Abstract Introduction: Anxiety are considered as survivors based on their new hair or new nasal nose and their aim is to study and evaluate them. Preoperative anxiety was measured in hospitalized patients in Peymanieh Hospital in Jahrom in year 2019. Methods: This descriptive cross-sectional study was performed on 209 hospitalized patients in Peymanieh Hospital of Jahrom in 2019. Data gathering tool was Spielberg's demographic information and anxiety questionnaire. Data were analyzed using descriptive and inferential statistical tests. Results: Mean trait anxiety was 44.96 ± 7.75 and mean state anxiety was 44.54 ± 8.17. There was a significant relationship between preoperative anxiety and age and marital status. There was no significant difference between mean trait anxiety and men and women (P = 0.391, P = .492). But there was a significant difference between the average trait anxiety and single and married individuals (P = 0.006, P = 0.024). Conclusion: The results of this study showed that pre-operative anxiety is not different in men and women, but it is more in single men than married people. Therefore, it is recommended to use various methods to educate patients and identify a well-designed educational program to eliminate the effective factors on anxiety.
