Abstract

This randomized experimental study was conducted to determine the effect of foot massage on peripheral edema and sleep quality in patients with heart failure. The study sample comprised 60 adult patients (30 intervention and 30 control groups) who met the inclusion criteria and agreed to participate in the study. In the intervention group, foot massage was applied once a day for 10 minutes on each foot for a total of 7 days and then peripheral edema and sleep quality were evaluated. No application was made to the control group. Data were collected using a personal information form, a foot measurement record form for monitoring peripheral edema, and the Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index. Forms were completed at the beginning of administration and at the follow-up at the end of 7 days (baseline and last follow-up). Statistically significant improvements were found in peripheral edema and sleep quality levels of the intervention group compared with the control group, starting from the fourth session of the foot massage application (P < .001).
