Objectives: I) to assess the level of blood pressure among patient with hypertension II) to evaluate the effectiveness of abdominal breathing exercise among patient with hypertension and III) to find out the association of level of blood pressure with selected demographic variables. Method: Experimental research design. Sample size was 30 in control and 30 samples in control group Results: the study findings revealed that Wilcoxon test value for systolic blood pressure was -4.344 and the Wilcoxon test value of Mean Arterial Pressure was -4.685 and the ‘p’ value was 0.000**. It was highly significant at p<0.001** level. It implies that abdominal breathing exercise was effective for reducing blood pressure level among people in experimental group. There is significant difference between pre-test and post-test assessment of blood pressure. Conclusion: Abdominal breathing exercise is effective in maintaining normal blood pressure.
