Oxygen cost of breathing.
The oxygen cost of breathing (\( \dot{V}{{O}_{2}} \), resp.), that is the oxygen consumed by the respiratory muscles, is an index of the energy required for ventilation. In fact, because theExpand

Work efficency and respiratory response of trained underwater swimmers using a modified self-contained underwater breathing apparatus.
Studies of the work efficiency and respiratory responses of trained underwater swimmers were made employing a modified self-contained underwater breathing apparatus (SCUBA). It was found that theExpand

Demonstration of aventilatory mass flow during ventilation and apnea in man.
Use of the whole body plethysmograph has made possible the visualization of an aventilatory mass flow (AVMF) during both ventilation and apnea in man. It has been demonstrated that even shortExpand

Some factors determining the maximum breathing capacity.
Maximum breathing capacity (MBC) predicted from the fast vital capacity (FVC) curves increases with increasing breathing rates. Experimentally determined data, however, indicate that the MBC increa...
