Abstract


BACKGROUND OF STUDY

Anxiety may be consider to be an emotional response to a perceived threat or danger.1 (spielberger and Rickman 1990). hospitalization alone presents many such threats to most patient since it related to new stressful experiences the psychological effects of which may be amplified by poor health. Anxiety is especially high for CABG patients while they are on the waiting list within an unknown surgery date (24). The patients have fear of dying before, rather than during surgery, and this fear influenced strongly their level of anxiety also manifests as an activator of sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous system and cardiovascular excitation that can exacerbate CAD symptoms. Hence this study has been conducted to assess the level of anxiety among patients undergoing CABG Surgery in selected Cardiac Hospitals. A descriptive study was used for this study. A total 30 subjects were selected by using simple random sampling method. To collect data from respondents, Modified state-trait anxiety inventory was used. Results showed that patient had severe anxiety. With regard to patients association there is significant association between levels of anxiety with selected demographic variables at 5% level. The study concluded that most of the patients 93.33% have severe anxiety. Hence health education and pre surgery education should be incorporated In cardiac hospital to reduce the level of anxiety and its complication in patients undergoing CABG surgery.
