Abstract:
This descriptive correlational study investigated the relationships between sleep and depression before and after hemodialysis in patients on chronic hemodialysis. Thirty-nine adult patients were tested using the Beck Depression Inventory and the Visual Analog Sleep Scale before and after the first dialysis of the week. Results of testing indicated no significant differences between the quality of sleep before and after hemodialysis treatments. Depression was shown to be present on a mild-moderate level both before and after hemodialysis. Comparison of this study group with other groups tested using the Visual Analog Sleep Scale revealed that this group reports sleep comparable to insomniacs and hospitalized adults. The study has shown that sleep of the chronic hemodialysis patient is not perceived by the individuals to be normal.
