Comparison of sitting calisthenics vs respiratory muscle stretch gymnastics to desensitize dyspnea in moderate COPD patients

Author: D. ANANDHI
Abstract: BACKGROUND: COPD is a growing health problem in the society. According to the World Health Organization, it’s expected burden will increase in the coming decades, mostly due to continued exposure to risk factors, population growth and aging, to become the third leading cause of death by 2030. OBJECTIVE: To compare the effects of sitting calisthenics VS respiratory muscle stretch gymnastics to desensitize dyspnea in moderate COPD patients. METHODOLOGY: It is a experimental design of pre –post type. 30 subjects (GROUP A-15 &GROUP B-15) with the duration of 12 weeks and the age group of 40 to 60 years were included. Subjects with the history ofMusculoskeletal, Rheumatic, Cardiac or Neurological disorders, previous Lung surgery, Malignant disease, patients with cognitive deficit, patients with lower limb surgery within proceeding 3 months, acute exacerbations of COPD, long-term oxygen treatment, participants with previous enrolment in pulmonary rehabilitation program were excluded. The participants were explained about the procedure of the study. COPD patients with GOLD II criteria and graded with dyspnea scale, 6-Minute Walk test is performed. RESULTS: In moderate COPD patients, CSC is statistically significant and dyspnea got desensitized, whereas RMSG is not statisticallysignificant. CONCLUSION: This study concluded that subjects followed CSC exercises showed improvement in 6 Minute walk tests which means there was a reduction of dyspnea compared to subjects followed RMSG.
