Table 5 Differences across disease severity for sedentary behavior, physical activity and exercise capacity for patients with bronchiectasis

From: Sedentary behaviour and physical activity in bronchiectasis: a cross-sectional study

  Disease severity: Mild BSI score ≤ 4(n = 27) Disease severity: Moderate/severe BSI score ≥ 5(n = 28)
Sedentary behavior time (mins/day) 632 (64) 635 (88)
Light-lifestyle physical activity time (mins/day) 210 (55) 204 (71)
Total MVPA time (mins/day) 32 (19) 18 (18)a
MVPA10+ time (mins/day) 8 (10) 5 (8)
Activity energy expenditure (kcals/day) 390 (173) 231 (159)b
Daily step counts 6898 (2783) 5137 (2532)c
Total physical activity time (mins/day) 242 (65) 221 (84)
MST (metres) 593 (323) 432 (199)d
  1. Results are Mean (SD).
  2. Note: Disease severity expressed as Bronchiectasis Severity Index score [22].
