Abstract: Do patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) achieve a different distance on the six minute walk test (6MWT) conducted on a 10m course versus on a 30m course? When assessing the distance on a 6MWT conducted on a 10m course, is it valid to use existing reference equations that were generated on longer courses?
