Brief Summary:
This study will investigate the effects of on technique of chest physiotherapy on pulmonary function. Effects of pulmonary function will be measured by the spirometry, body plethysmography and by the multiple breath nitrogen washout technique.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Bronchiectasis Other: Autogenic drainage Not Applicable

Detailed Description:

This is a before-after intervention study.

Spirometry, body plethysmography and then multiple breath nitrogen washout will be measured before the application of chest physiotherapy.

The chest physiotherapy technique used will be autogenic drainage during 30 minutes. A resting period of 5 minutes will be given to the participant before the following tests.

Spirometry, body plethysmography and then multiple breath nitrogen washout will be measured again, in the same order, after the application of chest physiotherapy.

Actual Enrollment : 24 participants
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: Short-term Effects of Chest Physiotherapy on Ventilation Inhomogeneity in Non-CF Bronchiectasis
Study Start Date : April 2015
Actual Primary Completion Date : October 2015
Actual Study Completion Date : February 2016

Arm Intervention/treatment
Autogenic drainage

The autogenic drainage will be the chest physiotherapy technique used for this study.

Autogenic drainage is an airway clearance technique that attempts to obtain the optimal airflow to evacuate the secretions. This technique uses modulation of inspiratory and expiratory airflow at different breathing level within the vital capacity.

Other: Autogenic drainage



Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Change of Lung Clearance Index (LCI) [ Time Frame: up to 80 minutes ]
    LCI will me measured before and after the chest physiotherapy session


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Change of Spirometry [ Time Frame: up to 40 minutes ]
    Forced expired volume in one second (FEV1) and Forced expired flow at 25-75% of the forced vital capacity (FEF25-75) will be measured before and after the chest physiotherapy session

  2. Sputum weight [ Time Frame: 35 minutes ]
    Sputum will be collected during the 30 minutes of chest physiotherapy session and 5 minutes immediately after. Sputum weight will be measured and correlated with change of LCI and spirometry values
