Abstract

Lifestyle modification is one of the most cost-effective strategies in self-management and secondary prevention of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). However, the prevalence of healthy lifestyle behaviors in COPD patients in China remains unclear. The objective of this study was to examine the rates of healthy lifestyle behaviors including smoking cessation, regular exercise, and healthy diet in community population with COPD in China. We recruited 46,285 individuals aged 35-70 years from 115 urban and rural communities in 12 provinces of China from 2005 to 2009. We recorded the smoking status, physical activity intensity, and quality of diet for all spirometry-diagnosed COPD patients by standardized questionnaires. Among 3,690 individuals with COPD, 18.2% (95% confidence interval [CI], 13.0-24.9) quitted smoking, 27.1% (95% CI, 24.7-29.7) exercised often, and 34.8% (95% CI, 31.8-38.0) ate high-quality diet. More than half of the individuals followed one or less key healthy lifestyle, and only 8.4% (95% CI, 7.0-10.0) followed all of the three healthy behaviors. Urban residents had significant higher rates of smoking cessation (23.5% [95% CI, 17.3-31.1] vs 14.4% [95% CI, 9.9-20.5], p=0.0008), regular exercise (45.6% [95% CI, 42.4-48.8] vs 14.0% [95% CI, 12.1-16.2], p<0.0001), and healthy diet (38.5% [95% CI, 35.5-41.6] vs 32.2% [95% CI, 29.2-35.4], p=0.0013) than rural residents. Age, sex, education level, body mass index, respiratory symptoms, and family income were associated with healthy living, and the strength of associations varied between urban and rural areas. There is a large gap between the anticipated rate and the real participation in healthy lifestyle behaviors in Chinese adults with COPD, especially in rural communities. Simple and effective strategies are warranted to improve patients' lifestyle in China.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 2. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 27 November 2017.
All research outputs
#7,323,000
of 12,196,902 outputs
Outputs from International Journal of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease
#843
of 1,461 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#174,038
of 338,315 outputs
Outputs of similar age from International Journal of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease
#39
of 79 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 12,196,902 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 37th percentile – i.e., 37% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 1,461 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 4.9. This one is in the 37th percentile – i.e., 37% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 338,315 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 44th percentile – i.e., 44% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 79 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one is in the 44th percentile – i.e., 44% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
