The intent of the investigation was to understand and describe what it is like to live as an Appalachian woman with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). In Southern Appalachia, culture, age, gender, and rural residence affect responses to illness and recovery (Rosswurm, 1996). The interaction between COPD and the individual’s psychological and behavioral attributes was an area of extensive research. However, the knowledge of the lived experience of Appalachian women with COPD was limited. The nature of the information sought was obtained through unstructured, open-ended, face-to-face interviews with a convenience sample of four Appalachian women with COPD. These interviews were tape-recorded and transcribed verbatim. Heideggerian hermeneutics was the method used to analyze and interpret these interviews through use of the seven step process designed by Diekelmann, Allen & Tanner (1989).
