Last month we summarised the systematic review by Radtke et al 2022. The review concluded that physical activity interventions of 6 months or more probably improves exercise capacity in people with cystic fibrosis compared to no training. The certainty of evidence was rated as moderate. Adverse events are rare and there is no reason to discourage physical activity in people with cystic fibrosis. The certainty of evidence was rated as low.
