BACKGROUND The 6-min walk distance (6MWD) is widely used to evaluate functional capacity in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). AIM To examine predictors for longitudinal change in 6MWD including self-reported physical activity, smoking habits, body composition, exacerbations, comorbidity and lung function. METHODS The cohort included 389 patients aged 44-75 years, with clinically stable COPD in GOLD stages II-IV. The follow-up time was 3 years. Measurements included… CONTINUE READING
