Interviewed data were analysed by using Colaizzi’s framework analysis. Results: The study findings revealed that the participants had unique expectations about coronary angiography. The experiences of the patients vary depending on age, their role in the family, occupation, financial status, social and family support system. The association was found between the educational status, occupation and the socio economic status of the patients through the lived experiences. Conclusion: Patients who underwent CAG have diverse expectations from the angiography procedure and the health care team. Nurses, as the key member of medical team, should include these expectations in their routine care program and assist the patients to have better life adaptability. Sensitivity to the patient’s expectations and assisting them results in higher awareness and less psychological problems.
