The purpose of study was to determine the effects of hand massage on nausea, vomiting and anxiety in acute lymphocytic leukemia children with high dose chemotherapy. The subjects of this study consist of 15 in experimental group and 15 in control group. All subjects were diagnosed as acute lymphocytic leukemia and admitted for high dose chemotherapy at the C University Medical Center in Seoul, Korea. The hand massage was performed for 10 minutes twice a day through three days in the experimental group, not in the control group. To evaluate the effects of hand massage, the Index of Nausea, Vomiting by Rhodes et al and State-Trait Anxiety Inventory for children by Spielberger were measured before and after the experiment in both groups. Also, the level of anxiety as measured by blood pressure, pulse rate were measured before and after hand massage therapy. Result of the study were as follows; 1. The score of nausea, vomiting decreased in the experimental group, not in the control group. There was a significant difference of nausea, vomiting between the two groups. 2. The score of state anxiety decreased in the experimental group and increased in the control group. After hand massage, the state anxiety of the experimental group was significantly more positive than the control group at the 2nd measurement 3. There was no significant difference of pulse rate between the two groups. 4. systolic blood pressure decreased in the experimental group and some increased in the control group. There was a significant difference of systolic blood pressure between the two groups. 5. The level of diastolic blood pressure in the two groups was significantly decreased over time. In conclusion, hand massage could be effective in decreasing nausea, vomiting, state anxiety, pulse rate and blood pressure of acute leukemia children receiving high dose chemotherapy.
