Multidisciplinary Rehabilitation After Cancer Pulmonis Operation

2014-08-27 03:16:40 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The purpose of this investigation is to determine the effects of exercise training on quality of life and physical capacity, 3 months and 1 year after radical operation for pulmonary cancer.

Description

Patients who are radically operated for pulmonary cancer report suffering from respiratory problems, mostly dyspnoea, 5 years after operation. Dyspnoea restricts their physical capability and leads to poorer physical, social and mental wellbeing. The effects of training programs on physical and mental wellbeing for cancer patients are well documented. Most of the studies are though performed on patients suffering from breast, colon and prostate cancer. There are only few studies addressing patients with pulmonary cancer. They are mostly focused on short term effects of exercise training on quality of life, with no control group included in the trials. These studies target patients after different forms for treatment, including surgery, chemotherapy and radiation. There is no data referring to quality of life of patients who are radically operated for pulmonary cancer.

Comparison: multidisciplinary group intervention consisting of exercise training and dyspnoea counseling, 10 times, once a week, compared with one instruction in exercise training and dyspnoea counseling. Exercise training is given by a physiotherapist. Both groups receive in addition standard treatment, which is up to 3 counseling sessions with a nurse.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Controlled physical activity, more strenuous than at rest, which is performed in order to allow assessment of physiological functions, particularly cardiovascular and pulmonary, but also aerobic capacity. Maximal (most intense) exercise is usually required but submaximal exercise is also used. The intensity of exercise is often graded, using criteria such as rate of work done, oxygen consumption, and heart rate.

Instructional programs in the care and development of the body, often in schools. The concept does not include prescribed exercises, which is EXERCISE THERAPY.

A cardiovascular exercise strategy with alternating short periods of intense anaerobic exercise with less-intense recovery periods.

Diet modification and physical exercise to improve the ability to carry out daily tasks and perform physical activities.

Tapering-off physical activity from vigorous to light, to gradually return the body to pre-exercise condition and metabolic state.
