Pain and anxiety lead from having chest tube were measured once daily in both control and intervention groups. Interventions including chest physiotherapy, pursed-lip breathing and upper limb exercises were performed after sampling in control group was finished. Sampling was done within total time of almost 7 months. Data gathering tools were visual analog scale (VAS) for pain and anxiety. Data were analyzed using SPSS v.16.
Results: There was a significant difference between mean scores of pain (P<0.05) and anxiety (P<0.05) among intervention and control group after performing interventions which were lower in the intervention group.
Conclusion: Since performing concurrent respiratory workout and mobility exercises had a positive effect on reducing pain and anxiety in post-operative lung cancer surgery patients with chest tube, results can be used to reduce these complications in those patients.
