Table 3 The differences of blood pressure before and after intervention in the intervention and control group

From: Decreased blood pressure among community dwelling older adults following progressive muscle relaxation and music therapy (RESIK)

Variable Mean SD** P
Systolic
•Intervention 123.6 14.81 0.001*
•Control 142.2 15.82
Diastolic
•Intervention 80.20 11.16 0.167
•Control 83.20 10.39
  1. *meaningful on α < 0.05 ** deviation standard
  2. Illustrated that there was a significant difference of systolic blood pressure between intervention and control group (p < 0.05), but there was no differences of diastolic blood pressure between intervention and control group (p > 0.05)
