Ardhita Listya Fitriani, Supriyana, Runjati


Abstract: Introduction Maternal death is one of the health problems that must be the concern of the world community. Hypertension or high blood pressure is systolic pressure of more than 140 mmHg and diastolic blood pressure is more than 90 mmHg. To reduce hypertension in postpartum mothers, treatment is needed in accordance with government programs and complementary development. Treatment of hypertension in postpartum mothers aims to prevent the occurrence of complications through pharmacological and non-pharmacological treatment. Methods A Quasy experiment research design with a design with a sample of 20 postpartum mothers who met the inclusion and exclusion criteria in the intervention group given ambon bananas @ 200 grams for 4 days and the control group given POR (Drug Use Rational) with Consecutive sampling technique which is cluster random method. Analysis using independent t-test and different test using paired t test. Results There was a decrease in blood pressure in the intervention group of 27.90 6.95 (p 0.000) and the control group of 21.80 6.94 (p 0.000) as evidenced that Ambon banana can increase potassium levels. The way potassium works can inhibit angiotensin I to become angiotensin II so that the blood vessel muscles experience relaxation. There was a significant increase in potassium levels in the intervention group (p = 0.000) and the control group (p = 0.001). Conclusion The provision of additional food for ambon banana has the potential as an alternative to lowering blood pressure and increasing postpartum maternal potassium levels so that it can be applied in the provision of Post Natal Care (PNC) midwifery care.
