ABSTRACT:
Sleep is necessary and an essential part of the 24-hour cycle, and the quality and quantity of sleep are reflected by the individual’s daytime function. It is a natural state of bodily rest observed in humans. It is distinguished from quiet wakefulness by a decreased ability to react to stimuli, and it is more easily reversible than hibernation or coma. When there is reduced sleep, we become irritable, tired, and aggressive, more likely to have confused reaction. Sleep disturbance is common problem among hospitalized patients especially in critical care units. This becomes worse during the recovery period of surgical cases especially following open heart surgery cases due to several factors.
