The product of walking distance and body weight (D x W) mimics the work of walking. We hypothesized the superiority of D x W to walking distance (D) alone in any correlation with lung function, anaerobic threshold (AT) and maximal oxygen uptake (VO2max). We further hypothesized that the D x W product for a 6-min walk test (6 MWT) would correlate with the AT and VO2max because all three are markers of exercise ability. Thirty-three male chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) patients with… CONTINUE READING
