Conclusion: Preliminary results demonstrate that pre-op patients have physical impairments and many do not meet PA recommendations. This randomised trial will test the impact of a post-op exercise and self-management program in this population.

Conclusion: Respiratory muscle strength was negatively affected by sedentary behavior, impaired pulmonary function and functional capacity in lung cancer. More effective pulmonary rehabilitation programs can be implemented by determining factors affecting respiratory muscle strength and improving these factors.Mean/MedianMIP%90±26.86MEP%57.76±15.2PEF (%)93.9±19.076MWT (m)459±79.5IPAQ total score421.2IPAQ sitting (min)420

Introduction: Cancer therapy administered in lung cancer (LC) has negative effects on maximal exercise capacity, pulmonary function and fatigue level. Cardiopulmonary exercise testing (CPET) is gold standard evaluation method of exercise capacity. However, limited study investigated maximal exercise capacity, pulmonary function and fatigue in lung cancer patients with complete remission.Aims: To compare cardiopulmonary exercise test parameters, pulmonary function and fatigue in lung cancer patients with complete remission and controls.Methods: 21 LC patients (62.19±6.44y, 17M) and 19 controls (58.94±6.80y, 15...

Conclusion: In terms of importance, it has been observed that the protection of children’s health and disease risk are at the foremost among both groups. Also, the impact of health institutions on smoking cessation was seen insignificant in both groups. We think that more important warnings should be more involved in cigarette packages.Keywords: cigarette packs, warnings, smoking

CONCLUSIONS: Exercise training increased exercise capacity and quadriceps muscle force of people following lung resection for NSCLC. Our findings also suggest improvements on the physical component score of general HRQoL and decreased dyspnoea. This systematic review emphasises the importance of exercise training as part of the postoperative management of people with NSCLC. PMID: 31204439 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
