RATIONALE Exercise-induced dynamic hyperinflation contributes to decreased exercise tolerance in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). It is unknown whether respiratory retraining (ventilation-feedback [VF] training) can affect exercise-induced dynamic hyperinflation and increase exercise tolerance. OBJECTIVES To determine whether patients with(More)
Oxygen therapy improves submaximal exercise tolerance in hypoxemic patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). This study compared the standard nasal cannula, reservoir nasal cannula, and a demand flow device in 15 male hypoxemic patients with COPD. On six separate occasions each subject used, in a randomized order, all three systems while(More)
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the efficacy of a unique program of ventilation-feedback training combined with leg-cycle exercise to improve exertional endurance and decrease perceived dyspnea in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Thirty-nine patients (67.5 +/- 8.1 yr of age) with moderate to severe COPD (42.6% of(More)
STUDY OBJECTIVE To determine whether a reservoir nasal cannula (RNC) (Oxymizer) provides an arterial hemoglobin oxygen saturation as measured by pulse oximetry (SpO2) equivalent to that provided by the standard nasal cannula (SNC) during sleep in hypoxemic patients with COPD while reducing oxygen flow requirement and cost. DESIGN The study took place in a(More)
