A Comparative Study of the Effects of Endurance and Resisted Exercise on Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease in Elderly Patients – A randomized Controlled Trial

This study compared the effects of endurance versus resisted exercise on chronic obstructive pulmonary disease in obese elderly patients and evaluated the effect of exercise training on pulmonary functions, peripheral oxygen saturation, and dyspnea score. This study approved that both types of exercise have beneficial effects on COPD patients while endurance exercise showed greater improvement than resisted exercise in obese elderly patients with COPD.


Objectives: This study aim was to compare the impacts of endurance exercise to the impacts of resisted exercise on COPD in elderly patients.
