About

Pulmonary rehabilitation program with aerobic and strengthening for 3 months will be applied to the candidates for lung transplantation. The program will be designed to be 2 days supervised weekly and 3 day home program. Cognitive functions and exercise capacities of the patients before and after the program will be evaluated.

Full description

The fact that cognition is not always included in the assessment routine makes it difficult to clarify which patient group or severity of illness is more affected by this issue. The effect of exercise on cognitive functions is a remarkable issue in recent years. It can also be predicted that cognitive function may be effective on program adaptation in patients who are given home program without supervision. The aim of the investigator's study was to investigate the effect of pulmonary rehabilitation on cognitive status in candidate lung transplant recipients. Lung transplantation candidates who refered from Lung Transplantation surgery team will receive the Pulmonary Rehabilitation program for 3-months (2 days at hospital, 3 days at home). Exercise program includes aerobic (walking band, bicycle, arm ergometer) and strengthening (with free weights) components. Patient will evaluate at the beginning and end of the program. Demographic information, diagnosis distributions, educational status of patients will be recorded. Exercise capacities are determined by 6 min walk test. The medical research concil dyspnea scale is used in determining the dispense levels. Montreal Cognitive Function Assessment (MOCA) is used to determine cognitive functions. Cognitive functions and exercise capacities of the patients before and after the program will be evaluated.
