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).

The five Muscarinic Acetylcholine (ACh) receptors are G-protein coupled receptors (M1R-M5R). M1R, M3R and M5R selectively couple to Gq/G11; M2R and M4R selectively couple to Gi/Go. M3 muscarinic ACh receptors are present in the central nervous system and the periphery.M3R knockout mice are viable and fertile, and have no major morphological abnormalities. They have a lean phenotype. This results from a combination of reduced caloric intake and increased energy expenditure. They eat less food than wild-type mice, possibly because a central cholinergic pathway that stimulates food intake is disrupted. They also expend more e...

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a leading cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide and results in both substantial and increasing socioeconomic burden. Guidelines on COPD encourage primary care physicians to detect the disease at an early stage. Our main aim was to evaluate the accuracy of the diagnosis of COPD at the primary health care.
