Importance of Exercise

A reduction in exercise tolerance is one of the main complaints of people with chronic lung disease.


Exercise training is an essential component of a pulmonary rehabilitation program.


Systematic reviews of randomised controlled trials have consistently shown that an improvement in exercise tolerance is one of the main benefits that can be obtained after a pulmonary rehabilitation program is completed by patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, bronchiectasis, interstitial lung disease, and pulmonary hypertension.1
