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.
