Context: Various factors can hamper the hemodynamic status and the arterial oxygen saturation (SpO2) percentage in patients. Aims: The study has been performed pursuing the goal to compare the effect of two methods, namely, Qur'an recitation and scheduled visits on the hemodynamic status and SpO2of acute myocardial infarction (AMI) suffering patients. Setting and Design: This study was conducted in myocardial infarction patients of Mazandaran heart center. Materials and Methods: The present study is a single-blind clinical trial. One hundred and twenty (n = 120) AMI patients were randomly divided into three groups. For one group, the chanting of the surahs “Ya Sin and Al-Hashr” was played. The intervention group had a 30-m scheduled visit with the desired individuals and the control group did not receive the usual cares. The patients' symptoms of hemodynamic and SpO2percentage were measured before, during, and after the intervention. Statistical Analysis Used: The data analysis was performed using the statistical tests (multiple comparison test of Bonferroni, ANOVA test, and repeated-measure variance analysis). Results: The changes in the respiratory rate and arterial blood SpO2percentage in the pre- and post-Qur' a recitation intervention group patients were meaningful. Quranic recitation improved the symptoms of hemodynamic and the arterial blood SpO2percentage more than the scheduled visit. Conclusion: The medical team can employ Quranic recitation to enhance the symptoms of hemodynamic, to reduce the anxiety, and to improve the arterial blood SpO2percentage.
