SESSION TITLE: Pulmonary Rehabilitation
SESSION TYPE: Original Investigation Poster
PRESENTED ON: Wednesday, October 26, 2016 at 01:30 PM - 02:30 PM
PURPOSE: Comprehensive rehabilitation for patients with advanced pulmonary and cardiac disease produces increases in maximal exercise tolerance, maximal oxygen uptake and reduced symptoms of perceived breathlessness but not standard measures of pulmonary function. We postulated that other physiologic measures might correlate with this improvement in exercise performance and reduction of symptoms.
