Study Description
Brief Summary:
The goal for COPD patients in pulmonary rehabilitation programs is to improve the quality of life. COPD is known to be worse at night as are other respiratory problems such as CHF. Saturation is known to get worse nocturnally as well. Furthermore, these COPD rehabilitation patients tend to be older and increasing age is associated with an increase in the incidence of sleep disorders. We suspect that there is an increase in the incidence of sleep disorders in COPD patients. We plan to further study these patients using questionnaires. A preliminary study was done, but the results were not comparable to national statistics. We plan to repeat the study, only changing the questions to a format comparable to data from the National Sleep Foundation.
