Abstract

Purpose: It is known that tobacco smoke exposure is a risk factor for the development of pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH). In addition, tobacco smoke exposure can cause numerous health problems. This study aimed to compare functional capacity, respiratory muscle strength, and physical activity level between the patients with PAH who have or do not have tobacco smoke exposure.
