Abstract [en]

Introduction: Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a chronic disease that causes illness and death over the whole world. There are a little available data about COPD patients in Vietnam and how the disease affects their health related quality of life (HRQL).

Aim: The aim of this study was to examine HRQL among patients with COPD in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, and investigate differences in HRQL between men and women with COPD.

Method: This was a descriptive study with a cross-sectional design. The method was quantitative by using a questionnaire. The study was performed at the respiratory department at Cho Ray Hospital in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. The sampling was made through a consecutive sample. The questionnaire was based on Short Form 36 (SF-36) which is a widely used questionnaire to measure HRQL. The answers from the questionnaires were turned into a scale where 0 represent the lowest possible HRQL and 100 represent the highest possible HRQL.

Results: The results showed that patients with COPD have a low HRQL. Mean value for HRQL in the total group of respondents was 22.42.The result also showed that women suffering from COPD have a significant lower HRQL than men concerning total HRQL (P-value= 0.04), general health (P-value= 0.02) and pain (P-value= 0.05).

Conclusion: Patients suffering from COPD in Ho Chi Minh City have a low score of HRQL. Better routines and knowledge about the symptoms and caring for these patients are needed.
