Background : The function of the coronary arteries is to transport oxygenated blood to the heart muscle and if these arteries have been clogged due to fat plaque, patient has to undergo coronary angiography to determine the narrowing rate of coronary arteries and for this purpose, the left femoral artery is used . The aim of this research is to study the effect of pressure bandaging in reducing bleeding , bruising, back pain and groin pain in the patients undergoing coronary angiography. Materials and Methods: This quasi-experimental study was carried out on 100 patients undergoing coronary angiography in surgical and CCUwards of Shahid Rajaee hospital of Tehran and Khorramabad Shahid Madani hospital. Subjects were randomized to receive a pressure bandage(no=50) or sand bag(no=50) after manual compression of the femoral artery puncture site. Results: The patients without pressure bandages had a higher incidence of bleeding and bled earlier(p<0/05) after catheter removal than the patients with bandages. The incidence and extent of bruising was the same in both groups of patients with sandbags experienced a higher incidence of back and groin pain . Conclusion: Thus, regarding the associated increase in patients, comfort, and delay in time of onset of bleeding, pressure bandages could be used routinely in the management of patients after coronary angiography.
