AbstractHypertension is a neglected health issue and a silent killer which affects almost all the vital systems of the human body. There are primary and secondary causes for hypertension. Factors like stress ,food habits and life style can also trigger hypertension. Yoga is an ancient practice followed by the human kind for attaining peace and health .OM chanting which is a part of yoga is considered as the prominent and significant method of calming the body both physically and mentally. OM chanting is a type of pranayama known to have positive effects on hypertension. In the stressful COVID-19 induced lockdown and pandemic scenario , it is essential to calm the mind and the body to effectively reduce the blood pressure. Hence a study was conducted among 30 hypertensive patients by asking them to perform OM chanting twice a day for 15 days. Pre and post interventions values of blood pressure, pulse rate and oxygen saturation was collected from the study participants. Om chanting was found to be significantly effective in lowering blood pressure and improving the pulse rate and oxygen saturation in hypertension.
