Samenvatting

Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease is a growing worldwide problem. It has been proved that participating in a rehabilitation programme improves the patient’s quality of life and exercise capacity. Physiotherapists are key figures in planning and implementing patients rehabilitation programmes. It is recommended in the KGNF guidelines that physiotherapists should have the relevant expertise and the diagnostic and therapeutic skills necessary to treat these patients and that they should be familiar with the measuring instruments used in pulmonary assessment and be familiar with the interpretation of incremental exercise test results. Pulmonary function testing includes amongst others, spirometry, plethysmography and cardio pulmonary exercise testing (CPET). The data obtained from spirometry and plethysmography is useful for diagnosing, measuring the severity of and evaluating the effects of treatment of COPD. The data from the CPET is indispensable for identifying exercise limitations such as cardiovascular and ventilatory restrictions. The ability to interpret the data provides the physiotherapist with an invaluable tool to assist with the planning, implementation and evaluation of the individual’s treatment plan.
