Background and Aims The family members of patients experience a high level of anxiety during the patient’s CABG  surgery. Information sharing with family members about the patient’s condition during surgery can reduce their anxiety. The present study was conducted to compare the effect of information sharing with electric boards and mobile phones on the anxiety of family members of patients undergoing CABG surgery.
Methods  This randomized controlled trial was conducted on 80 family members of patients undergoing CABG surgery. The intervention group was provided with information sharing using a mobile phone during the patient’s surgery. The control group received their patient’s information on electric patient tracking board inserted on the operating room wall. The study participants’ anxiety was evaluated using the Spielberger State-Trait Anxiety Inventory (STAI), before and after the interventions. The obtained data were analyzed in SPSS using descriptive and analytical statistics. 
Results Before conducting the interventions, the mean±SD scores of anxiety were 49.03±12.82 and 47.80±10.41 in the test and control groups; the two study groups had no significant difference in this regard. After the interventions, the mean score of anxiety significantly reduced in the intervention group; however, no significant change was observed in the controls in this area. Additionally, the mean changes in anxiety score in the intervention group were significantly higher than the controls (P≤0.5). 
Conclusion According to the achieved results, informational support for the family members of patients can reduce their anxiety during their patients’ surgery procedure.
