Background and Objective: Patients under hemodialysis are faced with many stressors and psychological problems such as sleep disorder and anxiety. These problems could be a threat to their health and be significant clinically.  Thus, we aimed to determine the relationship between anxiety and sleep quality in hemodialysis patients.

Material and Methods: This descriptive-analytic study was conducted on 74 hemodialysis patients in Hefdahe Shahrivar hospital of Borazjan city, 2014. The data was collected by Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index (PSQI) and State-Trait Anxiety Inventory (STAI), and analyzed by t-test, ANOVA and correlation Coefficient using SPSS.

Results: Most of the patients (89.2%) had the average anxiety and 63.3% of them had low sleeping quality. The average of patients’ anxiety and sleeping quality were 49±6.5 and 11.7±2/4, respectively. The correlation coefficient between anxiety and sleeping quality was 0.515 (p=0.001), pointing out an acceptable correlation. Along with the increase of anxiety, the dimension of the subjective sleep quality, delay in falling asleep, the sleep disturbances were affected and ended up low sleeping quality. There was no significant correlation between the anxiety and sleeping quality and daily dysfunction.

Conclusion: Given the acceptable correlation between anxiety and sleep quality, there is a direct relation between anxiety and sleep quality of the patients.
