Abstract
ABSTRACT
A total of 52 people (15 men) of middle age were studied, of these, 19 patients with cKD stage V were receiving hemodialysis and 33 were healthy individuals. We used spielbergerhanin anxiety test to study the levels of anxiety, beck depression scale, visual analogue scale of pain and itching, tactile sensitivity thresholds and poststimulus pain was measured using 5 ms rectangular pulses of focused ultrasound (FUs) at 2.5 MG directed to the skin at the fingertips of both hands, ten patients in the second phase of the study received audiotherapy. It was found that patients with a long period of hemodialysis demonstrated a lower pain threshold than the group of patients with chronic pain and chronic itching. The dependence of the threshold of tactile sensitivity on the duration of dialysis has not been established. The majority of patients were identified beyond the normal parameters of situational, personal anxiety and depression. These rates were higher in patients with a long period of treatment with hemodialysis. Under the influence of audiotherapy (regardless of baseline pain threshold, the value of the initial indicators of anxiety and depression, duration of dialysis therapy) there is a positive dynamics of the mental state, the level of pain and itching. Audiotherapy led to an increase in tactile thresholds and pain thresholds in the direction of the rules and reduce the numerical difference between tactile thresholds and thresholds of pain compared with patients who received no audiotherapy.
