Title: Effect of traditional Chinese and western medicine combined with lung rehabilitation training on pulmonary function in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease complicated with chronic cor pulmonale and evaluation of efficacy
Author: Jing ZHANG, Bei JIANG

Abstract: OBJECTIVES: To investigate the effect and efficacy of traditional Chinese and western medicine combined with lung rehabilitation training on pulmonary function in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease(COPD) complicated with chronic cor pulmonale.
METHODS: Totally 200 COPD patients with chronic cor pulmonale in our hospital were selected as research objects. The 100 patients in control group were managed by conventional western medicine combined with lung rehabilitation training, and another 100 patients in observation group were treated with traditional Chinese and western medicine combined with lung rehabilitation training. The pulmonary function (modified British Medical Research Council (mMRC) Dyspnea Scale, COPD Assessment Tests (CAT), BODE index (body-mass, airflow obstruction, dyspnea, and exercise capacity), pulmonary function-related indexes (FEV1, FVC, FEV1/FVC, and FEV1/Pred), and blood gas analysis indicators (paO2, PaCO2, SaO2 and PH value)) and curative effect (the effectiveness, Satisfaction Test, Quality of Life Score, and TCM Syndrome Integral) before and after treatment within or between groups were compared.
RESULTS: Before treatment, the pulmonary function and curative effect (Quality of Life Score and TCM Syndrome Integral) parameters showed no significant difference between the two groups, which indicated there was a comparability between the two groups. After treatment, all parameters of pulmonary function and curative effect displayed better results in observation group than in control group. Compared with the results before treatment, pulmonary function and curative effect revealed better in both groups after treatment, and more visible improvement trends were found in observation group.
CONCLUSIONS: Traditional Chinese and western medicine combined with lung rehabilitation training displayed better results on lung function and curative effect than conventional western medicine combined with lung rehabilitation training in patients with COPD complicated with chronic cor pulmonale (Tab. 8, Ref. 43).
