UNLABELLED The 6-min walk (6MW) test is commonly used to assess exercise capacity in patients with COPD and to track functional change resulting from disease progression or therapeutic intervention. Not surprisingly, distance covered has been the preferred outcome for this test. However, distance walked does not account for differences in body weight that are known to influence exercise capacity. OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to evaluate the 6-min distance x body weight product (6MWORK… CONTINUE READING
