Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Purpose: This study assessed the effectiveness of patient-directed interventions for improving sleep quality in patients with cystic fibrosis and pulmonary hypertension. Methods: A nonrandomized, prospective pilot study was used to monitor the effectiveness of patient-initiated sleep preferences in 15 hospitalized patients. Results: During their stay, 53.3% of patients reported better sleep associated with the intervention, supporting the need for and efficacy of patient-driven sleep interventions. Conclusion: Patients unanimously recognized the need for sleep interventions and were open to seeking a good sleep hygiene regimen to improve their sleep quality while in the hospital.
