Abstract Introduction:<\b>
Regular physical activity (PA) has become increasingly important and widely accepted as part of the therapy and rehabilitation programs in cystic fibrosis (CF) management. However, to date it is still unclear the current levels of PA, intensities and accumulation in youth with CF. Method: Electronic searches for PA studies in youth with CF were performed in Scopus, Pubmed, Medline, Web of Science and Google Scholar until January 2018. Inclusion criteria were including sample <18 years of age and measurement of PA. Relevant studies were graded according to the Oxford Levels of Evidence. Results:<\b>
269 search results were screened. After careful reviewing, only 15 studies met the inclusion criteria for this review. Several methods were used to determine PA levels: accelerometers (5), self-reported questionnaires (6), indirect calorimetry (1), doubly labelled water (1), activity monitors (1) and pedometers (1). PA levels of CF participants were compared with healthy controls in 60% of the studies, although results were inconsistent. A broad range of participants with CF who accomplished PA guidelines was found (2.1-90%) and only 3 studies reported daily time engaged in moderate to-vigorous PA (44-267 min/day). Conclusion:<\b>
Evidence from studies reviewed suggests inconsistency in measurement of PA levels in youth with CF. Further studies should be addressed in: 1) monitoring PA using objective measures, accelerometry preferably, to obtain valuable information on usual PA levels in children with CF; and 2) determining to what extent this special population comply with current PA guidelines. External funding details This study was supported by Universitat de València (UV-INV-AE17-698217).
