Background: Patients in cardiac surgery intensive care units are affected by different discomforting factors and use different strategies for their management.
Objective: The aim of this study was to examine the relationship of discomforting factors with coping strategies among patients
hospitalized in cardiac surgery intensive care units.

Methods: This descriptive - correlational study was done in 2016. A convenience sample of 110 patients was drawn from the cardiac
surgery intensive care unit of Amir - al - momenin heart surgery center, Kordkuy, Iran. Data were collected using a demographic
questionnaire, the Discomforting Factors in Cardiac Surgery Intensive Care Unit Questionnaire, and Jalowiec Coping Scale. Pearson
correlation analysis, the one - way analysis of variance, the paired - sample t - test and the Tukey’s post hoc test were used to analyze
the data. Data analysis was performed via the SPSS software (v. 16.0) and at a significance level of less than 0.05.

Results: The mean score of discomforting factors was greater than the moderate level (74.08 ± 16.93). Participants used emotion -
focused coping strategies more than problem-focused ones. Discomforting factors were inversely correlated with problem - focused
strategies (r = - 0.266; P = 0.005) and directly correlated with emotion-focused strategies (r = 0.247; P = 0.009).

Conclusions: Patients in cardiac surgery intensive care units suffer from the negative effects of different discomforting factors and
use emotion - focused coping strategies more than problem - focused strategies for the management of the factors.

Keywords: Discomforting Factors, Coping Strategies, Cardiac Surgery Intensive Care Unit
