Abstract

Background: Hypertension is often called a silent killer. It can cause disorders in the heart, kidney, brain and other vital organs. One of the methods to lower blood pressure is by performing meditation. Catecolamine hormones produced during meditation can make individual feels relaxed. Hence, heart beats slower. Objective: To identify the effect of meditation to the decrease of systolic blood preassure in the middle-aged elderly. Methods:This study was a quasi-experiment with two groups pre- and post-test design. Study was carried out in November 2013 at the village of Sukorejo, Sambirejo, Ngawen, Gunungkidul, Yogyakarta. Respondents of the study consisted of 30 respondents aged 45-59 years old. They were taken through a total sampling technique. Mann-Whitney U Test was employed to analyze the data. Results: The Mann-Whitney U Test showed that the average decrease of systolic blood pressure in the control group was 0,20 and was 14.72 in the intervention group (p<0.05). There was a significant decrease of blood pressure between initial and final assessments in the subject with intervention. Conclusion: There was a significant effect of meditation to the decrease of systolicblood pressure in the middle-aged elderly population. Keywords: Hypertension, Meditation, Middle-Aged Elderly

Abstract

Background: Oxygen supply deficit will result in hypoxemia, brain damage, and can threaten a person's life. Data from Panembahan Senopati regional public hospital in Bantul showed that 433 (20.5%) patients with impaired oxygenation obtained oxygen therapy through nasal cannulae. Oxygen therapy with nasal cannulae which administered accurately is expected to maintain the oxygen demand in body tissues, so the oxygen saturation remains within a normal range. Objective: This research aimed to investigate the correlation between the accuracy of installing the oxygenation tools using nasal cannulae and the changes in the oxygen saturation in patients with impaired oxygenation. Methods: This research used a descriptive analytic method with a cross-sectional approach. The sampling technique used was total sampling with 34 samples. Data were collected with a checklist. The analysis technique used Spearman's Rho. Results: The accuracy of installing the oxygenation tool using nasal cannulae was mostly categorized as accurate (52%). The average change in oxygen saturation in patients with impaired oxygenation was 2.86%. The correlation between the accuracy of installing the oxygenation tool using nasal cannulae and changes in the oxygen saturation in patients with impaired oxygenation was significant (p=0.016). Conclusion: There was a significant correlation between the accuracy of installing oxygenation tool using nasal cannulae and the oxygen saturation changes in patients with impaired oxygenation.
