Hypertension or high blood pressure is an increase in systolic blood pressure 140 mmHg and diastolic blood pressure 90 mmHg when examined twice within 5 minutes in a calm state. One way to reduce blood pressure in hypertensive patients is to relax muscles progressively.</p> <p><strong>Objective:</strong> This study aims to explain progressive muscle relaxation in lowering blood pressure in hypertensive patients.</p> <p><strong>Methods:</strong> The retrieval and data collection method are carried out through library research by tracing the results of scientific publications from 2017-2022 through the Google Scholar, Pubmed, and Researchgate databases.</p> <p><strong>Results:</strong> Progressive muscle relaxation can be done continuously at least twice daily for 25-30 minutes.</p> <p><strong>Conclusion:</strong> Progressive muscle relaxation should be done correctly with the correct sequence, movement, and focus so that individuals who do progressive muscle relaxation feel relaxed. Progressive muscle relaxation can be done independently or in combination with other non-pharmacological techniques</p> Muhammad Basri, Sitti Rahmatia, Baharuddin K, Nur Afni Oktaviani Akbar ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 https://akper-sandikarsa.e-journal.id/JIKSH/article/view/811 Thu, 01 Dec 2022 00:00:00 +0000 Progressive Policies and Efforts in Overcoming Stunting in Toddlers https://akper-sandikarsa.e-journal.id/JIKSH/article/view/814 <p><strong>Introduction:</strong> Stunting is a condition of growth failure in children under five due to chronic malnutrition characterized by their length or height being below the standard.</p> <p><strong>Objective:</strong> Know progressive policies and efforts in overcoming stunting in toddlers.

In patient 1, it was found that the patient had anemic conjunctiva, and patient 2 had no complaints of anemic conjunctiva. This happens because low hemoglobin levels can prove the presence of iron deficiency anemia. Serum protein levels provide an estimate of offal protein deposits.</p> <p><strong>Conclusion:</strong> The problem of nursing instability of blood glucose levels in patients has not been resolved because the blood glucose levels of both cases have not stabilized/are normal.</p> Nur Syamsi Norma Lalla, Jena Rumatiga ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 https://akper-sandikarsa.e-journal.id/JIKSH/article/view/816 Thu, 01 Dec 2022 00:00:00 +0000 Depressive Symptoms in Older Adults during the Covid-19 Pandemic https://akper-sandikarsa.e-journal.id/JIKSH/article/view/817 <p><strong>Introduction</strong>: Corona Virus Diseases (Covid-19) 's impact on older adults leads to physical health problems and can affect psychological issues such as depressive symptoms.</p> <p><strong>This study aims:</strong>&nbsp;To determine the prevalence of depressive symptoms in older adults and the related factors that influence depressive symptoms.</p> <p><strong>Methods:</strong> This study uses a literature review approach based on data sources from Google scholar, PubMed, and ProQuest.Then, 17,323 articles were filtered based on inclusion criteria, and 14 were included in this study.</p> <p><strong>Results:</strong> The prevalence of depressive symptoms ranged from 7.7% to 62.3%.
