The purpose of this exploratory study is to determine the feasibility, acceptability, and efficacy of an exercise persistence intervention for patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) following pulmonary rehabilitation (PR).
Exercise, a cornerstone of PR, is effective in improving dyspnea, functioning, and health related quality of life (HRQL) in patients with COPD. However, these improvements gradually dissipate following program completion. There are currently few successful interventions that support patients' persistence with community-based exercise after PR and that have closely monitored the potentially negative impact that COPD exacerbations have on exercise behaviors. Emerging technologies such as wirelessly enabled personal digital assistants (PDA) may provide an innovative means to support exercise persistence through real-time collaborative monitoring of exercise and signs and symptoms of COPD exacerbations and reinforcement to enhance exercise self-efficacy. Patient graduates of two PR programs who have COPD (n=20) will first undergo a 2-week run-in prior to being randomized to either the MOBILE (Mobilizing Support for Long-term Exercise) intervention or attention control for 6 months.

The exercise capacity of an individual as measured by endurance (maximal exercise duration and/or maximal attained work load) during an EXERCISE TEST.
Controlled physical activity, more strenuous than at rest, which is performed in order to allow assessment of physiological functions, particularly cardiovascular and pulmonary, but also aerobic capacity. Maximal (most intense) exercise is usually required but submaximal exercise is also used. The intensity of exercise is often graded, using criteria such as rate of work done, oxygen consumption, and heart rate.
Tapering-off physical activity from vigorous to light, to gradually return the body to pre-exercise condition and metabolic state.
Asthma attacks following a period of exercise. Usually the induced attack is short-lived and regresses spontaneously. The magnitude of postexertional airway obstruction is strongly influenced by the environment in which exercise is performed (i.e. inhalation of cold air during physical exertion markedly augments the severity of the airway obstruction; conversely, warm humid air blunts or abolishes it).
Alternating sets of exercise that work out different muscle groups and that also alternate between aerobic and anaerobic exercises, which, when combined together, offer an overall program to improve strength, stamina, balance, or functioning.

COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease)
COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) is used for a number of conditions including chronic bronchitis and emphysema, which all lead to the airways in the lungs becoming damaged and thus narrower, making inhalation and exhalation harder...
