Troponin T in Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) Patients After Physical Exercise

The primary purpose of the study is to investigate if physical exercise is associated with myocardial damage, expressed by elevated troponin T, in patients with COPD.

Effects on Knee-extensor Exercise Training in Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) Patients

COPD patients have a reduced exercise tolerance due to a ventilatory limitation. Several studies have shown altered skeletal muscle function. The investigator want to study the physiologi...

Study to Evaluate the Effects of Tiotropium Bromide on Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) During Exercise

The purpose of this study is to determine the effect of treatment with tiotropium bromide on efficiency of gas exchange and exercise performance in COPD subjects during exercise.

Exercise and Neutrophil Function in COPD

Exercise is a cornerstone of pulmonary rehabilitation in the treatment of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD). Although researchers have shown numerous benefits with exercise in C...

The Effects of a Home Exercise Video Programme for Patients With COPD

Patients with COPD, suffer symptoms of breathlessness and leg weakness. Exercise programmes in the form of pulmonary rehabilitation (PR) have been shown to improve both of these symptoms s...

Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is a respiratory condition that causes a significant deterioration of the quality of life. However, exercise can improve the quality of life for COPD patie...

Influence of Disease Severity and Exercise Limitation on Exercise Training Intensity and Load and Health Benefits From Pulmonary Rehabilitation in Patients with COPD: AN EXPLORATORY STUDY.

Some patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) fail to achieve health benefits with pulmonary rehabilitation (PR). Exercise intensity and load represent stimulus for adaptation but it...

Effect of Bronchodilation and Exercise Training with Behavior Modification on Exercise Tolerance and Downstream Effects on Symptoms and Physical Activity in COPD.

Bronchodilation and exercise training (ExT) improve exercise tolerance in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD); however, behavior modification is required to impact on daily phys...

Exercise Performance of Lowlanders with COPD at 2,590 m: Data from a Randomized Trial.

Effects of hypobaric hypoxia at altitude on exercise performance of lowlanders with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) have not been studied in detail.

Association of thrombocytosis with COPD morbidity: the SPIROMICS and COPDGene cohorts.

Thrombocytosis has been associated with COPD prevalence and increased all-cause mortality in patients with acute exacerbation of COPD (AECOPD); but whether it is associated with morbidity in stable CO...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.
