The present researchers applied SPSS Software V (13), descriptive statistics, Paired t-test and Friedman statistical test to analyze the collected data.

Results: Data analysis shows that with repeated measurement, there is a significant relationship between applying continuous care model and amounts of systolic and diastolic blood pressure of HD patients (p<0/05).
