Abstract

Background: A few studies have implied that patients with bronchiectasis have a more inactive lifestyle than healthy counterparts do. The main objective of this study was to compare physical activity (PA) levels subjectively and objectively between patients with bronchiectasis and healthy individuals using an accelerometer and a questionnaire.
