Abstract

PURPOSE:

We aimed to investigate the frequency of major depression (MD) in long-term oxygen therapy (LTOT) dependent chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) patients and the effect of depression on patients' compliance with the treatment.

DESIGN AND METHODS:

Fifty-four consecutive patients were enrolled in the study and diagnosed as stage 4 COPD according to Global Initiative for Chronic Obstructive Lung Disease guideline. MD was diagnosed with the Structured Clinical Interview for the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fourth Edition/Clinical Version.

FINDINGS:

Thirty-four (63.0%) patients had MD. MD frequency was significantly higher in patients who were noncompliant with LTOT compared with compliant patients.

PRACTICE IMPLICATIONS:

MD is a common psychiatric disorder in COPD patients receiving LTOT.
