Evaluation of Pulmonary Functions and Aerobic Capacity in Patients with Ankylosing Spondylitis and Rheumatoid Arthritis
Objective: Ankylosing spondylitis (AS) and rheumatoid arthritis (RA) are chronic inflammatory diseases that mainly involve the musculoskeletal system but also affect the cardiovascular and pulmonary systems. In this study, we aimed to compare pulmonary functions and aerobic capacities of healthy controls with AS and RA patients, and to investigate the effects of disease-specific evaluation parameters and quality of life on pulmonary functions and aerobic capacity. Material and Methods: This cross-sectionalstudy included 87 participantsincluding AS (n=36), RA patients(n=27) and healthy controls (n=24). Patients were evaluated for disease activity, functional status and quality of life. In addition, 6-minute walking test (6-MWT), exercise tolerance test and ergospirometric procedure were performed to determine exercise tolerance and functional capacities of patients and healthy controls. Results: Forced expiratory volume in one second (FEV1), forced vital capacity (FVC), peak oxygen uptake (VO2 peak) and 6-MWT values were higher in healthy subjects than in AS and RA patients. In regression analysis, it was seen that the most effective factor on FEV1 and FVC in AS patients and on VO2 peak values in RA patients was the age. In AS patients, spinal mobility and thoracic expansion were associated with pulmonary functions and functional status was asscociated with aerobic capacity. In RA patients, the only factor associated with pulmonary function and aerobic capacity was determined asthe physical function. Conclusion: Pulmonary functions may be adversely affected in rheumatic diseases. The negative effects of musculoskeletalsystem limitations on the pulmonary system and the positive reflections of functional well-being demonstrate the benefits of physical activity and emphasize the importance of aerobic exercises, especially in RA patients with low aerobic capacity.
