Réhabilitation respiratoire chez les patients atteints de BPCO.

Abstract : This work was completed within the Service of Respiratory Functional Exploration (Hospital of Croix-Rousse- Lyon- France) evaluates patients suffering from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) by using pulmonary rehabilitation.
We initially evaluated the effects of an entirely outpatient-based program of pulmonary rehabilitation carried out on 80 patients (FEV1 = 46%) in which 40 exercise sessions were held two to three times per week for about 14 weeks. The benefit is significant on the 6-minutes walking test (6-MWT), the questionnaire of quality of life (SGRQ) and BODE index.
During this program, we also evaluated on 30 patients the effects of a specific training program of ventilatory muscles with significant increase of the maximum inspiratory pressure at the end of this program.
The continuation of the rehabilitation at home is also very important. One of our studies evaluated the effects of a programme of pulmonary rehabilitation at home over a period from 1 to 5 years with continuation of the improvement which they won during the first program of outpatient pulmonary rehabilitation.
Finally, A group of patients with severe COPD (12 patients: FEV1= 34%) assisted during their outpatient pulmonary rehabilitation by non invasive ventilatory support (NIVS) which was delivered using AI vision in PAV mode of the ventilator VS Ultra in order to enabling them to achieve the totality of their program of rehabilitation.
