Background:Many common medical, surgical, and diagnostic procedures performed for conscious patients can be accompanied by significant anxiety. Mind-body-spirit interventions could serve as useful adjunctive treatments for the reduction of stress. Objective:To evaluate the effects of stress management, imagery, touch therapy, remote intercessory prayer, and standard therapy on mood in patients awaiting percutaneous interventions for unstable coronary syndromes as part of the Monitoring and… 
Massage therapy reduces tension, anxiety, and pain in patients awaiting invasive cardiovascular procedures.
TLDR
This pilot study showed that massage can be incorporated into medical cardiovascular units' preprocedural practice and adds validity to prior massage studies.
The Effect of Music Intervention in Relation to Gender During Coronary Angiographic Procedures: A Randomized Clinical Trial
TLDR
Music intervention in patients undergoing angiographic procedures was highly feasible, but not effective in this study though the delivery of music went smoothly and did not disturb the examination and patients and staff alike looked favorably on it.
Relation of Depression, Anxiety, and Quality of Life with Outcome after Percutaneous Transluminal Coronary Angioplasty
TLDR
Successful PTCA resulted in significant reduction in anxiety, depression, and physical limitation and improvement in disease perception and health status.
Biofield Therapies in Cardiovascular Disease Management: A Brief Review
TLDR
Three biofield therapies developed or used within the field of nursing (Therapeutic Touch, Reiki, and Healing Touch) are surveyed, surveying the use of these interventions for individuals with CVD, and outcomes that may impact CVD risk factors and health-related quality of life.
Hypnosis for Acute Distress Management During Medical Procedures
TLDR
The procedural environment as well as pharmacologic and nonpharmacologic interventions to reduce distress are described, and Obstacles and possible reasons for the slow acceptance of nonpharmologic interventions, mind-body therapies, and patient-centered approaches are addressed.
Psychological interventions for coronary heart disease.
TLDR
Psychological treatments appear effective in treating psychological symptoms of CHD patients and Uncertainly remains regarding the subgroups of patients who would benefit most from treatment and the characteristics of successful interventions.
The effects of healing touch on pain, nausea, and anxiety following bariatric surgery: a pilot study.
TLDR
The findings indicate that the Healing Touch intervention is feasible and acceptable to patients undergoing bariatric surgery, and significantly improved pain, nausea, and anxiety in these patients.
Psychological interventions for coronary heart disease.
TLDR
To assess the effectiveness of psychological interventions compared with usual care for people with CHD on total mortality and cardiac mortality; cardiac morbidity; and participant-reported psychological outcomes of levels of depression, anxiety, and stress, a Cochrane systematic review is published.
Biofield Therapies: Helpful or Full of Hype? A Best Evidence Synthesis
TLDR
Evidence for biofield therapies' effects on fatigue and quality of life for cancer patients, as well as for comprehensive pain outcomes and affect in pain patients, and for decreasing anxiety in cardiovascular patients is examined.

Integrative noetic therapies as adjuncts to percutaneous intervention during unstable coronary syndromes: Monitoring and Actualization of Noetic Training (MANTRA) feasibility pilot.
TLDR
Acceptance of noetic adjuncts to invasive therapy for acute coronary syndromes was excellent, and logistics were feasible, and no outcomes differences were significant; however, index hospitalization data consistently suggested a therapeutic benefit with noetic therapy.
The impact of foot massage and guided relaxation following cardiac surgery: a randomized controlled trial.
TLDR
These interventions appear to be effective, noninvasive techniques for promoting psychological wellbeing in this patient group, and were well received by the subjects.
Positive Therapeutic Effects of Intercessory Prayer in a Coronary Care Unit Population
  • R. Byrd

TLDR
It is suggested that intercessory prayer to the Judeo-Christian God has a beneficial therapeutic effect in patients admitted to a CCU.
A randomized, controlled trial of the effects of remote, intercessory prayer on outcomes in patients admitted to the coronary care unit.
TLDR
Remote, intercessory prayer was associated with lower CCU course scores, suggesting that prayer may be an effective adjunct to standard medical care.
Taped therapeutic suggestions and taped music as adjuncts in the care of coronary-artery-bypass patients.
TLDR
If taped therapeutic suggestions have a measurable effect upon cardiac surgery patients, demonstrating this effect will require more detailed patient evaluations to identify subgroups of patients responsive to this type of intervention.
Relaxation technique and postoperative pain in patients undergoing cardiac surgery.
A two-group pretest and posttest quasi-experimental design was used to determine the effectiveness of a slow, deep-breathing relaxation technique in relieving postoperative pain after coronary artery
Effects of psychophysical stress on surgical outcome.
TLDR
With preoperative immune status covaried, high responders to cold pressor stress had significantly lower PWM response after surgery, indicating some T‐B cell interaction defect and more narcotics and complications.
Guided imagery in cardiac surgery.
TLDR
Patients who completed the guided imagery program had a shorter average length of stay, a decrease in average direct pharmacy costs, and a decreaseIn average direct pain medication costs while maintaining high overall patient satisfaction with the care and treatment provided.
The Visual Analog Scale Allows Effective Measurement of Preoperative Anxiety and Detection of Patients’ Anesthetic Concerns
TLDR
Different methods for measuring preoperative anxiety are compared, certain patient characteristics that predispose to high anxiety are identified, and the quantity and quality of anxiety that patients experience preoperatively are described.
Relaxation response in femoral angiography.
TLDR
Elicitation of the relaxation response is a simple, inexpensive, efficacious, and practical method to reduce pain, anxiety, and medication during femoral angiography and may be useful in other invasive procedures.
