Body composition analysis is useful for objective evaluation of malnutrition in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). The purpose of this study was to evaluate the influence of body composition on exercise performance by patients with COPD using a new method of bioelectrical impedance analysis. Twenty patients with COPD performed incremental exercise ramp tests to the symptom‐limited maximum and constant work rate tests for 10 min. Their body compositions were measured by bioelectrical impedance …
