Objective (s): Angina pectoris greatly affects quality of life. The aim of this study was to examine quality of life and related factors in patients with angina pectoris.
Methods: This was a cross-sectional study of 200 patients with angina pectoris attending a teaching hospital in Qom Iran, in 2012. The Short Form Health Survey (SF-36) was used to measure quality of life. Data were analyzed using the SPSS 16 performing descriptive statistical tests, Pearson correlation coefficient, independent t-test and ANCOVA.
Results: Higher scores observed for social functioning (mean =59.0), while it was lowest for role limitation due to physical problems (mean =33.12). Female participants had lower quality of life, and these differences were statistically significant for all subscales (p<0.05). All quality of life subscales except mental health and role limitation due to emotional problems had significant correlation with functional class. Mental health had negatively significant correlation with coronary artery bypass surgery (P=0.002).
Conclusion: The findings indicated that gender and functional class might worsen quality of life in angina pectoris patients. It seems that more nursing care is needed for this subgroup of angina patients.
