NCT ID: NCT01747694


Title
The Effectiveness of Multi-respiratory Muscle Training on Respiratory Function in Patients With COPD
Purpose
COPD patients often suffer from dyspnea and exercise intolerance which lower their quality of life.The aim of this proposed study is to examine the effectiveness of multi-respiratory muscle training on respiratory function of COPD patients.
Details
The respiratory muscle training is an important part of pulmonary rehabilitation. Subjects will be recruited from the chest medicine clinic of a medical center in Northern Taiwan, randomly assigned to control and experimental groups by severity status for a 12-week muscle training intervention.The outcome measures will be performed to evaluate respiratory function, depression status and quality of life at baseline, 4, 8 and 12 weeks of training.
