Effects of rehabilitation on physical efficiency in patients with lung cancer evaluated by means of the 6-minute walking test

Languages of publication
The aim of the research was to evaluate the effects of three rehabilitation programmes of various intensity on physical efficiency in patients with lung cancer undergoing radiotherapy. The examined group consisted of 70 men aged 63 who before and after the rehabilitation programme performed the 6-minute walking test. They were qualified to a proper rehabilitation group on the basis of the walking test carried out before the therapy. The moderate rehabilitation programme including systemic rehabilitation exercises resulted in positive changes in physical efficiency in comparison with rehabilitation programme combined with endurance training.
Celem badań była ocena wpływu 3 programów rehabilitacyjnych o zróżnicowanej intensywności na wydolność fizyczną pacjentów z rakiem płuc znajdujących się w trakcie radioterapii. Obserwacjami objęto 70 mężczyzn w wieku 63 lat. Przed rozpoczęciem fizjoterapii oraz bezpośrednio po jej ukończeniu chorzy poddani zostali próbie 6-minutowego testu marszowego. Przydział do odpowiedniej grupy rehabilitacyjnej następował na podstawie wyniku testu marszowego wykonanego przed rozpoczęciem terapii. Umiarkowany program rehabilitacyjny, obejmujący ogólnoustrojowe ćwiczenia usprawniające, spowodował korzystniejsze zmiany w kształtowaniu wydolności w porównaniu z leczeniem rehabilitacyjnym poszerzonym o trening wytrzymałościowy.
