ABSTRACT
The article focuses on exercise training and inspiratory muscle training in patients with bronchiectasis. Pulmonary rehabilitation is now recommended by many professional respiratory societies as the standard of care for patients with chronic lung disease. This has occurred because well designed prospective randomized controlled trails using valid responsive and interpretable outcome measures have convinced clinicians of its effectiveness. The article randomized 32 patients with idiopathic bronchiectasis into one of three group: pulmonary rehabilitation plus inspiratory muscle training, pulmonary rehabilitation plus sham IMT, and a control group. The rehabilitation patients all underwent 8 weeks of exercise training, attending for supervised outpatient sessions twice a week with a third session at home.
