This pilot study was undertaken to investigate the effect of pulmonary rehabilitation on depression in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Research suggests that patients with COPD often experience depression because of a loss of exercise capacity and functional ability. Improvement in exercise capacity and functional ability should reduce depression and improve quality of life. The sample consisted of 24 subjects with a diagnosis of COPD. Subjects were tested prior to,immediately following and at four months following PR using the 12-minute walking test (12MD), the Centers for Epidemiologic Studies Depression Scale (CES-D), and the Saint George's Respiratory Questionnaire (SGRQ). Results showed a significant decrease in depression as measured by the CES-D and a significant improvement in scores on the SGRQ immediately following PR. Only scores on the SGRQ remained significantly improved at the 4-month follow-up. CES-D scores significantly correlated with scores on the SGRQ. Lower depression scores correlated with improved scores on symptoms, activity, and impact measured by the SGRQ, but not with exercise capacity measured by the 12MD. In this study PR reduced depression in patients with COPD. Further study is required to determine the impact of improved exercise capacity on depression in patients with COPD.
