Abstract

 

 Objective: To synthesize the existing evidence on the main results of face-to-face and/or telerehabilitation rehabilitation programs on functionality in elderly people with COPD.

Materials and method: We searched for scientific articles in the following databases: Medline via PubMed and BVS Lilacs that met the eligibility criteria, between January 1, 2019 and January 1, 2021, selecting 4 documents. The keywords "Aged", "Pulmonary Disease, Chronic Obstructive", "Rehabilitation - Telerehabilitation" were used to identify articles.

Results: The average age of the participants was 65.4, male studies predominated and of the elderly included with COPD, 50% suffered from severe COPD. Regarding the description of the rehabilitation programs, 75% had follow-up of the results, from 3 to 12 months, 50% of the programs had a duration of 10 weeks, in 50% of the cases the patients were provided with technology for home use and only 15% used a mobile application.

Conclusion: The results support the view that health care providers can use telerehabilitation for the treatment of older persons with COPD in conjunction with usual rehabilitation.
