Effectiveness of Care Bundle Approach on Cardio Respiratory Fitness and Physical Fitness of Patients with Chemotherapy induced Peripheral Neuropathy among Patients receiving Cancer Chemotherapy
Dr. Kavitha .S
Abstract: Chemotherapy induced peripheral neuropathy was diagnosed in approximately 71% of individuals with Cancer (WHO, 2010). A recent meta-analysis study revealed that the total prevalence rate of chemotherapy induced peripheral neuropathy among 4,179 participants receiving neurotoxic chemotherapy was 48% and increased to 68.1%, within the first month of completion of chemotherapy (Seretny, 2014). Aim: To examine the effects of a 12 week aerobic and strength training on chemotherapy induced peripheral neuropathy. Hypothesis: There is a significant improvement in VO2 max and flexibility test among participants receiving chemotherapy after receiving care bundle approach in experimental group than control group. A true experimental ?repeated measure design was used for this study. 120 participants receiving cancer chemotherapy were selected in this study.Simple random sampling technique was used to select 120 participants and were allotted to 60 in either control or experimental group by random table. Result: VO2max: The experimental posttest 3 VO2 max score was not statistically significant from the control posttest 3 score. (p = 0.469) in males. Flexibility test: The pretest and post test score showed no statistical significant difference in control group. (p=0.151) for males but showed a significant difference (p=0.008) for females.The findings in the present study indicated that combined training did not produce the expected strength and aerobic power benefits to cancer participants.
