Abstract

Study/Principles: Pulmonary rehabilitation programmes are often costly anddependent on the infrastructure of specialised centres. We developed a modular, outpatient-based rehabilitation programme, which is inexpensive and can be implemented in a variety of settings. The aim of this study was to determine the effects and feasibility of this programme. Methods: Thirteen patients with COPD and 7 patients with asthma were enrolled by their primary care physician because of dyspnoea. Initial assessmentincluded cardiopulmonary exercise testing, six-minute walking distance, lung function testing and multiple questionnaires addressing dyspnoea, depression and quality of life issues. The training consisted of 36 sessions of high intensity training of 2 hours duration to improve exercise tolerance, including 30 minutes of stationary cycling at the anaerobic threshold. Another complete assessment was done on completion of the study at 3 months. Results. The six-minute walking distance improved significantly from 401 to 551 m (p <0.0001). The maximal exercise capacity increased significantly from 85 W to 99 W (p <0.001). The anaerobic threshold remained unchanged despite the high intensity training. There was a reduction of dyspnoea and animprovement of quality of life. Conclusion: This study shows that our outpatient rehabilitation programme leads to a benefit in exercise tolerance and health related quality of lifecomparable to other programmes published in the literature. The rehabilitation programme was very well accepted among patients, primary care physicians and health insurers.
