Mechanics of the canine diaphragm.
Diaphragmatic force-length behavior was assessed in anesthetized dogs using two techniques. One employed measurements in a diaphragm strip with intact nerve and blood supply; the second relatedExpand

Function of the isolated paced diaphragm and the cervical accessory muscles in C1 quadriplegics.
Function studies of the electrically paced diaphragm and of the sternomastoid and trapezius muscles acting alone were carried out in 3 young C1 quadriplegic men. Phrenic pacing offers the uniqueExpand

Relative contributions of rib cage and abdomen to breathing in normal subjects
By use of the method of Konno and Mead and the respiratory magnetometer, the partition of respired gas volumes into rib cage and diaphragm-abdomen components was accomplished in 81 normal subjectsExpand

The motor unit profile of the rat soleus in experimental myopathy and reinnervation
The number of functional motor units in normal, acute myopathic, and reinnervated rat solei was determined by an electrophysiologic method. The number of motor units was about the same as half of theExpand

Respiratory muscle function in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease: its relationship to disability and to respiratory therapy.
Abundant clinical and physiologic data exist to suggest that respiratory muscle dysfunction occurs in patients with COPD and may contribute to respiratory symptoms, disability, and respiratoryExpand

The mild cubital tunnel syndrome
Thirty patients with a mild cubital tunnel syndrome were followed clinically and electrophysiologically for a mean period of 22 months. Ninety percent became asymptomatic. It was possible toExpand

Effects of lung volume and electrode position on the esophageal diaphragmatic EMG.
In anesthetized dogs studied both supine and prone, the electromyogram (EMG) of the diaphragm recorded directly from three portions of the diaphragm (crural, anterior, and costal) was compared withExpand

Thoracoabdominal motion in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
Studies of thoracoabdominal motion using the respiratory magnetometer were performed in 30 patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. Volume equivalency of thoracic and abdominalExpand
