Resistance Training to Prehabilitate Patients With Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

Skeletal muscle dysfunction is common in patients with COPD and has been recognized as a contributing factor to reduced exercise capacity, health related quality of life and increased mortality associated with this disease. Several structural changes in the limb muscles of patients have previously been reported and have been linked ...

Phase N/A

Food Reward in Cachexia Induced by Acute or Chronic Disease

The activity in the food reward-circuitry of the brain in patients suffering from cachexia induced by cancer (lung cancer or pancreatic cancer) or chronic disease (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) will be analysed by using functional magnetic resonance imaging. In addition, the role of the peripheral satiety hormones will be evaluated.

Phase N/A

Early Pulmonary Rehabilitation in Exacerbated COPD Patients

Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is characterized by chronic and progressive airflow limitations and subjects with COPD also experience exacerbations characterized by the worsening of respiratory symptoms. It's necessary medical intervention, changes in regular medication, and the use of antibiotics and/or corticosteroids followed or not by hospitalization. The exacerbations contribute ...

Phase N/A

Early Detection of COPD Patients in GOLD 0 (Smokers) Population

Even though the main risk factor for the development of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is smoking only in less than one third of the smokers the clinically manifest COPD will develop. The disease progressive nature with high disability and mortality especially in the final stages makes it plausible to ...

Phase N/A

LVR in Severe Emphysema Using Bronchoscopic Autologous Blood Instillation in Combination With Intra-bronchial Valves

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is an umbrella term encompassing two entities causing progressive and ultimately disabling breathlessness. Emphysema is a process destructive of the airspaces distal to the terminal bronchioles, with loss of gas exchange tissue, of elastic recoil and of circumferential tethering of the small airways leading to ...

Phase N/A

Registry for Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease With Pulmonary Thromboembolism in China

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is closely related to venous thromboembolism (VTE). But it is difficult to identify VTE in COPD patients in clinical practice. Therefore, the prevalence data of PTE in COPD is limited. Pulmonary thromboembolism (PTE) is an important factor effecting patients outcomes, but existing researches only have ...

Phase N/A

Obstructive Airways Diseases in Pulmonary Clinic (OADPC) Study

This is an observational study which aims to evaluate the possibility of using data from a capnography device to assess obstructive airway severity in both COPD and Asthma patients. The study will include adult asthma and COPD patients (age >18). Patients will be enrolled on a continuous basis and will ...

Phase N/A

High Flow Nasal Cannula During Pulmonary Rehabilitation

Pulmonary Rehabilitation is one of the most recommended methods to improve the muscle function of COPD patients. By exercise training, even patients with severe COPD can increase muscle strength, improve skeletal muscle function and enhance exercise endurance. Due to improvements in exercise endurance, when exercising at a higher intensity, ventilation ...

Phase N/A

New Technology to Assess Treatment for Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)

First, the investigators will image patients with hyperpolarized xenon (Xe) magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to develop the technique of hyperpolarized xenon MRI at the University of Virginia (UVA). Magnetic Resonance (MR) sequences will need to be developed and optimized for the equipment at UVA. These sequences will need to be ...

Phase N/A

Potentially Avoidable Hospitalisation in France

Potentially Avoidable Hospitalizations (Pah) Are Studied As An Indirect Measure Of Access To Primary Care And Of The Interface Between Primary And Secondary Care. A Previous Work Unveils Considerable Geographic Variation In The Rate Of Pah In France And Suggest That Primary Care Organization Might Play A Role In This ...
