Inpatient paediatric rehabilitation in chronic respiratory disorders


Jung, Andreas; Heinrichs, Irmela; Geidel, Christian; Lauener, Roger (2012). Inpatient paediatric rehabilitation in chronic respiratory disorders. Paediatric Respiratory Reviews, 13(2):123-129.

Abstract

Inpatient pulmonary rehabilitation programs have evolved from tuberculosis sanatoriums to modern medical centres providing standardized comprehensive care in a multidiciplinatory environment. Goals of rehabilitation programs for children and adolescents include restoration of professional activity, improvement of health condition, compliance and disease management as well as restoration of quality of life. Eligibility for an intervention is assessed by defined social and medical criteria. Comprehensive pulmonary rehabilitation programs provide a wide range of health care recourses, including diagnostic procedures, specific medical care, educational interventions and a multiprofessional team. Paediatric rehabilitation programs for chronic respiratory diseases, such as asthma or cystic fibrosis, have been shown to reduce symptoms, increase aerobic fitness and physical strength, improve pulmonary function and inflammation and enhance compliance, self-management, quality of life and psychological symptoms. Regional climatic effects have demonstrated an additional positive effect on the rehabilitation outcome. In addition, first evidence suggests an overall reduction of health care costs.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
