Assessment of postoperative cardiac pain management needs to be conducted to evaluate success in pain management after cardiac surgeries. Up to the present time, assessment of postoperative cardiac pain management has not been done in Indonesia. This study aims to determine the level of patient's satisfaction on pain management after having an open cardiac surgery at the first 24 hours post-extubation at Hasan Sadikin Hospital Bandung. A cross sectional study was conducted by using a questionnaire in the ICU of Hasan Sadikin Hospital Bandung from 18th June 2019 until 10th January 2020. The examination of patient satisfaction was carried out through the Indonesian-version of American Pain Society Patient Outcome Questionnaire Revised (APS-POQ-R). All 51 patients in that period agreed to participate in the study. The results showed that patients were satisfied (90.2%) and very satisfied (9,8%) with pain management in the first 24 hours after open cardiac surgery extubation at Hasan Sadikin Hospital. In summary, all patients were highly satisfied with pain management in the ICU of Dr. Hasan Sadikin General Hospital Bandung
