Search Strategies to Identify Information on Adverse Effects: A Systematic Review (Report)

INTRODUCTION For patients, clinicians, and other decision makers to make informed, balanced decisions, they need appropriate information on both the intended benefits and undesirable consequences of an intervention. However, currently there is an absence of sufficient evidence-based information on the frequency or magnitude of adverse effects. Long lists of potential adverse effects may be all […]

Effects of Progressive Muscular Relaxation Training on Quality of Life in Anxious Patients After Coronary Artery Bypass Graft Surgery.

Effects of Progressive Muscular Relaxation Training on Quality of Life in Anxious Patients After Coronary Artery Bypass Graft Surgery.

Background & objectives: Evidences suggest that relaxation therapy may improve psychological outcomes in heart patients. We evaluated the effect of progressive muscular relaxation 0PMR) training in decreasing anxiety and improving quality of life among anxious patients after coronary artery bypass graft surgery (CABG). Method: This study was an open uncontrolled trial. The sample included !10 […]
