Pulmonary hypertension (PH), defined as invasively measured mean pulmonary artery pressure ≥25 mmHg, occurs in many different diseases. The focus of this task force was mainly on patients with pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) and chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension (CTEPH). This summaries the current state of knowledge and open questions regarding the clinical effects of exercise training, training modalities and mechanisms of action in patients with PH.
