Does Pulmonary Daoyin of China Give Additional Benefit Over Usual Therapy in Management of Stable Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease?
The purpose of this study is to compare the exercise capacity and pulmonary function test parameters of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) patients who underwent usual care with and without pulmonary daoyin therapy of China in community.
This is a multicenter, randomized, none-blind, controlled study to evaluate the effect of pulmonary daoyin therapy in moderate to very severe COPD subjects. Following a 14 day run-in period, approximately 464 subjects will be randomly assigned to none-blind treatment for 3 months. The primary measure of efficacy is the Exercise Capacity (6MWD) and spirometric values (e.g. FEV1). Secondary efficacy measures include Dyspnea (MMRC), Quality of life (CAT,SF-36), frequency of exacerbations. Safety will be assessed through the collection of adverse events. There will be a total of 4 study visits (randomization, and after 1,2,3 months of treatment).

The hypothesis of this study was that acupuncture in conjunction with standard care of pulmonary rehabilitation improves outcome measures compared to pulmonary rehabilitation alone.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
Hypertrophy and dilation of the RIGHT VENTRICLE of the heart that is caused by PULMONARY HYPERTENSION. This condition is often associated with pulmonary parenchymal or vascular diseases, such as CHRONIC OBSTRUCTIVE PULMONARY DISEASE and PULMONARY EMBOLISM.
Excessive accumulation of extravascular fluid in the lung, an indication of a serious underlying disease or disorder. Pulmonary edema prevents efficient PULMONARY GAS EXCHANGE in the PULMONARY ALVEOLI, and can be life-threatening.
A PULMONARY ALVEOLI-filling disease, characterized by dense phospholipoproteinaceous deposits in the alveoli, cough, and DYSPNEA. This disease is often related to, congenital or acquired, impaired processing of PULMONARY SURFACTANTS by alveolar macrophages, a process dependent on GRANULOCYTE-MACROPHAGE COLONY-STIMULATING FACTOR.
A respiratory distress syndrome in newborn infants, usually premature infants with insufficient PULMONARY SURFACTANTS. The disease is characterized by the formation of a HYALINE-like membrane lining the terminal respiratory airspaces (PULMONARY ALVEOLI) and subsequent collapse of the lung (PULMONARY ATELECTASIS).
Narrowing below the PULMONARY VALVE or well below it in the infundibuluar chamber where the pulmonary artery originates, usually caused by a defective VENTRICULAR SEPTUM or presence of fibrous tissues. It is characterized by restricted blood outflow from the RIGHT VENTRICLE into the PULMONARY ARTERY, exertional fatigue, DYSPNEA, and chest discomfort.
