MENDEZ, Andrea; LABRA, Patricio; PIZARRO, Rafael  e  BAEZA, Nelly. Low rates of participation and completion of pulmonary rehabilitation in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease in primary health care. Rev. méd. Chile [online]. 2018, vol.146, n.11, pp.1304-1308. ISSN 0034-9887.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0034-98872018001101304.

Background:

Only 6% of patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) participate in pulmonary rehabilitation programs (PR) and only 50% of those who participate, complete these programs.

Aim:

To determine rates of PR program participation and completion among patients with COPD in Chile.

Material and Methods:

Analysis of a database available at the Ministry of Health, which included data of 277491 patients with COPD (55% females) and their participation in PR programs, between 2014 and 2016.

Results:

Forty percent of patients were over 75 years of age. Participation rates in PR programs ranged from 2.4 to 2.9%. Rates of completion ranged from 26 to 36%.

Conclusions:

There is a low rate of participation in PR programs among patients with COPD. Approximately one third of participants complete these programs.
