Summary

This study is aimed to determine the effect of abdominal massage on excretory activity and pulmonary function tests (PFT) in patients undergoing PKP.

Description

Methods: The research will be carried out with 78 patients who underwent partial hip replacement. Patients were assigned to study (abdominal massage) and control groups by randomization. Abdominal massage will be applied to the patients at least 30 minutes after the morning and evening meals (08:30 in the morning, 20:30 in the evening) for 15 minutes, similar to the literature. Patients' data will be collected 15 minutes before and after the application of abdominal massage. Within the scope of the patient's data, information on pulmonary function test values, intra-abdominal pressure value and excretory activities will be collected. Abdominal massage will start in the evening of the day the patient is transferred to the clinic (20:30), and will be terminated when the patient defecates. No treatment will be applied to the patients in the control group. The data recorded before and after the abdominal massage in the study group will be recorded in the Excretory Activity Form and the Pulmonary Function Test Form as a result of the measurements made at the same time in the control group.
