Background Impaired exercise capacity is one of the most important prognostic factors for patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). The 6-min walk test (6MWT) is a widely used method for assessing exercise capacity in patients with COPD. However, the 6MWT requires considerable effort from patients. Therefore, a less physically demanding, but also noninvasive, method is warranted. The objective of this study was to determine the predictors of the 6MWT distance (6MWD) in patients with COPD. Methods This retrospective …
