequency even decreased after com- pletion of the treatment . PMR was suggested to operate by enhancing self-efficacy . With every successful relaxation exercise migraine patients may develop growing confidence in their own coping abilities. It can be expected that for migraineurs, the feeling of be- ing able to control one’s own relaxation state is helpful in
to the individual child is clinically recommended [54,55], and consistent with previously published studies . Second, there is no evidence-based standard of care for this group of children, therefore we chose to control for the therapist's time and attention by teaching breathing exercises to our control group rather than use a wait list or other type of counseling setting. Third, it was impossible to blind the therapist to the treatment in this study. How- ever, consistent with previously published methodologic standards  all other members of the research team were blinded to the treatment group. Both groups were referred to as "relaxation techniques" and the research assistant recording the outcomes was blinded to the treat- ment group. Our study protocol does not allow us to determine if the observed therapeutic response was due to progressivemusclerelaxation, guided imagery, or both. However, guided imagery is generally considered a more powerful technique for pain syndromes and in clinical practice is most always preceded by progressivemusclerelaxation [32,36,57]. Fourth, the decrease in days with pain might partly be due to regression to the mean, how- ever this is not the case for missed activities or the primary outcome of being healed.
The body’s natural relaxation response is a powerful antidote to stress. Relaxation techniques such as deep breathing, visualization, progressivemusclerelaxation, meditation and yoga can help the individual activate this relaxation response. Practicing relaxation techniques help a person to maintain mental, physical, and emotional health by evoking relaxation response which is deeply relaxing and energizing. Its effects are an antidote to stress response. When the person is deeply relaxed the body may feel breathing is slow and deep, blood pressure is lowered, need for oxygen is reduced, muscular tensions and pains are relieved, heart rate gets slowed down, improves immune system. The technique is used effectively in the treatment of Anxiety, Insomnia, Irritable bowel syndrome, Depression, Mild phobia and stuttering, etc.
