Introduction
Patients do not feel competent in managing their post-heart surgery processes. They need access to the right information to manage their symptoms. A mobile app is the right tool for this process, with its accessibility and reminder features at any time. We investigated the effects of 4-week mobile app training on respiratory functions and maintenance of drug compliance in patients after heart surgery.

Material and methods
This paper reported the findings of an experimental study, which recruited a total of 120 participants of whom all underwent heart surgery. The following outcomes were measured: TriFlo results, the Morisky Questionnaire – self-reported measure of adherence, and results of the Symptom Interpretation Questionnaire.

Results
All groups showed a significant difference in Symptom Interpretation Scale subscales after using the mobile app. When the results of the research are evaluated, it can be said that there is a need for nurses to produce new-generation technological equipment to meet the needs of new products to be used in the field of health.

Conclusions
Individuals can solve their post-operative symptom management problems with a mobile app. The use of a mobile app positively contributes to the management of the 2 most common symptoms after heart surgery. Mobile apps are used in many disease processes in the world. The results of these studies contribute to the limited information presenting results regarding drug compliance and lung capacity in patients with a bypass between mobile apps.
