[Research Presentation] Background: The pain is one of the most important problems and complaint that has been experienced by patients who are influenced by surgery. The pain causes physiological responses harmful on the body recovery after cardiac surgery. They routinely report mild to moderate pain even though sedative drugs have been administered. Complementary strategies based on sound research finding are needed to supplement postoperative pain relief using nonpharmacologic management. Foot and hand massage by stimulates nonpainful nerve fibers and releasing Androphins, has the potential to assist in pain relief. Purpose: To determine of foot and hand massage effect on postoperative cardiac pain. Material & Method: This study was a clinical trial and 65 patients were randomly assigned to either control (n=33) or massage group (n=32). The massage group received a 20 minutes foots and hands massage each extremity 5 minutes but control group lie on the bed without massage for 20 minutes. The pain intensity measured by VAS and other variables were measured by check list before and after massage in two groups.áFindings: There was statistically significant difference for the pain intensity, type and amount additional sedative drug between both groups after intervention (massage) (p-value = 0.000). áDiscussion and Conclusion: According to the obtained findings first and two hypothesis be approved, and the postoperative cardiac pain was reduced by massage thus, this study supported effectiveness of massage in postoperative cardiac surgical pain.
