The Effect of Recommended Recitals on Blood Pressure and Pulse Rate in Patients Admitted to the Cardiac Care Unit

Hospitalization in intensive care units causes anxiety and hemodynamic changes in patients. Nowadays, citation therapy as one of the therapeutic methods in complementary medicine plays an important role in reducing the anxiety and stability of hemodynamic changes.


This study was conducted to investigate the effect of recommended recitals on blood pressure and pulse rate of patients admitted to the cardiac care unit (CCU).


This quasi-experimental study was performed on 60 patients admitted to the cardiac care unit in the two groups containing 30 controls and 30 test patients. At least 4 times a day and every time 100 times the mention of “There is no power but from God” and 7 times Hamad Surah was repeated. The average blood pressure and pulse rate in the two groups were recorded before and after the intervention by a digital barometric device attached to the patient. The data were analyzed by SPSS V. 16 software by independent t-test.


There was no significant difference in terms of blood pressure in the control group before and after the intervention (P = 0.25). But after the intervention, there was a significant difference (P = 0.006). There was no significant difference in the pulse rate before and after the intervention in the control and test groups (P = 0.023). Moreover, there was no significant difference between the two groups after the intervention (P = 0.55).


The results showed that spiritual care such as curative therapy as a non-pharmacological and non-invasive method plays a significant role in the improvement and stability of hemodynamic changes such as blood pressure and pulse rate. Therefore, these non-prescriptive methods can be used as complementary therapies.
