Dear Annals of Medical Research Readers

As of the end of March 2021, I have started to work as Chief Editor at Annals of Medical Research. Our journal is the official publication of Inonu University Medical Faculty and published uninterruptedly for 28 years.  Our Journal, which is online as an open access journal with monthly free access, is being scanned in many national and international indexes (ULAKBIM TR Dizin, Turkish Medline, EBSCO, Google Scholar, etc.). I would like to thank the Editors before me who contributed to this level. Our primary goal is to ensure the maintenance of this good state of the journal and to ensure that it is scanned in prestigious international indexes (Pubmed Central, SCI-Expended, etc.). In order to achieve these goals, it depends on the original research articles that can be cited and the articles published in our Journal to be cited sufficiently in other international journals. The contributions of our readers, reviewers and authors in achieving this goal are of great importance.

I hope to announce the news that we have reached our goals as soon as possible.

MD. Prof. Nevzat Erdil

Aim: To evaluate impact of pulmonary rehabilitation (PR) on quality of life (QoL) and respiratory variables in Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD).
Materials and methods: PR program for 3 times per week for 8 weeks were performed in patients with COPD. Breathing, upper extremity strengthening and cycle ergometry exercises were performed. PFTs, MMRC dyspnoea scale, BODE Index and 6-minute walking test (6-MWT) were evaluated baseline and after treatment in all patients with COPD. Beck Depression Inventory and State-Trait Anxiety Inventory (STAI I and II) were used for evaluating depression and anxiety and QoL was evaluated with SF-36 scale.
Patients having any other cardiac or pulmonary co-morbiditites, inability for attending rehabilitation program (due to physical, physicologic or neurologic problems) were excluded.
Results: A total of 50 patients were included (45 male and 5 female patients). Mean age was 59.4±8.8 (56-62). Improvement was detected in exercise capacity, dyspnea severity, QoL, anxiety, and depression levels. Improvement in PFT results were obtained after exercise program.
Conclusion: PR program with cycle ergometry is effective in patients with COPD.

Keywords: Rehabilitation; exercise; chronic lung disease; anxiety
