Abstract

Aim Sleep disorders are common in patients with end-stage renal disease. Although studies have been conducted on the type and frequency of sleep disturbances in hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis patients, there has been no study comparing the sleep quality between these two groups. Therefore, we aimed to compare sleep quality between hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis patients.
