To measure the effect of an informational video intervention (IVI) compared to standard care (SC) preparation on anxiety and satisfaction prior to percutaneous cardiovascular procedure (PCVP). A quasi-experimental, randomized, prepost design was used to measure the effect of IVI, provided pre-PCVP, compared with SC only preparation on admission anxiety compared with post the IVI and SC preparation. There were 113 males/72 females, mean age of 61.8 years, assigned to IVI (n = 94) or SC group (n = 91). After the preparatory information session, there was no difference between groups on state anxiety (37.6 ± 11.7 vs. 36.3 ± 10.7; z = −.500, p = .617). There was a significant improvement in satisfaction in IVI group (54.23 ± 5.5 vs. 50.7 ± 6.6 (z = −2.9, p = .003). IVI session improved satisfaction with preparation. Viewing the IVI within hours of a PCVP did not reduce measurable anxiety. Further research may reveal a more ideal viewing time.
