COPD symptoms linked to depression

  • Comment

Breathlessness is associated with symptoms such as depression, anxiety, fatigue, sleeping difficulties and pain, according to Norwegian researchers.

They said there was previously a lack of knowledge about possible associations between symptoms in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) patients.

154 COPD patients were assessed over the period of a year and a half.

The researchers have suggested that there is a need for an expanded focus on symptoms in COPD guidelines.
