Music therapy increases effectiveness of pulmonary rehabilitation for COPD patients
(The Mount Sinai Hospital / Mount Sinai School of Medicine) Patients with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) and other chronic respiratory disorders who received music therapy in conjunction with standard rehabilitation saw an improvement in symptoms, psychological well-being and quality of life compared to patients receiving rehabilitation alone, according to a new study by researchers at The Louis Armstrong Center of Music and Medicine at Mount Sinai Beth Israel (MSBI).
Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a progressive condition with no cure. It is not possible to completely reverse it, but there are many things a person with COPD can do to help enhance outlook and improve their quality of life.
Background and objective Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) will reduce the cardiopulmonary function and increase perioperative risk. The aim of this study is to investigate the effect of preoperative short-term high intensity lung rehabilitation training on lung function and postoperative complications in patients with COPD who are eligible for lung cancer surgery. Methods We analysis of 101 patients with COPD and a diagnosis of lung cancer, with 43 patients in pulmonary rehabilitation group and 58 patients in conventional group. The pulmonary function, postoperative pulmonary complications (PPCs) and length of ...

Pulmonx said yesterday that it won national coverage through health insurer Aetna for its Zephyr endobronchial valve system intended for treating severe emphysema and chronic obstructive pulmonary disorder. The coverage will make the Zephyr valve available to Aetna’s 22 million members, the Redwood City, Calif.-based company said. Under its new policy, Aetna specifically named the Zephyr as an approved bronchoscopic option for lung volume reduction, considering it medically necessary for the broncoscopic treatment of adult patients with hyperinflation associated with severe emphysema in regions of the lung with littl...

Patients with psychiatric disorders (depression, anxiety) are more likely to have poor health behaviours, including higher smoking and lower physical activity (PA) levels. Smoking is a major risk factor for Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), and PA is critical for COPD management. However, no studies have assessed associations between psychological distress and these behaviours among patients with vs without COPD. This is a sub-analysis of the CanCOLD study that assessed the relationships between psychological disorders (depression, anxiety) and poor health behaviours (smoking, PA).
