Abstract

OBJECTIVE:
To investigate psychological distress, quality of life, and satisfaction with medical support of patients with COPD and their spouses.

METHOD:
Questionnaires concerning psychological distress and quality of life were sent by mail to 97 patients and 54 spouses (43 couples).

RESULTS:
We found increased scores of anxiety and depression. In terms of quality of life the patients reported significantly lower scores than their spouses. Patients as well as their spouses reported a high satisfaction about the given medical support.

CONCLUSION:
Spouses of COPD patients are at increased risk for psychiatric morbidity und should therefore be included regularly in care programs.

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
