Background and Aim: Hospitalization in Intensive Care Units (ICU) causes sleep and comfort disturbances in patients and has an adverse effect on the recovery process of these patients. One of the factors affecting sleep and comfort of patients is ambient noise. This study aimed to determine the effect of the white noise on sleep quality and comfort of patients.
Material and methods: The present study was a randomized, double-blind clinical trial with 60 patients undergoing open heart surgery who had admitted in the ICU in Hamadan in 2018.
Patients in the experimental group selected one of the three sounds of rain, sea and river waves and played them with headphones for three nights for 20-30 minutes. The control group did not receive any intervention. The sleep quality of patients was measured using standard St Mary's Hospital Sleep Quality Questionnaires and VAS.  
Results: The results showed that there were no differences in demographic and clinical characteristics (nausea, medications, type of surgery, length of stay, duration of surgery) in the control and experimental groups. The results also showed that using white noise significantly reduces sleep disturbance and increases comfort in the experimental group compared to the control group (P <0.001).
Conclusion: The use of white noise such as the sound of sea waves, river sound and rain in ICU patients after open heart surgery reduces their sleep disturbance and increases their comfort.
Keywords: Patient’s Comfort, Sleep Quality, Cardiac Surgeryy
