Background To investigate the effectiveness of Liuzijue exercise on chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) in the stable phase. Methods We searched six electronic bibliographic databases (PubMed, EMBASE, The Cochrane Library, Web of Science, CNKI, and Wan Fang Data) from inception to August 2018. Randomized controlled trials (RCTs) were included if they evaluated the effect of Liuzijue exercise on stable COPD. Cochrane Collaboration risk-of-bias tool (Cochrane Handbook 5.1.0) was used to…
