To explore the effect of mindfulness decompression on negative emotion, cognitive bias and treatment compliance in patients with coronary heart disease. 200 patients with coronary heart disease in Liaoning Provincial People's hospital were selected for screening. 150 patients met the inclusion criteria, and the invalid data were removed again. They were randomly divided into intervention group and control group, 20 in each group. The control group received routine treatment, examination, nursing, health education, telephone follow-up was the same as the intervention group, but did not receive mindfulness training guidance. The patients in the intervention group began mindfulness training 8 weeks before discharge. Results: in general, there was no statistical difference between the two groups (P>0.05). In the baseline comparison of anxiety and depression, there was no significant difference in the scores of hospital anxiety and depression scale, anxiety subscale, depression subscale and the proportion of anxiety or depression patients before intervention between the two groups (P>0.5). In the comparison of anxiety and depression before and after the intervention, the number of anxiety patients in the experimental group decreased from 16 to 9, and the number of depression patients decreased from 12 to 7. However, there was no statistical difference in the proportion of patients with anxiety and depression. To observe the effect of mindfulness decompression treatment, the pressure level of experimental group after intervention was significantly lower than before (P=0.001). Mindfulness decompression therapy can significantly improve the quality of life of patients with coronary heart disease anxiety after discharge, improve the happiness index of patients, reduce negative emotions, cognitive bias and treatment compliance, and provide a reference for future clinical application.
