Abstract

Hypertension is often regarded as a silent killer because the disease often causes no symptoms in the sufferers. This disease does not only need treatment, but family support is required to prevent and treat family members who are suffering. The objective of the study is to analyze the application of warm water for foot bath therapy to lower blood pressure in people suffering from hypertension. The design used is descriptive with case studies, through family nursing process. Monitoring of warm water foot bath was carried out for 3 days, before and after measuring the blood pressure Results: there was a decrease in blood pressure after 3 days of action. In family 1, the initial blood pressure was 160/90 mmHg, after 3 days of action it decreased to 145/85 mmHg. Family 2 before therapy 150/100 mmHg, decreased to 140/86 mmHg after soaking feet in warm water. The decrease in blood pressure observed in both families was more than 10 mmHg. The application of foot bath therapy using warm water which is carried out for 3 days, is effective in reducing blood pressure in hypertension cases. Suggestions are recommended for families and subjects to be able to apply independently warm water foot bath therapy and carry out routine blood pressure checks at the nearest healthcare facility.
