Surgery is always a great experience for both the patient and his family and anxiety is a natural reaction to it. Preoperational anxiety stimulates the sympathetic, parasympathetic, and endocrine systems causing an increase in the heart rate, blood pressure, and heart excitability and arrhythmia. It causes more dosage of anti-anxiety and analgesic which can reduce blood circulation and breathing.
