Learning Objective 1: The findings will help the clinical staffs to be aware of the problem on sleep disturbance with COPD.
Learning Objective 2: The optimal goal will develop the guideline with non-pharmacy therapy to improve sleep quality for COPD patients to improve sleep quality.
The purpose of this study will investigate the relationships between exercise behavior and sleep quality and their related factors among COPD patients.
The cross-sectional and descriptive designed will be used in the study. A total 0f 114 of patients with chronic pulmonary obstruction disease were recruited from chest outpatient department in two teaching hospitals in Taipei City. The structured questionnaires including demographics and disease characteristics, exercise behavior, CPSQI and Beck Depression Inventory- Second Edition (BDI-II) will be used to collect data. The descriptive and inference statistics including frequency, percentage, mean and standard deviation, chi-square and Logistic Regression will be used to analyze the data. P <0.05 will be considered as the statistically significant level.
Among our 114 patients, 101(88.6%) were male and 13(11.4%) were female. A total of 26.3% had poor sleep quality. A total 48.3% had regular physical activity. The most common type of exercise in which patients with chronic pulmonary obstruction disease was walking. There was significant correlation among of the socioeconomic and BDI-II. The relationship between patients with chronic obstruct pulmonary disease’s exercise and sleep quality was no significant.
The findings will help the clinical staffs to be aware of the problem on sleep disturbance with COPD. The optimal goal will use the findings as the reference to develop the guideline with non-pharmacy therapy to improve sleep quality for COPD patients to improve sleep quality.
