Abstract (type = abstract)
Background: Asthma is one of the most common chronic diseases that affect the airways in the lungs causing inflammation due to reacting to any infection or trigger that stimulate the asthma attack. Such a disease might be able to affect the health-related quality of life (HRQoL) including: activity limitations, physical health, and mental health of these adult patients in certain ways. Objectives: Since there is no clear research or study that gave an integrated comprehensive view of the impact of asthma along with different associated factors including: behavioral factors (smoking, frequency of smoking and quitting, exercise, health-routine checkup, and alcohol use), clinical factors (obesity, depressive disorder, diabetes, influenza and pneumonia vaccines), and socioeconomic factors (stress, healthcare coverage, income and education level) on HRQoL in adult patients in the United States, the overall goal of this research is designed to investigate this impact. Methodology: Data of this research is obtained from Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS) 2014. Different statistical procedures and methods including: extracting data, descriptive analysis, inferential analysis, and predictive analysis would be preformed by using Statistical Analysis System Software (SAS) 9.4. Results: adult patients of asthma have activity limitations by 64.90%, physical health problems by 163.40%, and mental health problems by 163.53% more than adult healthy people. Smoking limits activity by 116.18% as well as increases physical and mental health problems by 19.12% and 40.41%. Also, other behavioral factors play great roles in HRQoL in adult patients of asthma. Obesity limits activity by 73.57% as well as increases physical and mental health problems by 41.50% and 17.20%. Also, other clinical factors play great roles in HRQoL in adult patients of asthma. Stress limits activity by 188.52% as well as increases physical and mental health problems by 90.17% and 157.20%. Also, other clinical factors play great roles in HRQoL in adult patients of asthma. Conclusion: Even if there are few associated factors that improve HRQoL in adult patients of asthma, the majority of these factors worsen HRQoL. Finally, it can be confirmed that these associated factors along with asthma can lead to poorer HRQoL in adult patients of asthma in the United States.
