JOURNAL CLUB – OSADNIK

 

 

On this episode, I review a paper entitled “The likelihood of improving physical activity after pulmonary rehabilitation is increased in patients with COPD who have better exercise tolerance”, by Christian Osadnik and co-authors, which was published in the International Journal of COPD in 2018.

This is an open access paper, which can be found at https://www.dovepress.com/the-likelihood-of-improving-physical-activity-after-pulmonary-rehabili-peer-reviewed-fulltext-article-COPD.

Some of the tests and resources mentioned in this episode are:

  1. The ATS/ERS standards for conducting a six-minute walk test
  2. The International Physical Activity Questionnaire
