Short term effects of exercise training on exercise capacity and quality of life in patients with pulmonary arterial hypertension
MetadataShow full item record
This study investigated the effects of exercise training in individuals with pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH). Improvements in exercise capacity occurred following a supervised, outpatient exercise training program. Importantly, this study demonstrated that these benefits were maintained with an unsupervised home exercise program. Further, this study validated a quality of life measure, the Cambridge Pulmonary Hypertension Outcome Review, which has been shown to be valid and reliable in an Australian and New Zealand PAH population.
