Management of respiratory diseases beyond drugs: Pulmonary Rehab

This article highlights some of the areas raised by a discussion panel in Mumbai on Pulmonary Rehabilitation (PR) of patients with respiratory diseases.

Topics covered were:

  • REHABILITATION IN COPD (CHRONIC OBSTRUCTIVE PULMONARY DISEASE)

The panel touched on how “Respiratory-muscle training can be considered in patients with respiratory-muscle weakness.”

POWERbreathe Respiratory Muscle Training (RMT) is drug-free, clinically proven and beneficial for patients with COPD as a stand alone therapy and for pulmonary rehab. Read more about POWERbreathe RMT for Pulmonary Rehab in COPD patients.

  • PULMONARY REHABILITATION IN TB
  • REHABILITATION IN IDIOPATHIC PULMONARY FIBROSIS (IPF)
  • REHABILITATION IN POST LUNG RE-SECTIONAL SURGERY

Inspiratory Muscle Training During Pulmonary Rehabilitation in COPD

On March 04, 2014 ClinicalTrials.gov processed data on a new Clinical Trial: “Effects of Inspiratory Muscle Training (IMT) on Dyspnea in COPD During Pulmonary Rehabilitation: Randomized Controlled Trial

Brief Summary of the Clinical Trial

“Demonstrate that IMT associated with a conventional pulmonary rehabilitation program allows a significant improvement of dyspnea in subjects with severe or very severe COPD than a conventional pulmonary rehabilitation program alone.”

Study Primary Completion Date: August 2015

Interventions Used in this Clinical Trial

  • Inspiratory Muscle Training (IMT) using POWERbreathe
