Role of pulmonary rehabilibtation in cases of healed pulmonary Tuberculosis
Introduction: Pulmonary rehabilitation is a comprehensive intervention for patients with chronic respiratory diseases who are symptomatic and often decreased life activities Pulmonary rehabilitation reduces hospitalization among patients who have a repeated exacerbation. This study is used to assess the role of pulmonary rehabilitation in healed pulmonary tuberculosis patients.
Materials and Method: This is a hospital-based randomized case-control study, conducted in 132 clinically healed tuberculosis patients in Sarojini Naidu medical college, Agra to assess the role of pulmonary rehabilitation in healed tuberculosis patient The role of pulmonary rehabilitation in healed pulmonary tuberculosis patients is assessed by 6minute walk test and Modified Borg Scale [RPE scale]
Result: The change in decline in [PRE 6MWT] observed between the case and control group was significant [p<0.5]. The change in decline in [POST 6MWT] observed between the case and control group was significant [p<0.5]. Conclusion: In conclusion, pulmonary rehabilitation is a new hope for patients with healed pulmonary tuberculosis. It is a treatment that reduces dyspnea and increases activities of daily living, exercise tolerance, exercise capacity, and better quality of life.
