Abstract: BACKGROUND: Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a multifaceted illness involving more than just airflow blockage. It is a global health concern, with cigarette smoking being a major risk factor across the board. Active cycle of breathing technique (ACBT) is an airway clearance approach that includes breath control, thoracic expansion exercises, with forceful expiration. . Chest physiotherapy has been suggested to be useful for patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) due to therapeutic effects. METHODS: 20 subjects were selected based on Inclusion and Exclusion criteria. 10 subjects for Experimental group (Group A), they were given ACBT. The Control group (Group B) consisting of 10 subjects, were given Postural drainage with Chest physiotherapy.The CAT scale, Pulse Oximeter and Sputum weight (ml) were used as outcome measures. RESULT: Statistical analysis of post test for CAT scale, pulse oximeter, Sputum weight (ml) revealed that there was a significant difference seen in Active cycle of breathing technique when compared to postural drainage with Chest physiotherapy. DISCUSSION: The goal of the study is to determine the most efficient method of treating COPD in terms of clearing the airways utilising the ACBT, postural drainage with chest physiotherapy. Beneficial effects were significantly greater in Active cycle of breathing technique when compared to postural drainage with chest physiotherapy. CONCLUSION: According to the findings of this study, ACBT in the experimental group is much more effective when compared to control group postural drainage with chest physiotherapy in sputum output and airway clearance for COPD patients.
Keywords: ACBT, CAT Scale, COPD, Postural Drainage with Chest Physiotherapy, Pulse oximeter, Sputum weight(ml).
