Abstract

Symptoms of 63 advanced lung cancer patients who died in National Sanyo Hospital were studied during their terminal stage. Median age was 71 years old and only 41% of all patients received best supportive care. The most common symptoms were anorexia (92%), dyspnea (91%), general fatigue (86%), constipation (68%), pain (65%), insomnia (65%), and rattling (57%). Anorexia and pain were most frequent at 14 days before death, and dyspnea was most frequent at 7 days before death. Dyspnea and pain were observed in 30% of all patients on the day of death.
