The Effect of Holy Qur ’an Recitation on Depressive Symptoms in Hemodialysis Patients: A Randomized Clinical Trial

AbstractPatients with advanced renal failure often face considerable sociopsychological stress as a result of lifestyle changes due to the disease and its treatment. The aim of the present study is to examine the effect of the Holy Qur ’an recitation on depressive symptoms in hemodialysis patients. In this clinical trial, 54 hemodialysis patients were randomized to either an experimental (n = 27) or a control (n = 27) group. Patients completed the Beck Depression Inventory-II (BDI-II) at baseline and at 1 month after the intervention. Participants in the experimental group listened to recitation of the Holy Qur’an, while those in the control group received no intervention. The mean BDI-II score at bas eline was 33.6 (±6.7) for the experimental group and 29.3 (±9.0) for the control group; at the end of treatment, BDI-II scores in the experimental and control groups were 14.5 (±4.8) and 31.6 (±9.2), respectively. Results from the repeated-measures general linear model controlling for baseline d ifferences indicated a significant treatment effect (F = 9.30,p = 0.004, Cohen’sd = 0.85). Holy Qur’an recitation has a significant effect on lowering depressive symptoms in hemodialysis patients. Holy Qur’an recitation is an easy-to-implement and cost-effective strategy that may be used to supplement the treatment of depression in this setting in Iran.

Continious renal replacement therapy (CRRT) is a well recognizied treatment of choice in acute renal failure, however CRRT became a preferred treatment of metabolic emergencies with high leucine and ammonia levels like Maple syrup urine disease (MSUD). MSUD is a rare metabolic disorder caused by deficiency in the activity of the branched-chain a-ketoacid dehydrogenase complex. The toxic accumulation of branche...

Endoscopy revealed fine white granular discoloration throughout the stomach, a moderately reddish depression on the lesser curvature of the gastric angle, and white granular discoloration in the surrounding area. A magnified image using narrow-band imaging showed that the depressed part had irregular vascular and pit structures. We established a diagnosis of in...

Rationale: Transradial access (TRA) is common for cardiac catheterization, but radial artery spasm (RAS) is suggested to be highlighted. Severe radical artery spasm could be solved by a relative novel approach called “sheathless technique,” using a Tiger diagnostic catheter. Patient concerns: A 73-year-old woman presented to our institution with a recurrent feeling of discomfort in her chest. Her electrocardiogram showed ST segment depression. Her medical history indicated arterial hypertension, diabetes, and chronic renal failure. She was on hemodialysis for 5 years for the management of renal problems. F...

This study from Herzog et al (from our own Hennepin County Medical Center) included patients from a national registry and compared 3049 patients on dialysis admitted and eventually found to have acute MI compared with 534,395 patients not on dialysis admitted with an eventual diagnosis of acute MI. Of these groups, only 22% of dialysis patients had an admission diagnosis consistent with acute MI while 43.8% of nondialysis patients had the correct admission diagnosis of acute MI.  Dialysis patients had double the rate of cardiac arrest (11% vs 5%), were less likely to receive reperfusion therapy when eligible (47% vs. ...

We report the case of a young man who took a large amount of caffeine powder dissolved in water in a suicide attempt. He was found comatose. The initial diagnosis was difficult. In hospital he suffered from rhabdomyolysis with renal failure and sepsis rapidly developed. After renal replacement treatment with hemodialysis, long-term artificial ventilation with tracheotomy and a 3‑week stay in the intensive care unit, the patient could be discharged to a rehabilitation center.

Sexual dysfunction occurs commonly in individuals with end-stage renal disease. Chronic renal failure as well as the treatments used for it generally has a negative impact on sexual function with a subsequent increase in the risk of depression. There is scarcity of published data on female sexual dysfunction and the degree of improvement in patients on hemodialysis (HD) and transplant (Tx) recipients. The aim of this study was to compare the sexual function and degree of depression in HD and Tx patients with control group.
