Introduction: In addition to stroke predisposing factors, stressors due to stroke complications such as speech disorders, paresis and limb plague, and stress due to hospitalization, inability to perform daily activities cause physiological changes in stroke patients. Lifestyle and use of complementary medicine can control physiological parameters in these patients. In this study, the effect of Swedish massage on physiological parameters in stroke patients has been investigated.
Materials & Methods: This quasi-experimental study was performed on 45 ischemic stroke patients in ICU, internal medicine and neurology wards of Imam Reza and Shahid Fayyaz Bakhsh hospitals affiliated to the organization duri-ng 2019 and 2020.m Tehran Social Security was hospitalized. The subjects were mass-aged in the back for 15 minutes during three consecutive days for 15 to 17 hours, and the physiological parameters were ten minutes before the massage and ten minutes after the Swedish massage. Data collection in this research was demographic question-nnaire and physiological list, in order to analyze data from statistical tables, graphs, statistical indicators, tests such as tests tPa-irs of software SPSSUsed with version 2.
Ethics code: IR.IAU.PS.REC.1398.199
Findings: The results of statistical analysis showed that the mean systolic blood pressure on the first, second and third day ten minutes after the Swedish massage were equal (122.98± 15.61Mm of mercury, (118.24 ±15.29) MmHg (119.18±13.46) Mm Hg and mean diastolic blood pressure ten minutes of Swedish massage on three consecutive days, respecti-vely (66.60 ±10.35(Mm Hg)65.09 ± 10.63) Mm Hg (69.44 ±10.22) Mm of mercury).Statistical analysis showed that there was a significant difference between the data before and after massage.
between the data before and after massage The following results were obtained for the mean percentage of arterial blood oxygen concentration in three consecutive days after massage (95.93±1.91), (97.20±1.49) And (97.42 ±1.39) That there was a statis-tically significant difference in mean body temperature after three consecutive days of Swedish massage, respectively)37.19 ± 0.34) (37.80 ±5.41 And (37.16 ±0.38(Was not significantly different despite the decrease in the mean.
Discussion & Conclusions: The findings of the present study indicate the positive effect of Swedish massage on systolic and diastolic blood pressure, decrease in pulse rate and increase in arterial blood oxygen percentage in ischemic stroke patients, but according to the findings, the effect of intervention on body temperature was not noticeable.
