Pulmonary rehabilitation is a comprehensive intervention for patients with chronic respiratory diseases who are symptomatic and often decreased life activities. Pulmonary rehabilitation reduces hospitalization among patients who have repeated exacerbation. This study is used to assess the role of pulmonary rehabilitation in COPD patients.
MATERIALS AND METHOD
This is a hospital-based randomized case-control study, conducted in 66 clinically diagnosed COPD patients in Sarojini Naidu medical college, Agra to assess the role of pulmonary rehabilitation in COPD patients is assessed by 6minute walk test, St George Respiratory Questionnaire[SGRP] and Modified Borg Scale[RPE scale]
The change in decline in [PRE 6MWT] observed between the case and control group was significant [p=0] ] The change in decline in [POST 6MWT] observed between the case and control group was significant [p=0]. The SGRQ was noticed to be decreased in both groups. The change in decline in SGRQ observed between the case and control group was significant [p=0].
In conclusion, pulmonary rehabilitation is new hope for the patient with COPD. It is a treatment that reduces dyspnea and increases activities of daily living, exercise tolerance, exercise capacity and better quality of life.
