undergoing coronary artery bypass grafting’ surgery.

subjects regarding a satisfactory level of total knowledge post implementation the educational guidelines
at P value < 0.001,while there were highly statistically differences between the control and the study group
subjects regarding the lifestyle behaviors post implementation of the educational guidelines at P< 0.001.
