Background & objective Poor sleep quality is common among patients with diabetes. It has destructive effects on physical and mental health as well as quality of life. This study was conducted with the aim of investigating the sleep quality of patients with myocardial infarction in two diabetic and non-diabetic groups.
Subjects and MethodsThis descriptive and analytical study was conducted in 1402. 282 patients with myocardial infarction were included in the study as available. The data collection tool was a demographic information and standard sleep quality questionnaire. The data was analyzed in SPSS version 26 using descriptive and analytical statistics. The significance level of the tests in this study was evaluated with P<0.05.
Results:The mean and standard deviation of age in diabetic group patients was 58.19±10.02. The type of myocardial infarction (p=0.3) and the level of education (p=0.2) were not significantly different between the two groups. The results of the Mann-Whitney test showed that the subjective sleep quality, sleep latency, daytime dysfunction, and the overall sleep score in the two diabetic and non-diabetic groups had statistically significant differences (p-value <0.05).
Conclusion: The results of this study showed that the subjective sleep quality, sleep latency, daytime dysfunction and overall sleep score of patients with myocardial infarction were different in diabetic and non-diabetic groups. Therefore, it is recommended to create appropriate strategies to improve the treatment of these patients and effective training on improving their sleep quality
