Introduction: To study the effect of relaxation training combined with aerobic exercise on cardiopulmonary function in elderly patients with lung cancer. 

Materials and methods: A total of 74 elderly patients with lung cancer treated in our hospital in recent two years (January 2019 December2020) were selected. According to different intervention measures, they were divided into control group (n = 37, routine intervention method) and observation group (n = 37, relaxation training combined with aerobic exercise intervention method). The cardiac function test indexes, pulmonary function test indexes, quality of life test indexes, negative emotion test indexes and the total satisfaction rate of intervention were compared between the two groups before and after different intervention measures. 

Results: There was no significant difference between the two groups in cardiac function, pulmonary function, quality of life and negative emotion before intervention (P > 0.05); Compared with the data of the control group after intervention, the indexes of cardiac function, pulmonary function and quality of life in the observation group were higher, and the indexes of negative emotion were lower. There were differences between the groups (P < 0.05). In addition, the comparison of the total satisfaction rate of the two groups suggests that the index data of the observation group is significantly better than that of the control group (P < 0.05). 

Conclusion: Relaxation training combined with aerobic exercise has a significant impact on the cardiopulmonary function of elderly patients with lung cancer, which can improve the body's cardiac and pulmonary function. In addition, this measure can also improve the quality of life and negative emotions of patients, and increase the satisfaction of patients. It is worthy of extensive promotion and application in the intervention of elderly patients with lung cancer.
