Assessment of Aerobic Exercise Adverse Effects during COPD Exacerbation Hospitalization

Introduction. Aerobic exercise performed after hospital discharge for exacerbated COPD patients is already recommended to improve respiratory and skeletal muscle strength, increase tolerance to activity, and reduce the sensation of dyspnea. Previous studies have shown that anaerobic activity can clinically benefit patients hospitalized with exacerbated COPD. However, there is...

Smoking and Early COPD as Independent Predictors of Body Composition, Exercise Capacity, and Health Status

The effects of tobacco smoke, mild/moderate COPD disease and their combined effect on health status (HS), body composition (BC), and exercise capacity (EC) impairment are still unclear. We hypothesized that smoking and early COPD have a joint negative influence on these outcomes. We evaluated 32 smokers (smoking history >10 pack/years), 32 mild/moderate COPD (current smokers or...

Vitamin D role in smoking women and cardiac remodeling

Background The objective of the study is to evaluate the influence of serum vitamin D concentrations and smoking status in cardiac structure and function. Methods The participants of this study were healthy women smokers (n = 18, mean age 52.8 years), ex-smokers (n = 18, mean age 51.7 years), and never smokers (n = 19, mean age 44.4 years). All participants underwent assessment...
