ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier:
NCT01303913

Villa Pineta Hospital
  Purpose
Oxygen desaturation (SO2 < 88-90%) during walking is a common clinical feature of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) patients. By a predicted analysis our study is aimed to evaluate anthropometric and functional characteristics of COPD patients correlated with oxygen desaturation during Six-minute walking test (6MWT).

Condition
COPD

Study Type: Observational
Study Design: Observational Model: Cohort
Time Perspective: Prospective
Official Title: Composite Analysis on Factors That Predict Oxygen Desaturation During Walking in COPD

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Oxygen saturation nadir (SO2 nadir) [ Time Frame: Measured at the end of 6MWT ]
    Measured by change in percentage (%)


Enrollment: 400
Study Start Date: June 2010
Study Completion Date: February 2011
Groups/Cohorts
Walking desaturation group
COPD patients that at the end of 6MWT have SO2 nadir <88-90%
Walking No-desaturation group
COPD patients that at the end of 6MWT have SO2 nadir >88-90%
