Abstract

One of hemodialisa complication is the increase of blood pressure. Some of research show that music
therapy can decrease blood pressure. The purpose is to know the influence of music therapy to the
decrease of blood pressure in post hemodialisa patients. Research design is quasy eksperiment design
non equivalent control group. Sampling technique is purposive sampling. The sample of the research
were 20 respondents (as control group, and experiment group). The data taken measurement of blood
pressure before and after music therapy. The analysis used are difference test and logistic regression.
The results show that there is difference sistolik of blood pressure on the experiment group and there
isn’t difference on the control group ((p = 0,001 < 0,05) , (p = 0,180 > 0,05)), there isn’t difference
diastolik of blood pressure on the experiment group and there isn’t difference on the control group ((p =
0,343 > 0,05), (p = infinite)), there isn’t difference sistolik of blood pressure before and after betwe en
experiment group with control group (p = 0,175 > 0,05), (p = 0,055), there isn’t difference diastolik of
blood pressure before and after between experiment group with control group ((p = 0,231 > 0,05), (p =
0,299 > 0,05)), there is relationship sistolik of blood pressure on hemodialisa patients, how many
influence can’t presumably because OR can’t uncountable (p = 0,000, OR uncountable). The result of
this research shows there is not the influence of music therapy to the decrease of blood pressure in post
hemodialisa patients.
