ERS Research Seminar: The limits to exercise in COPD: new insights from new methods, Como 2007

About
Research Seminars gather a small number (20 to 100) of well-established and preferably young investigators to address scientific topics in depth and help break new ground. Research Seminars take place over two days in easy-to-reach European cities. They are scientific Seminars involving recently published work and research in progress. Participation is fully supported by the budget granted by the ERS.

Background

The objectives of this Research Seminar were to discuss the mechanisms limiting exercise in COPD and to explore potential and actual therapeutic interventions designed to improve exercise tolerance. The following topics were addressed:

  • Finding ways to better establish communication between chest physicians, respiratory physiologists, muscle biologists, kinesiologists, physiotherapists, nurses and nutritionists.
  • Identifying areas where new knowledge is needed with the purpose of drawing up a list of priorities for future research, as well as stimulating interdisciplinary collaborative research programmes between different centres.
  • Determining the major factors limiting exercise in individuals and identifying therapeutic interventions custom-designed for individual problems.
