Brief Summary in Lay Language

With this study we would like to investigate if there is a positive effect of a pneumological rehabilitation after a acute exacerbation of a chronic pulmonal disease (COPD). An acute exacerbation means a worsening of an existing COPD going along with increasing distress, cough or sputum. These symptoms may occur alone or in combination. After a sufficient convalescence the test person are invited for taking part in the study. The classification of the proband in studygroup or controlgroup depends on whether a three weeks pneumological rehabilitation has been performed. Every test person will be invited again for further examination (Questionnaire, Lung-function test, 6-minutes walk control, Number of hospital stays in the time of one year after the exacerbation). After this there will be a comparison of the two study groups.

Brief Summary in Scientific Language

Object of investigation are the long term effects of a pneumological rehabilitation program after an acute exacerbation of an existing COPD. Primary parameters are mortality, number of hospital stays (number of days) in the year after the exacerbation. Clinical parameters are lung function testing (FEV1), 6-minutes walk control, and questionnaire (CAT, SGRQ). 40 test persons are planned to be investigated in each group (study and control). In comparison may be shown an effect on the course of the disease. Also important is the economic aspect of the cost of an pneumological rehabilitation and if it reduces following costs in the health care system for instance by reducing the number of reexacerbations.
