Abstract: 

This is a clinical trial study was performed to assess the impact of position change on heart beat and respiratory rate in warfare victims with COPD. In this study 31 patients were rested in supine, semifowlers, prone, right and left lateral positions. And heart beat and respiratory rate measured by monitor & chronometer each 0, 5 and 15 min. The results of this study showed that position change to semifowlers at 0 and 15 minutes (P= 0.005) to left lateral at 0 and 5 min. (P = 0.004), lead to change pulse rate, also the comparison of various changes of position in the same time in supine, semifowlers positions were statistically significance (P = 0. 005), i.e. pulse rate increased when changed supine to semi fowlers position. Also, in various positional changes weren't effect on respiratory rate at least 15 minutes. In generally, we recommended that selecting position regarding to patients well being feeling.
