The 6-minute walk test (6MWT) is an easy to perform and practical test that is used in the assessment of patients with a variety of cardiopulmonary diseases including pulmonary hypertension. It simply measures the distance that a patient can walk on a flat, hard surface during a period of six minutes. The test is “self-paced”, where patients select their own level of intensity, which helps to more accurately reflect “everyday activities” for each particular person.
All are invited to come out and join us for this short walk that will help educate the public about the challenges faced by those living with PH while raising funds to support the programs and services offered by PHA Canada. Come out and walk with us or just to support the other walkers!
