Abstract: 

Background and Aim: One of the indicators of recovery in the patients admitted to intensive care units is improvement of the level of consciousness. Various factors, including the type of care are effective in the changes of consciousness level of the patients. This study was conducted to determine the effect of nursing care plan based on “Roy adaptation model” in physiologic aspect on the level of consciousness of the patients in the intensive care unit.
Material and Methods: This triple-blind clinical trial included 100 patients in the intensive care unit in 2017. Two ICU units in Sanandaj hospitals were selected randomly as intervention and control groups. Eligible patients in each unit were randomly assigned to intervention and control groups. The intervention group received nursing care plan based on "Roy adaptation model” and the control group received routine care. We measured level of consciousness for every patient based on the GCS for 7 days, twice a day. We used SPSS version 21 for data analysis.
Results: The mean level of consciousness in the first three days and nights did not show any significant difference between the intervention and control groups. But there was a significant difference between the mean levels of consciousness from the fourth day and night on, between intervention and control groups (p <0.05).
Conclusion: Roy adaptation model was effective in increasing the level of consciousness after three days in the patients in the intensive care unit. Therefore, we recommend organized nursing care based on standard nursing models for all of the patients in the intensive care units.
