Publication: Can we assess exercise capacity using the simple 1-minute sit-to-stand test?

and Thomas Radtke was recently published in the European Respiratory Journal examining the use of a simple exercise test in the assessment of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) patients.

in many practice settings.
