It is known that anxiety is one of the comorbidities in pts with COPD and it has a negative impact on the pts' condition.

Aim: to study the severity of anxiety in COPD pts and it's correlation with severity of symtoms of COPD.

Materials and methods: we studied two groups of pts: main group 110 COPD pts GOLD 1-4 (age 63,50,9 yrs, males 93 (84,63,5%)) and control group 15 pts without any clinically relevant diseases ((age 60,22,3 yrs (p=0,184), males 13 (86,88,8%) (p=0,817)). Measurements included clinical status, spirometry, mMRC and CAT scales, the State-trait anxiety inventory (STAI) for detection of anxiety.

Results: it was detected that level of state anxiety in main group and in control group was not significantly different (40,20,9 and 37,72,5 resp. (p=0,328)). The level of trait anxiety in the main group and in control group was not significantly different (44,80,8 and 41,52,2 resp. (p=0,157)) also.
At the same time, it was revealed that in the main group the level of state anxiety correlated with the level of dyspnea due to mMRC (p=0,005), level of COPD symptoms due to CAT (p<0,001), but did not correlate with the level of FEV1 (p=0,427). The level of trait anxiety in the same group correlated with the level of dyspnea due to mMRC (p=0,019), level of COPD symptoms due to CAT (p<0,001), but did not correlate with the level of FEV1 (p=0,790).

Conclusion: the severity of state and trait anxiety is not different in COPD pts and in healthy pts of the same age. The severity of state and trait anxiety is more related with the severity of symptoms of COPD than with the degree of airflow limitation.
