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 ...

Effects of Different Oxygen Devices in Hypoxemic COPD Patients

Taken recent literature together, there is a sufficient number of trials investigating the effect of different oxygen devices. However, studies comparing oxygen delivery via portable oxygen concentrator (POC) and liquid oxygen device (LOD) with appropriate exercise testing and sufficient power are missing. Given that walking is the most important activity ...

Effects of Oxymizer Pendant Cannula Versus Conventional Nasal Cannula During Endurance Shuttle Walk Tests in Hypoxemic Patients With Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis

Patients will be recruited during an inpatient pulmonary rehabilitation program. They will perform three shuttle walk tests on three consecutive days (see below). While performing those tests, the patient's prescribed oxygen flow rate is applicated either through the conventional nasal cannula (CNC) or the Oxymizer.On the first day, patients perform ...

Effects of Pulmonary Rehabilitation on Skeletal Muscle in COPD Patients

In a former study, the investigator observed significant differences in the response to pulmonary rehabilitation between COPD patients with the "normal" genetic variant of alpha-1 antitrypsin (PiMM) and those with a homozygous deficient variant (PiZZ) (Jarosch et al., 2016, DOI: 10.1159/000449509). PiZZ COPD patients showed less improvement in exercise capacity ...

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 ...

The Effect of Reflective Breathing Therapy Compared With Conventional Breathing Therapy in Patients With Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) III-IV; part2

The purpose of this study is to determine whether different types of breathing therapies in patients with COPD III-IV decrease dyspnea, increase activity and have impact on parasympathetic activities.

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 ...
