Effect of specific bronchial hygienic measures to promote breathing pattern in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease

S Lakshmiprabha

A quasi experimental study with pre-test and post-test control group design with evaluative approach was conducted to assess the effectiveness of specific bronchial hygienic measures to promote breathing pattern in patients with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease. Assessment of patients using level of dyspnea scale revealed that the overall control group mean score (6.23+0.55) which is 62% whereas in the experimental group the mean score (5.60+0.27) which is 56% of the total score with an overall difference of 6%. Similarly, in breathing pattern scale, the overall control group mean score (23.33 + 9.46) which is 32% whereas in the experimental group the mean score (13.93 + 5.85) which is 19% of the total score with an overall difference of 13%, revealing the effectiveness of bronchial hygienic measures. Highly significant difference was found between the pretest and posttest of experimental group in both the scales (P<0.001) but no significant association was found between the experimental group post-test when compared with the demographic variables of patients with COPD (P<0.05).
