ABSTRACT
This article presents various studies related to the airways disease. The measurement of physical performance and domestic activity is important in the evaluation of the effectiveness of rehabilitation in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). A number of measurement tools exist for the evaluation of performance in COPD but information about the biological variability of these measures over a typical rehabilitation period is limited. Recovery from exacerbation of COPD is usually accompanied by symptomatic improvement, however, some patients do not report improvement in breathlessness.
