Abstract

Chronic respiratory diseases are common and increasing in relative terms as causes of disability and death. The aim of the study to assess the effectiveness of incentive spirometry exercise on improving pulmonary parameters among patients with lower respiratory tract disorders at SMVMCH& RC, Puducherry. The research approach selected for the study is quantitative evaluative approach with true experimental pre-test post-test control group design was used. Through simple Random Sampling Technique, 60 patients were selected, among them 30 were assigned as experimental group and 30 were assigned as control group. Demographic and clinical variables were collected by using a structured questionnaire and their pre-test, post-test pulmonary parameters were assessed by Modified American Medical Research Council Respiratory Assessment Scale. In experimental group investigator given spirometry exercise and in the control group they followed routine care. Post test conducted for both groups by Modified American Medical Research Council Respiratory Assessment Scale. The collected data were analysed based on the objectives using descriptive and inferential statistics. In experimental group 24(80%) and 6(20%) were in normal and poor pulmonary parameters respectively. In control group 4(13.3%) and 26(86.7%) were in normal and poor pulmonary parameters respectively. The calculated ‘t’ value was 10.468 which was greater than the p<0.001. Hence the research hypothesis H1 was accepted.
