Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Therapeutic Success as Change From Baseline in Physical Functioning After 6 Weeks [ Time Frame: Baseline and after 6 weeks of treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Main efficacy measure was therapeutic success rate defined as an improvement from baseline after 6 weeks by at least 10 score points in the PF-10 (subdomain of SF-36) score (range from 0 to 100, 0 reflects worst and 100 best condition)

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Change From Baseline in the PF-10 Score After 6 Weeks [ Time Frame: Baseline and after 6 weeks of treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Numerical changes in physical functioning (PF-10) after 6 weeks of treatment. PF-10 (subdomain of SF-36) score (range from 0 to 100, 0 reflects worst and 100 best condition)

  • Change From Baseline After 6 Weeks in Physician's Global Evaluation (PGE) Form Safety [ Time Frame: Baseline and after 6 weeks of treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Changes in Physician's Global Evaluation in physical functioning from baseline after 6 weeks of treatment (measured as 8 point scale with classifications "poor" (1, 2), "satisfactory" (3, 4), "good" (5, 6), and "excellent" (7, 8))

  • Patients' Satisfaction After 6 Weeks of Treatment [ Time Frame: 6 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Patients' satisfaction with the Spiriva® Respimat® device after 6 weeks of treatment ("very satisfied", "satisfied", "rather satisfied", "neither satisfied nor "unsatisfied", "rather unsatisfied", "unsatisfied", and "very unsatisfied")
