Aims: Improving the adequacy of dialysis is the main factor for reducing complications and mortality in dialysis patients. According to different researches, music affects physiologic factors. But there is not any research that reveals the effect of music on dialysis adequacy. This study was conducted to compare the effect of Qur'an recitation with normal condition, silence, Arabic music and Iranian music on adequacy of dialysis. Methods: This clinical trial study was conducted by participation of all end-stage renal disease patients admitted in hemodialysis ward of Motahari hospital of Jahrom in 2008. 68 patients were selected by purposive sampling method. Data were collected using Glock- Stark religiosity questionnaire. Interventions were done in 5 stages. Normal condition, Qur'an recitation (Yasin: 1-83), Iranian music (30 minute), Arabic music (30 minute) and silence. All variables affecting the adequacy of dialysis in all intervention sessions were homogenized. Dialysis adequacy was measured by kt/v formula. Data were analyzed using Chi square, Paired t-test and ANOVA test. Results: Means of dialysis adequacy calculated by 0.963±0.757 kt/v, 51.6±87.9 URR and 0.484±0.121 PRU formulas. No significant difference was observed in 5 groups by ANOVA test (p>0.05). Normal condition had the best dialysis adequacy. Conclusion: None of the situations had impact on dialysis adequacy; although the calculated adequacy by kt/v formula for Qur'an recitation condition shows an increase which is not significant.
