Structured Deep Breathing Exercises Education in Patient with Coronary Artery Bypass Graft
Pre-operative evaluation and patient preparation for cardiac surgery affect post-operative outcomes and progress. A standardized pre-operative education will ensure that adequate and correct information is delivered to the patients. The research aims to determine the effectiveness of structured deep breathing exercises education on oxygenation in patients with coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery. The study used a quasi-experimental design. A total of 81 patients were recruited for this study. The SpO2 and PaO2 levels were measured using capillary saturation and Arterial Blood Gases (ABG). The results showed significant differences in SpO2 scores between control and intervention groups post-intervention.
