PG18 Targeting the locomotor and respiratory muscles in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease: novel interventional tools and rehabilitation strategies

Postgraduate Course
Chairs: A. Pires De Dias Marques (Aveiro, Portugal), E. Barreiro Portela (Barcelona, Spain)
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.
