Nurse Managed Sequential Strength Training and Bicycle Training in Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)

2014-07-23 21:10:57 | BioPortfolio

Summary

This is a 16 week exercise training program for people with severe to very severe chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). The purpose of this study is to find out if performing strength training prior to initiating exercise training on a stationary bicycle is associated with greater gains in functional status than bicycle training alone or concurrent bicycle and strength training together.

Description

Volunteers are randomly assigned to one of three groups: 1). 8 weeks of resistance (strength) training followed by 8 weeks of bicycle exercise training, 2). 8 weeks of chair exercise followed by 8 weeks of resistance (strength) training and bicycle exercise training, or 3). 8 weeks of chair exercise followed by 8 weeks of bicycle exercise training. The length of the training is 16 weeks for all 3 groups. Volunteers train 3 days per week in our lab located in the Chicagoland area and are supervised by an exercise specialist.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A disease of chronic diffuse irreversible airflow obstruction. Subcategories of COPD include CHRONIC BRONCHITIS and PULMONARY EMPHYSEMA.

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.

A subcategory of CHRONIC OBSTRUCTIVE PULMONARY DISEASE. The disease is characterized by hypersecretion of mucus accompanied by a chronic (more than 3 months in 2 consecutive years) productive cough. Infectious agents are a major cause of chronic bronchitis.

Financial support for training including both student stipends and loans and training grants to institutions.

A type of strength-building exercise program that requires the body muscle to exert a force against some form of resistance, such as weight, stretch bands, water, or immovable objects. Resistance exercise is a combination of static and dynamic contractions involving shortening and lengthening of skeletal muscles.
