Abstract

Objective: To assess the effect of progressive muscle relaxation (PMR) on fatigue and sleep quality ofpatients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) stages 3 and 4.Materials and methods: The pretest posttest clinical trial recruited 91 patients COPD grades 3 and 4.Following random assignment of subjects, the treatment group (n ¼ 45) performed PMR for eight weeksand the control group (n ¼ 46) received routine cares. At baseline and after the intervention, fatigue andsleep quality was assessed. Data obtained were analyzed in SPSS.Results: It was determined that PMR decreased patients' fatigue level and improved some sleep qualitysubscales including subjective sleep quality, sleep latency, sleep duration and habitual sleep efficiency,but no improvement was found in global sleep quality and other sleep subscales.Conclusion: An eight-week home-based PMR program can be effective in reducing fatigue and improvingcertain subscales of sleep quality in patients with COPD stages 3,4.
