Abstract
Purpose: To exam the effectiveness of walking exercises in improving the subjective and objective sleep quality in patients with lung cancer. Patients and Methods: One hundred and eleven patients were randomly assigned to either walking-exercise group (n = 56) or usualcare group (n = 55). We conducted a 12-week exercise program that comprised home-based walking (moderate-intensity, 40 min/day, 3 day/week) and weekly exercise counselling. The outcome measures included an actigraph to measure the objective sleep (total sleep time, TST; sleep efficiency, SE). The Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index (PSQI) was used to measure the subjective sleep. Results: The PSQI (Wald χ2 = 15.16, P = .001) and TST (Wald χ2 = 7.59, P = .023) of patients in the exercise group significantly improved at 3rd month and 6th month after the exercise program compared to that of participants in the usual-care group. Conclusion: The home-based walking exercise program is a feasible and effective intervention for subjective and objective sleep quality in lung cancer survivors and can be considered as an essential component of lung cancer rehabilitation.
