To investigate the effects of breathing training on the anxiety status and sleep quality of patients after transsphenoidal pituitary tumor resection, one hundred and two patients with pituitary tumour in the Department of Neurosurgery of the Affiliated Hospital of Jining Medical College were selected as study subjects and randomly divided into a control group and a test group, with 51 cases in each group. The control group underwent routine nursing operations, while the experimental group added breathing training to the routine nursing operations. The study effects were analyzed by the scoring status and grade classification of SAS scale and PSQI scale. By introducing breathing training, the SAS scale and PSQI scale of the two groups were significantly different, and the test group was better than the control group in terms of anxiety status and sleep quality (p<0.05). Respiratory training has a significant positive effect on the anxiety status and sleep quality of patients after transsphenoidal pituitary tumour resection, providing a clinical case and reference value for postoperative care after transsphenoidal pituitary tumour removal.
