Introduction: Anxiety is one of the most common problems in patients before surgery. The aim of this study was to compare the effect of progressive muscle relaxation and aromatherapy with Mohammadi flowers on anxiety in general surgery candidates.
Methods: In this randomized controlled trial, 90 patients undergoing general surgery referred to Ayatollah Kashani Hospital in Shahrekord in 1398 were randomly divided into three groups of relaxation (30), aromatherapy (30) and control (30). Data were collected using a demographic questionnaire, DASS scale of anxiety, 21-item DASS questionnaire, and vital signs record form. Data were analyzed using SPSS software version 21.
Results: Results showed that there was no significant difference in mean scores of anxiety before intervention between the three groups (P> 0.05). But after intervention this difference was significant (P <0.05). intergroup comparisons also showed that there were no statistically significant differences between the two groups in terms of the variable studied and the two methods were not superior to each other.
Conclusion: According to the results of this study, it can be suggested to use muscle relaxation and aromatherapy to reduce anxiety in patients undergoing general surgery in bed.
