W09 - W09: PT&RT: Current Exercise Research in CF

Nov 2, 2017 9:45am ‐ Nov 2, 2017 11:05am


Description

Exercise intolerance is a common phenotype observed in patients with CF. In fact, exercise intolerance has not only been shown to predict mortality, it also increases the risk of hospitalizations and is associated with more pulmonary infections. Accordingly, better understanding of physical activity and exercise capacity in patients with CF is essential to improve the quality of life in these patients.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Define the importance of exercise capacity in patients with CF.
  2. Describe how to improve exercise capacity in CF.
  3. Discuss the impact that treatment has on exercise capacity in CF.
