A Study of Pulmonary Rehabilitation in Patients with Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis (IPF)
The main objectives of this study are to determine the difference in change from baseline in Six Minute Walk Distance (6MWD) when pulmonary rehabilitation (PR) is added to stable underlying nintedanib therapy in patients with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF), to determine the difference in change in Quality of Life (QoL) when pulmonary rehabilitation (PR) is added to stable underlying nintedanib therapy in patients with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF), and to determine if there is an enduring effect in 6MWD, QoL and lung function from pulmonary rehabilitation (PR) when pulmonary rehabilitation (PR) is added to stable underlying nintedanib therapy in patients with idiopathic pulmonary ...
Home Pulmonary Rehabilitation for COPD
Jacksonville, FL; Rochester, MN
While pulmonary rehabilitation provides benefits to people with COPD, only 1.5% have access to pulmonary rehabilitation each year. The main barriers are related to travel and transportation. This protocol will evaluate the effect of a home-based rehabilitation system on quality of life and steps. The system allows for monitoring by a health care system. A health coach will review the data and provide coaching to facilitate behavioral change and self-efficacy. Patients will be randomized to 1 of 2 groups.

Exercise to Treat Frailty in Kidney Transplant Candidates
Frailty is a condition characterized by slowness, weakness, low physical activity, wasting, and exhaustion. Frailty increases the risk for adverse outcomes following transplant such as increased length of stay in the hospital, mortality, or graft function. No interventions for frailty are known for patients with renal disease, but exercise programs like pulmonary rehabilitation have been effective in improving frailty in patients with other diseases, such as lung disease. The goal of this study is to test whether exercise will also improve frailty among patients who are waiting for a kidney transplant and who are considered frail or pre-frail.
