Little is known about changes in physical activity in subjects with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and its impact on mortality. Therefore, we aimed to study changes in physical activity in subjects with and without COPD and the impact of physical activity on mortality risk. Subjects from the Copenhagen City Heart Study with at least two consecutive examinations were selected. Each examination included a self-administered questionnaire and clinical examination. 1270 COPD subjects… 

Physical activity and fatigue in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease e A

To compare physical activity levels among subjects with and without COPD in a population based study, and to evaluate if concomitant heart disease and fatigue was associated to physical activity.

Interventions to modify physical activity in patients with COPD: where do we go from here?

Assessing participation in physical activity as an outcome in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) has received growing attention in recent years [1, 2]. This can be explained

One-year Mortality in COPD After an Exacerbation: The Effect of Physical Activity Changes During the Event

PA is the strongest predictor of dying in the following year, i.e., those with worsened PA from baseline to 2 months after an eCOPD or with very low PA levels have a higher risk.

Understanding the impact of physical activity in COPD outcomes: moving forward

A longitudinal analysis of COPD patients over 5 years demonstrated that the change in physical activity over the first 2 years significantly predicted hospitalisations 3 years later: those without regular physical activity, those who maintained a low level of physical activity or those who decreased their physical activity were at significantly greater risk of being hospitalised than others.

A Non-Interventional, Cross-Sectional Study to Evaluate Factors Relating to Daily Step Counts and Physical Activity in Japanese Patients with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease: STEP COPD

Reduced PA was observed in the Japanese COPD patients with the majority of them being GOLD stage I/II, and employment status, GOLD stage, and mMRC dyspnea score could help identify patients at risk of reduced PA.

Pulmonary Rehabilitation and Physical Activity in Patients with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease.

Changing physical activity behavior in patients with COPD needs an interdisciplinary approach, bringing together respiratory medicine, rehabilitation sciences, social sciences, and behavioral sciences.

Relationship between balance and physical activity measured by an activity monitor in elderly COPD patients

Impairments in balance and reductions in physical activity were observed in the COPD group and Deficits in balance are independently associated with physical inactivity.

Physical Activity in Overlap Syndrome of COPD and Obstructive Sleep Apnea: Relationship With Markers of Systemic Inflammation.

People with OVS have significantly lower levels of PA and higher levels of inflammatory biomarkers, compared to COPD alone, and lower PA is significantly associated with higher IL-6 levels in OVS.



Physical activity and clinical and functional status in COPD.

More physically active COPD patients show better functional status in terms of Dlco, Pemax, 6MWD, Vo(2)peak, and systemic inflammation.

Physical activity in patients with COPD

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.

Decrease of physical activity in patients with COPD in the course of the disease

Physical activity decreases across all severity stages of COPD in the course of the disease with relative changes being most prominent in severe stages.

Regular physical activity reduces hospital admission and mortality in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease: a population based cohort study

The recommendation that COPD patients be encouraged to maintain or increase their levels of regular physical activity should be considered in future COPD guidelines, since it is likely to result in a relevant public health benefit.

Longitudinal Changes in Directly Measured Physical Activity in Patients With Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease: THE TRAJECTORY OF CHANGE

Directly measured physical activity decreases over time in COPD, similar to other outcomes of importance.

Level of daily physical activity in individuals with COPD compared with healthy controls

It appears that patients with COPD have a significantly reduced duration, intensity, and counts of DPA when compared to healthy control subjects, and the intensity of COPD seems to be less affected by COPD than duration and counts.

Impact of changes in physical activity on health-related quality of life among patients with COPD

Maintaining a low level of PA or decreasing PA over the study period was associated with a significant HRQoL decline, whereas an increase in PA can improve HRZoL parameters.

Regular physical activity modifies smoking-related lung function decline and reduces risk of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease: a population-based cohort study.

This prospective study shows that moderate to high levels of regular physical activity are associated with reduced lung function decline and COPD risk among smokers.

Physical activity in COPD patients: patterns and bouts

COPD patients of all spirometric severity stages engage in physical activity bouts of moderate-to-vigorous intensities, and patients with severe and very severe COPD perform their daily activities in fewer and shorter bouts than those in mild and moderate stages.
