Sustaining Training Effects Through Physical Activity

This randomized control trial will investigate whether the implementation of a telecoaching program, initiated during pulmonary rehabilitation, is able to increase and maintain physical activity and general benefits until six months after rehabilitation discharge. After three months of pulmonary rehabilitation (3 times a week), patients with COPD will be randomized ...

Phase N/A

Pulmonary Rehab Dyspnea Walk and Step Testing in COPD

This is a multi-site collaborative study that will be done in the context of three Quebec hospitals' outpatient pulmonary rehabilitation programs: Montreal Chest Institute; University of Laval, and Hopital Sacre-Coeur Montreal. The objectives are two-fold. First, to determine the Minimal Clinical Important Difference in intensity ratings of perceived breathlessness for ...

Phase N/A

Noninvasive Positive Pressure Ventilation in Overlap Syndrome

Chronic obstructive pulmonary diseases (COPD) coexisting with obstructive sleep apnea is called overlap syndrome (OS). Patients with OS seem to have worse prognosis than patients with only one disorder. Noninvasive positive pressure ventilation is an efficient treatment in obstructive sleep apnea, but the effectiveness in improving outcomes of OS patients ...

Phase N/A

Long-term Physical Training in Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

Several impairing factors contribute to physical limitation in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) as deconditioning, muscle dysfunction and physical inactivity. The available literature clearly indicates that these therapeutic targets benefit from exercise training in patients with COPD and, currently, the key point is not whether patients should or not exercise, ...

Phase N/A

Tele Health Monitoring Service for Patients With Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

Telemedicine is a relatively new approach for the management of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) disease. Telemedicine, for monitoring disease exacerbation, is the focus area of our research. The patient monitoring offers the possibility of early initiation of treatment of patients who has evidence of COPD exacerbation or pulmonary infection. ...

Phase N/A

Effects of Upper-limb Training Addition to a Conventional ET Program on PA Level and ADL Performance.

Patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD; n=64) will be recruited by convenience and, thereafter, included in this randomized controlled clinical trial. The execution of all the procedures involved in this study will be performed at the Laboratory of Research in Respiratory Physiotherapy (LFIP), located at the University Hospital of ...

Phase N/A

Exercise Training in Severe COPD

Rehabilitation in-hospital program The rehabilitation program (RP) will start the day after the in-hospital admission and will be continuously supervised by a physiotherapist. The patients will use the drugs and the oxygen therapy prescribed. RP will include a training session on cycloergometer at constant load once a day (Group F1) ...

Phase N/A

The Efficacy of the AIRVO Warm Humidifier as an Add on to Oxygen Therapy

SPECIFIC AIMS/OBJECTIVES To determine whether the patients with chronic respiratory sufficiency can benefit from the AIRVO warm humidifier by decreasing the number of exacerbations. Furthermore, to determine the efficacy of warm humidification oxygen therapy compared to dry oxygen therapy, in short-term and long-term treatment of patients with stage II-IV COPD. ...

Phase N/A

Effects of Osteopathic Techniques on Residual Volume in Severe Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is characterized by progressive and not fully reversible airflow limitation in the bronchi. Hyperinflation is one of the most important pathophysiological mechanisms responsible for shortness of breath in COPD patients. Hyperinflation may be assessed in body pletysmography in which residual volume (RV) and total lung ...

Phase N/A

Exercise Training in Patients With Mild COPD

Peripheral muscle mass and function can be impaired in patients with mild chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Quadriceps cross-sectional area is reduced in these patients compared to controls [1], particularly in those with dyspnea as compared to non-dyspneic counterparts and smoker controls [2]. Reduced physical activity is closely related to ...
