Association Between Patient-Tailored Case Management Initiative and Outcomes in Subacute Rehabilitation Facilities to Decrease 30-day Hospital Readmissions for Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) will become the 3rd leading cause of death worldwide in 2020 and is currently the 3rd leading cause of hospital readmissions in the US. In October 2014, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) introduced penalties followed by bundle payments for care improvement initiates in patients hospitalized with an acute exacerbation of COPD (AECOPD). Fragmented care across settings cause readmissions for COPD. A patient-tailored case management initiative mitigated 30-day hospital readmissions at Sub-Acute Rehabilitation (SAR) centers.

(Natural News) Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) refers to a cluster of potentially fatal respiratory conditions. It is marked by breathlessness, inflammation, airway obstruction and significant bronchial damage. Many of the chronic respiratory diseases classified under COPD, such as emphysema and chronic bronchitis, are primarily caused by exposure to cigarette smoke. However, COPD can also...

CONCLUSIONS: At our institution, patients who were older or had significant co-morbid conditions (CAD, CHF, COPD, motility disorders, or cirrhosis) were more likely to have inadequate inpatient bowel preparation. Bowel preparation type did not affect the duration, quality of visualization, or successful cecal intubation. PMID: 32218419 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Abstract Object. Results on the associations of fruit and vegetable intake with risk of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) are still in conflict. Hence, we conducted a meta-analysis to quantitatively evaluate the association between fruit and vegetable intake and the risk of COPD. Methods: PubMed, Web of Science, and China National Knowledge Infrastructure (CNKI) were searched for relevant studies published up to September 2019. Combined relative risks (RRs) and 95% confidence intervals (CIs) were calculated with the random effects model (REM). Dose-response relationship was assessed by the restrict...

In Reply We thank Luo and colleagues for their interest in our recent publication and for their thoughtful comments. Our results show that long-term ozone concentrations were associated with multiple respiratory outcomes among smokers with and at risk for chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). In particular, we found that higher ozone concentrations were associated with lower lung function in individuals with a history of heavy smoking both with and without COPD ( −2.50% lower forced expiratory volume in the first second of expiration [FEV1] predicted value; 95% CI, −4.42% to −0.59%; P =&thi...

ConclusionsHigh intensity interval training increases cardiorespiratory fitness and exercise capacity when compared with no exercise and produces a similar magnitude of change as continuous exercise in people with COPD. There is a paucity of studies exploring the effects of HIIT in other chronic pulmonary conditions.
