PURPOSE: The aims of the study were to determine the sleep status, to examine the factors that affect sleep and to investigate the effects of sleep quality on quality of life.

METHODS: 54 stable COPD patients with a disease duration at least 1 year and 30 healty volunteers were included. A questionnaire that include social demographic data, sleep quality and configuration(Epworth Sleepiness Scale-ESS and Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index-PSQI), and quality of life(St George’s Respiratory Questionnaire-SGRQ) was applied to each patient. After approval of ethical commitee, the study began.

RESULTS: There was 51 male(94,4%) and mean age was 61,88±9.38 years in patient group, in healthy group there was 20 male(66,6%) and mean age was 62.26±8.32 years.There was no difference between patient and healthy group according to total ESS and PSQI scores(p=0,108, p=0,233respectively). In patient group mean disease duration was 1.92±0.88 years.A significant relation between disease duration and quality of life was found(p=0,004) but a similar finding was not seen between disease duration and ESS and PSQI scores(p>0,05). In patient group there was a correlation between quality of life scores and PSQI scores(p=0,000) but no correlation was observed between quality of life scores and ESS score(p=0,131).There was relation between COPD disease stage and quality of sleep and quality of life(p=0,002, p=0,000 respectively).

CONCLUSIONS: With disease progression sleep quality and quality of life was worsened in patients with COPD.Also relation between sleep quality and quality of life was observed. When COPD patient is assessed we should take into consideration the effect of sleep quality on quality life.

CLINICAL IMPLICATIONS: Disease progression in COPD patients effect the sleep quality
