We aimed to measure physical activity in patients with COPD, to identify the disease stage at which physical activity becomes limited, to investigate the relationship of clinical characteristics with physical activity, to evaluate the predictive power of clinical characteristics identifying very inactive patients, and to analyze the reliability of physical activity measurements. 163 patients with COPD (GOLD I –IV; BODE 0 –10) and 29 patients with chronic bronchitis (normal spirometry; former…

eHealth to stimulate physical activity in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease
The overall aim of the thesis was to improve and/or maintain PA in patients with COPD after PR and the development of an eHealth intervention, which did not affect PA, physical capacity, health related quality of life, or BMI.
Physical Activity Monitoring: A New Outcome Facing many Challenges, but Yielding Promising Results
Improving physical activity allows the patient to better participate in daily life and –perhaps more importantly – may spin-off long-term health benefits.
[Expert meeting obstructive airway disease measuring and evaluating in COPD].
An overview on the contributions presented in an expert meeting in February, 2015 deals with the analysis and evaluation of the multiple dimensions of COPD and the clinical significance of morphological findings in HRCT and MRT is analyzed.
Smoking and Physical Activity Patterns of U.S. Military Veterans With Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease: An Analysis of 2017 Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System.
Veterans were significantly more likely to have COPD compared with non-veterans, and both male and female veterans were less likely to meet aerobic physical activity recommendations compared with other veterans.

Clinical trials in COPD patients aim at achieving progress in diagnosis and treatment. Study results should be applicable to a large number of patients. However, an analysis of the methods and design
Interventions to Increase Physical Activity in People With COPD: Systematic Review
The aim of this systematic review was to examine the effects of interventions designed to increase physical activity (PA) in people with COPD and to identify studies that met inclusion criteria.
Update in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease 2008.
The Evaluation of COPD Longitudinally to Identify Predictive Surrogate Endpoints (ECLIPSE) study aims to define clinically relevant COPD subtypes and identify genetic factors and biomarkers that correlate with these COPDSubtypes and predict disease progression.

Physical activity and its determinants in severe chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
One third of severe COPD patients in this study reported a level of physical activity lower than the equivalent to walking less than 15 min x d(-1), and apart from sociodemographic variables, comorbidity, health-related quality of life, and long-term oxygen therapy were the only factors independently associated with a low level ofPhysical activity.
Characteristics of physical activities in daily life in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
Physical activities and movement intensity in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease are assessed with the DynaPort activity monitor and functional exercise capacity is the strongest correlate of physical activities in daily life.
Extrapulmonary effects of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease on physical activity: a cross-sectional study.
Higher values of systemic inflammation and left cardiac dysfunction are associated with reduced physical activity in patients with COPD.
Quantifying physical activity in daily life with questionnaires and motion sensors in COPD
The present article aims to compare and discuss the two kinds of instruments more commonly used to quantify the amount of physical activity performed by COPD patients in daily life: subjective methods (questionnaires, diaries) and motion sensors (electronic or mechanical methods).
Activity Monitoring and Energy Expenditure in COPD Patients: A Validation Study
This physiologic activity monitor provides a valid and reproducible estimate of energy expenditure during slow to moderate paced walking in a laboratory setting and represents an objective method to assess activity in COPD subjects.
Evaluation of a movement detector to measure daily activity in patients with chronic lung disease.
It is concluded that motion detectors may provide repeatable measures of daily activity that are related to physiological impairment and improvement following treatment and appear to be complementary to estimates of exercise limitation obtained using health questionnaires.
Usefulness of the Medical Research Council (MRC) dyspnoea scale as a measure of disability in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease
The MRC dyspnoea scale is a simple and valid method of categorising patients with COPD in terms of their disability that could be used to complement FEV1 in the classification of COPD severity.
Activity monitors can detect brisk walking in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
Activity monitors have the capacity to discriminate brisk walking from other domestic activities and can be used to identify low levels of domestic activity in the patient population.
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.
