The aim of the study is to investigate the additional effects of the use of NIV during exercise within a 3-week PR program on exercise capacity in COPD patients with chronic hypercapnic re...
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.
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...
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 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...
Despite the many benefits of performing physical exercise in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), information on the response of acute cardiac autonomic modulation in subjects w...
One of the well-known but less-investigated effects of pulmonary rehabilitation in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is the change in breathing pattern toward a more efficient...
Patients with stable chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) frequently exhibit unintentional accentuated peripheral muscle loss and dysfunction. Skeletal muscle mass in these patients is a stron...
Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a progressive and disabling disease that has been associated with aging. Several factors may potentially impair performance during exercise in elderly p...
COPD and obesity often coexist and there is a complex interaction between them. Our aim was to evaluate the prevalence of obesity in a secondary care COPD population. Furthermore, the presence of como...
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...
