 Background and Aim: Pain and restlessness is a common problem in the intensive care unit. Sensory stimulation is one of the non-pharmacological methods of pain control. Dyang sensory stimulation includes visual, auditory, olfactory, tactile and motor sensory stimulation. In this study, the effect of Dyang sensory stimulation on the level of consciousness, pain, and restlessness of unconscious patients was investigated.
Materials and Methods: This study was performed as a clinical trial on 60 patients under a ventilator in two groups. The intervention group received Dyang sensory stimulation. Sensory stimuli were performed by the researcher once in the evening and again at night for one hour for six consecutive days. Fifteen minutes after sensory stimulation, the level of consciousness, pain, and restlessness of patients was measured using a GlasgowComa, BPS (Behavioral Pain Scale), and Rass (Richmond Agitation Sedation Scale), respectively.
Results: The mean level of consciousness of patients in the two groups before the intervention was below 7. The mean pain intensity (p=0.684) and restlessness (p=0.739) of the two groups before the intervention did not show a significant difference. After sensory stimulation from the second day, the level of consciousness of the patients in the intervention group increased compared to the control group (p=0.016). However, there was no significant difference between the two groups in terms of pain intensity and restlessness all days under study (p>0.05).
Conclusion: Dyang sensory stimulation can increase the level of consciousness.  Therefore, this multidimensional stimulation method is applicable in patients under a ventilator.
