Efficiency of Home-Based Pulmonary Rehabilitation in Adults With Asthma

2019-09-17 02:47:18 | BioPortfolio


Asthma is a serious global health problem affecting people of all ages in every country in the world. Despite the presence of effective medications, many studies have reported poor asthma control in patients. Therefore, new approaches are needed to improve asthma control. Pulmonary rehabilitation is recommended as an alternative approach in patients with chronic lung disease including asthma. Also, home-based type of pulmonary rehabilitation can be preferred because it is more cost-effective and patients can spend more time with their families. There are a limited number of studies in the literature evaluating the efficacy of home-based pulmonary rehabilitation in asthmatic patients. The aim of this study was to investigate the efficacy of home-based pulmonary rehabilitation program with simple equipment in asthmatic patients.
