Background and Aim: The prevalence and incidence of coronary artery disease is seriously affected by the unhealthy lifestyle of people. The aim of the current study was to determine the effect of progressive muscle relaxation on the four dimensions of lifestyle in patients undergoing coronary artery bypass graft surgery.
Methods: In current randomized, triple blind clinical trial, 80 patients with coronary artery bypass graft surgery were randomly divided into two intervention (40 patients) and control (40 patients) groups. In the intervention group, the patients were trained and performed the progressive muscle relaxation technique, but the control group did not receive any intervention. Data collection was done by the demographic form, self-report checklist for performing of progressive muscle relaxation technique and the lifestyle questionnaire in four dimensions of nutrition (11 questions), sleep (10), physical activity (5 questions), and Tobacco (3 questions). At the end, the data were compared between the two intervention and control groups.
Results: The age (P=0.66), gender (P=0.664), marital status (P=0.643), occupation (P=746), BMI (P=728), and family members P=0.760) had no significant differences in the intervention and control groups. Covariance analysis showed a significant difference between two intervention and control groups (p<0.05) for all four dimensions of lifestyle including nutrition, sleep, physical activity and smoking along with overall lifestyle score. ANOVA with repeated measures for each of the four dimensions of lifestyle with overall lifestyle score for comparing the interaction between time and group showed a significant difference between the two intervention and control groups (P<0.05)
Conclusion: The implementation of progressive muscle relaxation technique significantly improved the four dimensions of lifestyle including nutrition, sleep, physical activity and tobacco in the intervention group compared to the control group.
