Endurance training in COPD improves exercise capacity, and high intensity training may have greater physiologic benefits than lower-intensity exercises. Dyspnea and fatigue often limit patients with severe COPD from high-intensity exercises. This randomized trial compared 30 severe COPD patients awaiting lung transplantation assigned to high intensity interval training to 30 patients assigned to lower-impact continuous […]

Best practice management of lung transplantation recipients includes both pre- and post-transplantation rehabilitation programs. However, the impact of a specific exercise intervention on recovery and post-transplant outcomes has not been rigorously studied. This randomized controlled trial studied the impact of a 3-month supervised exercise training program in lung transplant recipients with an uncomplicated post-transplant course. […]
