Correction to: Long-acting bronchodilators improve exercise capacity in COPD patients: a systematic review and meta-analysis

The original article was published in Respiratory Research 2018 19:18

Correction

In the original publication [1] is an incorrect sentence in the abstract under Conclusions. The modified text is indicated in bold. The correct version can be found in this Erratum:

Incorrect version:

Conclusions: Long-acting bronchodilators improve exercise capacity in COPD. The main effect of long-acting bronchodilators seems to be a decrease of basal IC rather than a modification of dynamic hyperinflation during exercise. The efficacy in terms of endurance time seems higher in studies which enrolled patients with hyperinflation, with a similar efficacy on walking or cycling.

Correct version

The main effect of long-acting bronchodilators seems to be an increase of basal IC rather than a modification of dynamic hyperinflation during exercise. The efficacy in terms of endurance time seems higher in studies which enrolled patients with hyperinflation, with a similar efficacy on walking or cycling.
