Abstract

Purpose: The present study was to investigate sleep disturbance and related variables in patients undergoing hemopoietic stem cell transplantation(HSCT) on the day of admission, before HSCT, and of discharge, respectively. Method: A total of 52 HSCT patients were recruited from an university hospital from August 2002 to August 2003. The patients were asked to complete a set of sleep disturbance questionnaires. Result: The scores of sleep disturbance-related physical and emotional subscales on the day before HSCT and on the day of discharge were significantly higher than that on the day of admission. However, the score of a emotional subscale was not significantly different during the hospitalization for HSCT. About 10% of the variance of sleep disturbance was explained by the length after diagnosis on the day of admission, and 59.4% was by the type of disease, religion, gender, educational level on the day before HSCT. About 40.7% was by family income, gender, and the frequency of administration on the day of discharge. Conclusion: Nursing staffs should care for HSCT patients with more interest to reduce variables disturbing sleep. Especially, more careful nursing interventions have to be considered at the time of the day before HSCT and the time of discharge.
