Methods: Samples had been chosen purposefully from 8 women and 10 men who were under open heart surgery in three centers of educational hospitals of Tehran in 2012. Data were collected through unstructured interviews. With qualitative approach of analyzing the content of Graneheim&Lundman 2004had been analyzed. Results: From analyzing data three themes including Stuckat thecrossroadsof deaththreats, seeking a way to stay and forced to compromise with the situation had been emerged. Themes and subthemes indicate anxieties and strategies of the patients in hospital environment. Conclusion: Facing several stressful factors during care period and not meeting physical, psychological and educational needs lead to feeling fear and threat in the patients. Patients’ attempt in these adverse care conditions is self-protection with using different strategies. So real identification of patients’ needs and anxieties is very important in clinical nurses’ care planning.
