The investigators aimed to compare the home-based Pulmonary Rehabilitation with the hospital-based pulmonary rehabilitation in terms of pulmonary rehabilitation efficiency in patient with bronchiectasis.


While the benefits of pulmonary rehabilitation (PR) in cases of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) have been well-documented, there have been only a limited number of studies investigating the efficacy of PR in patients with bronchiectasis. Some of these studies have reported positive effects of PR also in bronchiectasis patients, but have underlined the need for additional studies including larger patient groups to define PR indications, and to ensure that exercise protocols are specific for this patient group. There are many PR organizational types, such as hospital-based, telephone-mentoring with home-based or tele monitorization programs. Hospital-based supervised programs are time-consuming and costly practices. For this reason, there is a need for further studies on the effectiveness and benefits of unsupervised programs. In this study, we will compare unsupervised home-based PR and supervised hospital-based PR in terms of pulmonary rehabilitation effectiveness.

The pulmonary function tests, dyspnea perception, quality of life and exercise capacity assessments will performed before and after pulmonary rehabilitation.
