The Study Design is Randomized Controlled Trial. Three groups involved in this study are: (1) Intervention group (2) Placebo group (3) wait-listed group. Sample size: 25 patients in intervention and placebo group and 30 in wait-listed group. Tools used in the study: Anxiety Scale, Pulse Oximeter. Study Procedure: In this phase, data collection was done based on guidelines on randomized controlled trial. Sequence generation was done using a computer based program. Allocation concealment was achieved using Sequentially Numbered, Opaque, Sealed Envelopes (SNOSE) to avoid deciphering. The participants were blinded regarding the arm to which they were allocated. Informed Consent and sociodemographic data was obtained from the participant Comparison of the pre and post an iety of patients in intervention and placebo group indicates that there is a significant decrease in anxiety levels of patients in intervention Compared to that of placebo group.Comparison of pre and post pulse of patients in intervention and placebo group indicates that there is no statistically significant change in the pulse readings. Comparsion of pre and post oxygen saturation level in patients in intervention and placebo group which indicates that there is no statistically significant change in the oxygen saturation level after intervention group as compared to placebo group.
