dc.description.abstractThis study aimed to determine if a combination of upper limb exercises with IMT have added effects in dyspnoea management, ADL’s, respiratory strength and upper limb endurance, when compared to IMT only and a control group. Outcome measures pre and post treatment included lung function tests, 6-minute walk distance, dyspnoea score and Activities of Daily Living Scale. Statistically significant changes resulted in both exercise groups but this change was more pronounced in the combination group. In this study combining upper limb and inspiratory muscle training shows trends towards positive effects.en_GB
