Subjective fatigue is a common problem for people with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease but little is known about its nature in people with this disease. In this study subjective fatigue, dyspnea, associated variables and functional performance will be examined in a group of people with COPD. A sample of 150 people age 45 years and older with moderate to severe COPD will be interviewed by phone, perform spirometry testing and complete a questionnaire. The specific aims are 1) to describe characteristics of fatigue in people with COPD ; 2) to test a theoretically and empirically supported model of the relationships among subjective fatigue and dyspnea, functional performance, anxiety, depression and sleep quality in people with COPD. A model of fatigue is proposed based on research of subjective fatigue in chronic diseases and the theory of unpleasant symptoms (Lenz, Pugh, Milligan, Gift, & Suppe, 1997; Lenz, Suppe, Gift, Pugh, & Milligan, 1995). Currently 65 people are enrolled in the study and have returned the completed questionnaire. By fall, 2001 we will have enrolled the remaining participants and data collection will be complete. Multiple regression and path analysis will be used to examine the relationships among variables in the model. We anticipate that researchers and clinicians will use knowledge derived from this study to develop interventions that will minimize fatigue and its effects in people with COPD.
