|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|Pulmonary Disease, Chronic Obstructive||Device: SIMEOX Device: PEP||Not Applicable|
This is a crossover study assessing the short-term effects of SIMEOX and PEP device on static hyperinflation in patients with COPD.
Patients will perform lung function tests (to assess the residual volume and functional residual capacity) before, after and 30 minutes after a 20-min long session of SIMEOX or PEP (depending of randomization).
|Study Type :||Interventional (Clinical Trial)|
|Estimated Enrollment :||25 participants|
|Intervention Model:||Crossover Assignment|
|Intervention Model Description:||
The visits include sessions (test 1 and 2) with SIMEOX or a positive expiratory pressure device (PEP) (chosen according to the subject's randomization) lasting 20 minutes, each followed by a rest period of 30 minutes.
Lung function tests will be performed before, after and 30 minutes after performing the devices (SIMEOX and PEP).
|Masking:||None (Open Label)|

Active Comparator: SIMEOX
Participants will have to perform 20 minutes of SIMEOX. Passive exhalation is required using the SIMEOX, starting from tidal volume and going until achieving residual volume.
SIMEOX is a device generating a succession of gentle depression at the mouth.
Active Comparator: PEP
Participants will have to perform 20 minutes of PEP. Active exhalation is required using a PEP device, starting from tidal volume and going until achieving residual volume.
A PEP device (Pari-PEP) will be used to provoke a positive expiratory pressure while exhaling, thereby stabilizing the airways during expiration.
- Change in functional residual capacity (FRC) using body plethysmography [ Time Frame: 15 minutes ]FRCpleth before, after and 30 minutes after performing SIMEOX and PEP will be compared.
- Change in functional residual capacity (FRC) using helium dilution [ Time Frame: 5 minutes ]FRChe before, after and 30 minutes after performing SIMEOX and PEP will be compared.
- Change in air trapping [ Time Frame: 20 minutes ]FRCpleth - FRChe before, after and 30 minutes after performing SIMEOX and PEP will be compared.
