Effect of Training Rhythmic Breathing on the Blood Pressure of Hypertensive Patients


Introduction: Hypertension increases under vehement excitement and stress. Rhythmic breathing is a way of controlling the stress. Hence, this study was carried out to determine the effect of training rhythmic breathing on the blood pressure of hypertensive patients.

Methods: The present research is a post- and pre-semi experimental study. The research community includes all hypertensive patients higher than 140/90 mm at Zabol Amir Al- Momenin Hospital, Zabol, Iran. The sample size consists of 32 people who selected by means of available sampling. Data analysis was done on SPSS® and by means of paired sample T-test, independent T-test and Pearson correlation coefficient.

Findings: The results show that average systolic pressure before intervention was 154.84 ± 39 and after intervention was 131.87 ± 18.65 in that there was a significant statistical difference between the post intervention and pre-intervention (P<0.05). the average diastolic pressure before intervention was 94.33 ± 9.61 and after intervention was 70.13 ± 64.34 in which there was not a significant difference between the post intervention and the pre-intervention (p>0.0.5). In other words, there is a positive and significant relationship between the training rhythmic breathing and the blood pressure of hypertensive patients.

Conclusion: According to the results, it can be stated that the level of blood pressure can be contorted by training rhythmic breathing among hypertensive patients.
