In a retrospective cohort study, researchers examined the relationship between self-reported physical activity and 12-month post-discharge mortality in COPD patients. Those who were engaged in 150 or more minutes of moderate to vigorous physical activity (e.g., brisk walking) had a 47 percent lower risk of death when compared to their inactive cohort. Those engaging in lower rates of activity still had a 28 percent lower risk of death.
