Abstract´╝Ü Objective To evaluate the impacts of health management on quality of life of patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).Methods Ninety COPD in-or out-patients were assigned to two groups according to visit date.The control group was treated with conventional therapy,and the observation group obtained conventional therapy + standard health management for 6 months.Cigarette smoking,6 MWT/m and The St George's Respiratory Questionnaire (SGRQ) were evaluated before and after the intervention.Results At 6 months,the ratio of current cigarette smoking of the observation group was much lower than that at baseline (x2=4.464,P<0.05),6 MWD/m was significantly increased (337.2±82.6 vs 372.0±76.3,t=-7.14,P=0.00),and the scores of respiratory symptoms,limitation of motion and influence of disease and total score of SGRQ were significantly reduced (t values were 6.15,5.18,4.70 and 5.07,respectively; all P<0.05).Conclusion Standard health management could decrease the rate of current cigarette smoking and improve exercise tolerance and the quality of life of COPD patients.
