Title: Promoting Physical Activity and Exercise in Patients With Asthma and Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease
Author(s): Corbridge, S.J.; Nyenhuis, S..M.
Subject(s): Asthma Physical activity chronic obstructive pulmonary disease
Abstract: Chronic lower respiratory diseases, including asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, are a significant public health burden owing to their high incidence and prevalence. Nurse practitioners in primary care routinely see patients with these diagnoses. Although inhaled pharmacotherapy is the mainstay of treatment for individuals with these diseases, providing an overall approach to health and wellness, which includes physical activity and exercise, is imperative in optimizing patient outcomes. The purpose of this article is to provide nurse practitioners in primary care with foundational information regarding the promotion of physical activity and exercise for patients with asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
