The Authors have studied the realisation of a project in order to include a respiratory physiokinesis therapy training in the therapeutic protocol of chronic obstructive lung disease. The training was carried out in 20 sittings and the following methods were utilized: -Isometric muscolar relaxation -percussion drainage of secretions, -abdominal respiration under the guidance of a physiokinesis therapist, -diaphragmatic respiration with a bio-feed-back instrument, -control of a respiratory frequency and of inspiration-expiration-pause rhythm with a biofeed-back instrument. The constant presence of the patients has proved the therapeutic proposal pertinence, while respiratory function tests analysis, has shown significant increases of tidal volume and of volume/m', reduction of RF/m' and improvement of the indices of individual performance.

Abstract

The Authors have studied the realisation of a project in order to include a respiratory physiokinesis therapy training in the therapeutic protocol of chronic obstructive lung disease. The training was carried out in 20 sittings and the following methods were utilized: -Isometric muscolar relaxation -percussion drainage of secretions, -abdominal respiration under the guidance of a physiokinesis therapist, -diaphragmatic respiration with a bio-feed-back instrument, -control of a respiratory frequency and of inspiration-expiration-pause rhythm with a biofeed-back instrument. The constant presence of the patients has proved the therapeutic proposal pertinence, while respiratory function tests analysis, has shown significant increases of tidal volume and of volume/m', reduction of RF/m' and improvement of the indices of individual performance.
