Registration for this session is additional to the congress registration fee and is €171 on site, €153 standard.
Aims : To update on the benefits of exercise training and other multimodal therapeutic strategies that aim to combat skeletal muscle wasting in COPD patients; to instruct on the currently available non-pharmacological therapeutic strategies that optimise the benefits of lower limb and respiratory muscle training and nutritional support when they are selectively applied to COPD patients with specific phenotypes; to learn about new advances in the diagnosis of COPD locomotor and respiratory muscle dysfunction; to familiarise participants with novel devices available that are used to mitigate dynamic lung hyperinflation and dyspnoea sensations during rehabilitation exercise training.
