Purpose: While sleep can be a critical component for optimal health,
performance, and well-being, little is known about factors that may
enhance the quality of sleep in healthy and compromised individuals. Good
nutrition and adequate dietary intakes have been shown to be effective for
most health conditions; however, the notion that nutritional intakes may
impact sleep quality has been relatively ignored in clinical studies.
Therefore, the purpose of this study is to examine the effect of
nutritional intakes on sleep quality.
Theoretical/Conceptual Framework: Orem's Theory of Self-Care guides this
descriptive, clinical study. The effect of dietary intakes on sleep
patterns and quality are monitored and analyzed for participants wearing
Actigraph sleep watches and consuming weighed food intakes for 16 days.
Subjects: The sample population is comprised of 45 randomly selected,
ethnically-diverse 20 to 40 year old healthy adults recruited through a
midwestern university.
Methods: This study tests the hypothesis that sleep quality is poor when
participants' nutritional intakes do not meet recommended daily values.
Demographic, nutritional, and self-care agency variables are being
analyzed for relationships to sleep quality scores through use of
descriptive statistics and multiple regression analyses. Instruments used
for measurement include a Demographic Questionnaire, Sleep Actigraph
(alpha=.88), the Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index (alpha=.83 for the seven
components), Weighed Food Intakes, and Kearney and Fleischer's Exercise of
Self-care Agency (alpha=.80).
Implications for Study: Nurses need to be aware of factors such as good
nutrition that may affect sleep quality so that performance and quality of
life can be maximized for healthy and hospitalized individuals.
This study is conducted as a part of DOD Research Award #DAMD17-03-1-0010.
