Abstract

A STUDY TO ASSESS THE EFFECTIVENESS OF PULMONARY REHABILITATION PACKAGE ON KNOWLEDGE AND QUALITY OF LIFE REGARDING SELECTED RESPIRATORY COMPLICATIONS AND BIO PHYSIOLOGICAL PARAMETERS AMONG PATIENTS WITH CHRONIC OBSTRUCTIVE PULMONARY DISEASE (COPD) AT SELECTED HOSPITALS, KOLLAM

ABSTRACT

The chronic obstructive pulmonary diseases have many respiratory complications. The aim of the study was to assess the effectiveness of pulmonary rehabilitation package on knowledge and quality of life regarding respiratory complications and bio physiological parameters among patients with COPD in selected hospitals, Kollam. The main objectives of the study were, to assess the knowledge regarding respiratory complications, quality of life and bio physiological parameters among patients with COPD at selected hospitals, Kollam, to determine the effectiveness of pulmonary rehabilitation package on knowledge regarding respiratory complications, quality of life and bio physiological parameters among patients with COPD at selected hospitals, Kollam, to find out the association between pretest knowledge regarding respiratory complications among patients with COPD and selected demographic variables, to find out the association between pretest quality of life among patients with COPD and selected demographic variables, to find out the association between pretest bio physiological parameters among patients with COPD and selected demographic variables. A quasi experimental non randomized control group research design was used. The present study was conducted in Bishop Benziger hospital, Kollam. The sample consisted of 60 patients with COPD in selected hospitals, Kollam. Purposive sampling technique was used. The findings of the study revealed that there was significant difference between mean pre-test and post test score among patients with COPD in experimental group and there was significant difference between mean post test score among patients with COPD in experimental group and control group. The study concluded that pulmonary rehabilitation package was very effective in patients with COPD.

Keywords: Effectiveness, Pulmonary rehabilitation package, Quality of life, respiratory complications, bio physiological parameters.
