Background: Aging may contribute to decreased physical activity in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). We explored the predictors of physical inactivity in older patients with COPD. Methods: Thirty male patients ...
Pulmonary and Extrapulmonary Features in Bronchopulmonary Dysplasia: A Comparison with Healthy Children
[Purpose] The aim of this study was to compare functional capacity and peripheral muscle strength in preterm children with bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD) with those of age-matched full-term healthy controls. [Subjects ...
Extrapulmonary Features Of Bronchiectasis: Muscle Function, Exercise Capacity, Fatigue, And Health Status
Background There are limited number of studies investigating extrapulmonary manifestations of bronchiectasis. The purpose of this study was to compare peripheral muscle function, exercise capacity, fatigue, and health ...
Fatigue And Multidimensional Disease Severity In Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease
Background and aims Fatigue is associated with longitudinal ratings of health in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Although the degree of airflow obstruction is often used to grade disease severity ...
