The article discusses the behavioral approaches in cardiopulmonary rehabilitation. With few exceptions, the preponderance of research suggests that psychosocial factors such as depression, anxiety, social support, stress, anger, emotional expression and competitiveness all contribute to cardiopulmonary disease. Recently there has been a trend toward promoting psychosocial quality of life in cardiopulmonary patients.
