Effect of Cold Hip Bath on Autonomic Variables in Healthy Individuals - A Randomized Control Trial

Rabin lal Shrestha, Sujatha K J.

Abstract
Introduction: Cold hip bath is clinically used in the treatment of the gastrointestinal, gynecological and urogenital dysfunction but its physiological effects are not understood fully. This study aims to study the physiological changes following the cold hip bath.
Aims and Objectives: To evaluate the changes in the autonomic variables such as Pulse rate, Heart rate variability, Respiratory rate, and blood pressure following the cold hip bath.
Material and Methods: Sixty healthy individuals (18 female and 42 male) of mean age 20.650.54 were randomly recruited for study group (n=30) and control group (n=30). The study group was made to sit in a hip bath tub filled with cold water of 60F (15.55C) for fifteen minutes and the control group was made to sit in an empty tub for the same duration. The pulse rate, blood pressure and heart rate variability were assessed before the intervention (baseline) and after the intervention.
Results: There was a significant reduction in Systolic blood pressure (p<0.000) and Diastolic blood pressure (p<0.007), low frequency component (LF, p<0.006l) and significant increase in high frequency component (HF, P<0.006) of Heart rate variability in cold hip bath.
Conclusion: Cold hip bath shifts the sympatho-vagal balance to parasympathetic dominance

Key words: Autonomic variables, Cold hip bath, Heart rate variability, Parasympathetic dominance
