Abstract

The purpose of this research was to compare Life Satisfaction in coronary artery patients and healthy individuals. It is an experimental control study. The experimental group was 50 men and women having coronary artery disease, referring to heart clinic in Motahari
Hospital located in Fooladshahr. The control group was healthy men and women living in three sites of Fooladshahr. Experimental and control group were similar regarding gender and they were all married. They were all selected by available sampling. The data was gathered using Feriseh’s Life Satisfaction Questionnaire. The evidence related to its
validity was studied by using simultaneous validity and to its reliability by cronbach’s alpha which were both accepted. Multi variable variance analysis, controlling age and education, showed that Life Satisfaction in experimental group was significantly lower than control group. Since, the results showed that Life Satisfaction was significantly lower in coronary artery patients in terms of factors like physical health, self- esteem, work, play, money, love, spouse are lower in heart chronic patients, it is understood that Life Satisfaction is a related factor to this disease. Also, the result clarified there were not significant differences in factors such as goals and values, learning, creativity, helping, children, relatives, home, neighborhood and community
