This study examined physiological and psychological outcomes after a 12-week pulmonary rehabilitation program. Sample: 54 adults with chronic lung disease: 22 male, 32 female; Married - 54% ; mean age - 69.6 yrs; 72% - Emphysema ; 90% - 2-5 comorbidities; PFTs: mean FEV1: 1.2 + 0.5 L; mean FVC: 2.1 + 0.6 L Smoking history: 35 + 18 years. Functional needs: 72% - housework, 61% - grocery shopping, 52 %- cooking. Oxygen (2 L) was used at home by 37% (20% continuously). Functional outcomes were assessed using the Pulmonary Functional Status Scale (PFSS)(Weaver & Narsavage, JCR, 1998; 18:105-111). No significant difference in Daily Activities/ Social Functioning found at 12 weeks; Psychological Functioning (PF) approached significance (p=.073). Control/commitment components of hardiness significantly correlated with PF. FEV1 and FVC changes were NS. Significant physiological changes were: resting heart rate; (p=.03),­MET level (p=.003), and ­exercise time (p=.027). Years smoked predicted 37.9% of the variance in MET level changes at the end of the 12-week program (F=10.161; p=.007). This research supports including both physiological and psychological measures in evaluating rehabilitation program effects. Effects of smoking history and studies of long term effects of rehabilitation programs are needed.
