Information and Patient Support

Use of Bronchodilators

  • Prescribed bronchodilators should be given before exercise training starts.  This medication should only be given if spirometry results confirm that such use provides benefits beyond that provided by the long-acting bronchodilators that the patient may be prescribed.
  • Increased lung function after bronchodilator use may allow the patient to exercise:
    • At a greater intensity.
    • For a longer duration.
    • With less dyspnoea.
