Physical activity in patients with COPD
TLDR
Physical activity is reduced in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease from Global Initiative for Chronic Obstructive Lung Disease stage II/ body mass index, airway obstruction, dyspnoea, exercise capacity score 1.
The metabolic syndrome in patients with chronic bronchitis and COPD: frequency and associated consequences for systemic inflammation and physical inactivity.
TLDR
Almost one-half of the patients with CB/COPD had coexisting metabolic syndrome, with a slightly lower frequency in patients with severe COPD, which is associated with an increase in the levels of some systemic inflammatory markers and physical inactivity, independent of lung function impairment.
Extrapulmonary effects of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease on physical activity: a cross-sectional study.
TLDR
Higher values of systemic inflammation and left cardiac dysfunction are associated with reduced physical activity in patients with COPD.
Disease Progression and Changes in Physical Activity in Patients with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease.
TLDR
Over time, physical activity substantially decreases across all severity stages of COPD, and this decline is paralleled by a worsening of lung function and health status, and Sustained physical inactivity is associated with a progression of exercise intolerance and muscle depletion.
Physical activity is the strongest predictor of all-cause mortality in patients with COPD: a prospective cohort study.
TLDR
It is found that objectively measured physical activity is the strongest predictor of all-cause mortality in patients with COPD and adiponectin level and vascular status provide independent prognostic information in this cohort.
Physical Activity in Patients with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease.
TLDR
Physical activity is reduced in patients with COPD from GOLD stage II/BODE score 1 on, and GOLD stages III and IV predicted best very inactive patients.
Decrease of physical activity in patients with COPD in the course of the disease
TLDR
Physical activity decreases across all severity stages of COPD in the course of the disease with relative changes being most prominent in severe stages.
Report bias favours screening
While aiming to assess prostate cancer specific mortality, Sandblom and colleagues indicate a “prostate cancer specific mortality” in the screening group of 35% and in the control group of 45%, which
The role of sustained physical inactivity in the progression of exercise intolerance and muscle depletion in COPD
TLDR
Sustained physical inactivity over time promotes a progression of exercise intolerance and muscle depletion in patients with COPD.
