Objective: To explore the application effect of psychological support therapy in patients with COPD complicated with emotional disorders.
Methods: 72 cases of patients with COVID-19 complicated with emotional disorders admitted to Hainan General Hospital from January 2020 to March 2020 were selected as the study objects by convenient sampling method. The control group received routine treatment and nursing intervention, while the observation group received psychological support therapy on the basis of treatment for the control group. The percentage of FEV1 in the predicted value (FEV1), the ratio of FEV1 to forced vital capacity (FEV1/FVC), score in Hamilton Anxiety Scale (HAMA) and score in Hamilton Depression Scale (HAMD), score in COPD Assessment Test (CAT) and score in Modified Medical Research Council (mMRC) Dyspnea Scale, satisfaction degree and happiness degree were compared between the two groups before and after the intervention.
Results: After the intervention, the differences of FEV1% and FEV1/FVC between the two groups were not statistically significant (P>0.05). The HAMA score and HAMD score in the observation group were lower than those in the control group, and the difference was statistically significant (P<0.05). The CAT score and mMRC score in the observation group were lower than those in the control group, with statistically significant difference (P<0.05). The nursing satisfaction degree and happiness degree of the observation group were higher than those of the control group, with statistically significant difference (P<0.05). Conclusion: Psychological support therapy can alleviate the adverse emotions of patients with COPD complicated with emotional disorders effectively, improve the symptoms of dyspnea, improve the quality of life and happiness degree of patients, and improve the patient’s nursing satisfaction degree.
