signs measured at baseline.
Method: A quasi-experimental design with pre and post-intervention with a group control method. Sixty
subjects, divided to study and coronal group measurement of vital signs (Temperature, pulse, respiration and
blood pressure) done by researchers, by using a calibrated sphygmomanometer, mercury thermometer, and
done of four relaxation exercises include (deep breathing, leg relaxation exercise, arm relaxation exercise,
and face muscles relaxation exercise).
Results: The findings of research appear there is a significant difference between the study and control
sample in vital signs after applied relaxation techniques, and This table reveals the statistical significance
and high significance between study and control study for the physical parameter (vital signs) after applied
the relaxation technique.
Conclusions: The currents study concludes, some relaxation exercises such as (deep breathing, leg relaxation
exercise, arm relaxation exercise, and face muscle relaxation exercise) after application for a study group,
make a slight alteration in vital signs. And there is no significant association among the control group. The
