The aim of this study is to investigate the efficacy of non-invasive ventilation (NIV) on nocturnal hypoventilation in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) who are on long term oxygen therapy (LTOT) at home.
A prospective, multicenter study including a cross-section validation to define sensitivity and specificity of CAPTURE to identify previously undiagnosed patients with clinically significant Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), and its impact on clinical care across a broad range of primary care settings in a cluster randomized controlled clinical trial.
A prospective multi-center study to define the sensitivity and specificity of CAPTURE for identifying previously undiagnosed patients with clinically significant COPD in a broad range of primary care settings.
Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is a preventable respiratory characterized by airflow obstruction that is not fully reversible. This disease a major cause of mortality worldwide. It is projected to rank the third-leading cause of death in 2020. The objective of this study is to examine the effects of a physical therapy intervention in stable patients with COPD.
This project compares two models of the Serious Illness Care Program (SICP) in primary care: clinician-focused SICP and team-based SICP. Discussion and planning for serious illness care can help patients identify what is most important to them and assure they receive care that best matches their goals and values, such as spending more time at home or not being in pain.
A Phase 3b, 42-day, Randomized, Double-Blind, Placebo−Controlled, Parallel Group Study to Evaluate the Safety and Tolerability of Nebulized Revefenacin and Nebulized Formoterol Fumarate (PERFOROMIST®) Administered in Sequence and as a Combined Solution in Subjects with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease
The aim of the study is to assess the safety of inhaled SNG001 and the ability of inhaled SNG001 to 'switch on' the cells' anti-viral defences in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). The study consist of two parts. Part 1 will assess the safety of inhaled SNG001 in ten patients with stable COPD. Part 2 will assess efficacy and safety of inhaled SNG001 in 80 patients with COPD with a cold or COPD exacerbation.
Introduction In order to guarantee chronic patients and elderly a high quality service from health care organizations in the coming decades, new technologies have been implemented to treat patients from a distance. There is still a need for more studies on the efficacy and cost-effectiveness of tele-rehabilitation (TR) and its long-term effects needs also to be determined. To guarantee individuals with chronic obstructive pulmonary diseases (COPD) a high quality service from health care organizations in the coming decades and economically save the national health systems for an expensive bill for the treatment of COPD, new actions plans has to be taken into use. Hereby, more patients can be treated with less human resources while still sustaining or even improving today's services. The importance of such welfare action plans has to maintain a high quality of service that individuals with COPD are willing to accept. Here, TR seems to be a good welfare action plans. Despite proof of improved cost-effectiveness, no studies support the benefits of TR in COPD patient with respect to adherence, security, treatment efficacy and improved quality of life. Aim To assess and compare the feasibility and effect of a tele-rehabilitation program with a new and innovative TR platform (NITRP) compared to standard treatment with respect to exercise capacity, quality of life and activities of daily living in patients with COPD. Method and material The study is a prospective randomized controlled trial comparing the effects of tele-rehabilitation and conventional rehabilitation in patients with severe COPD. 54 patients fulfilling the inclusion criteria will be randomized in two groups to either a 8 week tele-rehabilitation program or a conventional COPD rehabilitation program at the hospital. Participants will be tested at baseline, 8 weeks, 3 and 6 months after cessation of the training programs. In the intervention group, a real- and a virtual physiotherapist agent will facilitate the rehabilitation. Ethical considerations This study will not pose any risk to the patient as compared to current practice. Participation is voluntary and the patient may at any time withdraw from the study without consequences for future care or treatment. The questionnaires and the test methods used are clinically recognized instruments. Signed informed consent will be obtained from the all participants after verbal and written information and before the study starts. The study will not be initiated before approval from the Ethics Committee and the Data Protection Agency has been obtained. The study will follow the general research ethical rules as expressed in the Helsinki Declaration II.
Exertional dyspnea is a major cause of exercise limitation and anxiety, and contributes importantly to reduced quality of life for patients with COPD. The aim of this study is to determine the efficacy and mechanism of NIV with a dual-limb circuit plus oxygen therapy in relieving exertional dyspnea in patients with severe COPD, so as to provide a guidance for clinical use for NIV.
Pulmonary rehabilitation programs (PRP) are a key factor of comprehensive management of patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Interactive game-based systems have been proposed to improve effects and/or compliance to PRP. The aim of this study is to evaluate the effectiveness of wiifit nintendo as a PRP tool in COPD patients with a randomized controlled trial methods. The patients were divided into experimental (EG) and control (CG) group. The EG performed wiifit program (yoga, strength training, aerobic exercise) twice a week for 6 weeks, the CG performed cycle ergometer twice a week for 6 weeks. The investigators evaluated pre and post treatment: Six-minute walking test, Transitional Dyspnea Index, and Saint George Respiratory Questionnaire.The hypothesis are the EG able to show improvement in exercise tolerance, dyspnea, and quality of life.
