Background and Aim: Considering the effect of coronary heart disease (CAD) on the health status, the present study aimed to investigate the effectiveness of Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction on health status and disease symptoms of patients with CAD after CABG.
Materials and Methods: The research method was single subject. The statistical population of study included all patients with coronary artery disease in Tabriz city who referred to Shahid Madani Hospital in Tabriz during the second six months of the year 2016 for rehabilitation after surgery. The study sample consisted of four available CAD patients. Seattle's Angina Questionnaire (SAQ) and a researcher-designed scale for CAD symptoms were used as tools. Data were analyzed through recovery percentage, PND, SMD and visual analysis of chart method.
Ethical Considerations: This study with research ethics code 2384411 has been approved by research ethics committee at Tabriz university of medical sciences, Iran.
Findings: Results indicated that MBSR has a moderate efficiency in improving the disease symptoms. The effectiveness of MBSR is relatively low in improving the health status of patients with CAD.
Conclusion: It can be concluded that MBSR is a relatively effective treatment on reducing disease symptoms of CAD patients and is a relatively poor intervention to improve the health status of these patients.
