To analyze the efficacy of medication in combination with rehabilitation on chronic obstructive pulmonary disease is the objective of the study. Between January 2017 and June 2018, a total of 160 chronic obstructive pulmonary disease patients treated in this hospital were enrolled as the subjects and randomized into two groups, with 80 subjects in each group, for regular medication. Subjects in the observation group additionally took rehabilitation. 3 mo later, we compared the pulmonary function, blood-gas indicators, scores of the relevant symptoms and the frequency of acute onset. Following treatment, pulmonary function and bloodgas indicators were somehow ameliorated in patients of two groups with improvement in the performance of 6 min walking test and activity of daily living, a decrease in the modified Medical Research Council score. During the 1 y follow-up, patients in two groups had significant decreases in the frequency of acute onset and hospitalization (all p<0.05). Differences of the indicators between two groups showed statistical significance (p<0.05). On the basis of medication for chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, rehabilitation can efficiently improve the pulmonary function, blood-gas indicators and life quality of patients.
