Aims: Weaning from mechanical ventilation is a frequent nursing activity in Intensive Care Unit (ICU). The aim of this study was to determine the effect of nature-based sound on shortening length of weaning from mechanical ventilation time in patients undergoing Coronary Artery Bypass Graft (CABG) surgery.
Methods: This is a quasi-experimental study in which 120 patients undergoing CABG surgery had participated. These patients were undergoing weaning from mechanical ventilator; they were randomly divided into two intervention and control groups of 60 subjects. The study was done in 2013. The intervention group listened to nature-based sounds through headphones, immediately after the first trigger, they listened to the sound at 20 min intervals until extubation. Data collection tools included a demographic- medical questionnaire and a researcher-made data recording sheet. Data analysis was done through descriptive and inferential statistical methods including independent t-test, chi-square and Fisher's exact test by using SPSS 16 software.
Results: Findings showed that the intervention group had significantly lower length of mechanical ventilation time than the control group (p<0.001).
Conclusions: The results showed that nature-based sound as a non-pharmacological treatment can be effective in shortening length of weaning from mechanical ventilation time and it can be helpful in this process.
