Description

The assessment of physical activity and fitness level is a central component in developing an overall care plan and providing appropriate guidance to CF patients regarding exercise and physical activity. Recent 'best practice' publications by international groups have outlined the assessment of exercise capacity, physical activity, and activity guidance for patients. These 'best practices' will be reviewed in this symposium.

Educational Objectives:
  • Explain the utility of exercise testing and the assessment of habitual physical activity in clinical evaluation and management.
  • Select and interpret results of laboratory and field exercise tests.
  • Summarize patients regarding exercise and physical activity as an intervention.
