AbstractAbstract PDF
PURPOSE
The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of cardiopulmonary symptoms and sleep on fatigue in pneumoconiosis patients.
METHODS
Self-administered questionnaires were given to 211 neumoconiosis patients during the period from May 12 to May 20, 2010.
RESULTS
The mean score of fatigue was as high as 6.7. The level of fatigue depended on the subjects' leisure activity and complication. Fatigue was significantly correlated with cardiopulmonary symptoms and sleep. The influential factors affecting fatigue were cardiopulmonary symptoms, complication, sleep and leisure activity, which explained about 46.5% of the variance.
CONCLUSION
The results of this study indicate that nursing interventions are needed to reduce fatigue and to improve cardiopulmonary symptoms and insomnia in pneumoconiosis patients.
