Effects of Nocturnal Non-invasive Ventilation on Energy Expenditure in Patients With Severe Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

It has been shown, that in patients with very severe chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) the additional use of non-invasive ventilation during pulmonary rehabilitation (PR) may enhance the benefits of PR. It is assumed that the non-invasive ventilation techniques provides a better recovery of the respiratory pump during the night. ...

Effects of Supplemental Oxygen Delivery Via Demand Versus Continuous Flow in Hypoxemic COPD Patients

The Principal Investigator will inform each patient about procedure, content and measurements of the study. It is obligatory that each patient participating in the study gives a written informed consent. Following an initial incremental shuttle walk test (ISWT) in order to determine the individual maximum capacity, patients will perform three ...

pCO2 Oscillations During Exercise: Relation to Cerebral Blood Flow and to Cognitive Dysfunction in COPD

Cerebral Blood Flow (CBF) regulation is crucial for the adequate oxygen supply to the brain and the sustenance of cerebrovascular reserve capacity. A fundamental physiologic regulator of CBF is the carbon dioxide partial pressure (pCO2), which determines the dilatation or contraction of cerebral vasculature. CBF regulation response has been found ...

Development of a MID for the 1-minute Sit-to-stand Test

In this study we develop the minimal important difference for the 1-minute sit-to-stand-test (STST) with an anchor-based method. First step of this study is to find out the differences in the number of repetitions during 1-minute STST, 6-minute walk distance and health-related quality of life from pre to post inpatient ...

The Effect of Non-invasive Ventilation on the Oxygenation of Peripheral Muscle in Hypercapnic COPD Patients

In this study patients will perform one incremental work rate test to obtain peak work rate. On the following days two constant work rate cycle endurance tests (CWRT) will be performed at 60% of Peak work rate using a randomised cross-over design. Between the two CWRTs there will be one ...

Non-invasive Ventilation in Patients With Interstitial Lung Disease - a Feasibility Study

The efficiency of non-invasive ventilation (NIV) in hypercapnic patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease during pulmonary rehabilitation has been shown in numerous studies. There is only a limited number of therapeutic options for patients with severely progressed interstitial lung disease (ILD). The question whether chronic hypercapnic ILD-patients are able to ...

End-of-Life Fear in Patients With End-Stage Lung Disease (COPD)

Background: COPD-related mortality differs markedly from that of other chronic diseases. While the mortality rates for heart disease and stroke have fallen significantly, death rates caused by COPD have more than doubled. Therefore there is a major need to address questions of palliative end-of-life care. Patients with end-stage pulmonary lung ...

Short-term Effects of Supplemental Oxygen in Patients With IPF

Rationale Exercise-induced desaturation is frequently observed in patients with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis and predicts poorer outcomes. However, prospective studies with larger sample sizes and those investigating the effect of oxygen on endurance time, oxygen saturation and breathing frequency during walking are lacking. Given that walking is the most important activity ...
