Additional clinical uses of the 6MWT

The 6MWT has been widely used in other clinical situations, including cystic fibrosis [20], chronic heart failure (CHF) [21], prior to lung transplantation [22] and primary pulmonary hypertension [23, 24]. It has also been employed in patients with interstitial lung disease (n=40) [25].

The test has also been employed in the assessment of patients with peripheral vascular disease [26].
