Background: Chronic kidney disease, a growing concern worldwide, is characterized by irreversible nephron destruction. Although hemodialysis alleviates some CKD complications, pulmonary dysfunction is a common complication that causes serious problems in hemodialysis patients. Therefore, this study was designed to determine the effectiveness of respiratory exercise on respiratory function in hemodialysis patients.
1.Assess the pretest level of pulmonary function in hemodialysis patients.
2.Evaluation of the effect of respiratory exercise on respiratory function.
3.Comparison of pretest and posttest levels of respiratory exercise for respiratory function in patients undergoing hemodialysis.
4.To find the relationship between posttest respiratory exercise level and respiratory function in hemodialysis patients.
Methodology: Quasi-experimental design using purposive sampling techniques. A total of 30 samples were selected based on inclusion criteria. A quasi-experimental pre- and post-trial design including a control group was chosen to analyze the efficacy of respiratory training in patients with chronic renal failure in hemodialysis patients with SMCH. Respiratory parameters were assessed pre-exercise and 20 min of interventional breathing exercise was administered after respiratory parameters were assessed.
Result: Most of them he was 20-30 year old group, but 66.6% were Hindu, 76.7% went to primary school and most of them were coolie workers. During the posttest, 18 (60%) of the dialysis patients had moderate difficulty and 12 (40%) had mild difficulty. The pretest mean was 21.53 with a standard deviation of 5.34 and the posttest mean for dyspnea was 17.83 with a standard deviation of 3.96. The calculated paired’t’ test value of t=3.022 was found to be statistically significant at p<1. 0.01 level found.
Conclusion: The results of the study breathing exercises are effective in reducing dyspnea in patients undergoing hemodialysis.
