This is a project that will determine whether the use of daily bright light therapy has an effect on depressive symptoms experienced by adult inpatients with CF and COPD. The purpose of this project is to apply a daily 30-minute BLT intervention to hospitalized adult CF and COPD patients in order to decrease symptoms of depression as measured by depression inventory scoring.


This project will occur on a 29-bed pulmonary step-down unit at a 1,600-bed academic medical center. This unit commonly treats patients with CF, COPD, and other pulmonary complications. The unit's patient care staff will be educated on the bright light lamps in order to prevent interruptions and to encourage compliance.
