Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is the fourth leading cause of death in the world but is projected to be the third leading cause of death in 2020. This study aimed to examine the effect of combined chest physiotherapy and Active Cycle Breathing Technique (ACBT) on oxygen saturation and respiratory rate. The research method used was a quasiexperimental approach with pre -test and post-test control group design. The sampling technique used by the researcher was purposive sampling with 60 responde nts, divided into 30 intervention groups and 30 control groups. The results obtained were there were significant differences in the respiratory rate in the control group and the intervention group after being treated with a value of p=0.001 (p <0.05). The difference in the proportion of the ability to excrete sputum in the intervention group was 7 times more productive than the control group. It is hoped that nursing practice and nursing education will increase knowledge and skills in providing chest physiotherapy and ACBT so that they can apply these actions to patients who have sputum retention problems in the airway, especially COPD patients.

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a chronic lung disease characterized by progressive non-reversible or partially reversible obstruction of airflow obstruction in the airways. This study aimed to determine the effect of a combination of upper and lower limb resistance training on respiratory rate and oxygen saturation in
patients with chronic stable obstructive pulmonary disease undergoing medical rehabilitation programs. The study used a quasi-experimentaltwo-group pre-test post-test. The samples were selected by consecutive sampling technique.Data were analyzed using descriptive statistics, paired t-test and independent t-test.The mMRC scale was obtained the most at mMRC1.The frequency of patients with pulmonary function disorders in obstruction in the moderate category was 55.6% in the treatment group and 66.67% in the control group. Restrictions in the moderate category were 55.6% in the treatment group and 61.11% in the control group and the most Brinkman Index values were in the weight category of 55.6% in the treatment group and 72.22% in the control group. Respiratory frequency and oxygen saturation in the patient obtained a value of 91.38±2.25, then the oxygen saturation value decreased for a certain time to be 90.22±0.51. Whereas in the treatment group it was 92.06±2.88 while after the exercise it became 95.72±2.32. This study concludes that there is an effect of the combination of upper and lower limb resistance training on respiratory rate and oxygen saturation in patients with Chronic Stable Obstructive Pulmonary Disease.
