[Prediction of exercise capacity after lung resection in patients with chronic airflow limitation].

To assess the usefulness of a method for predicting postoperative peak oxygen uptake based on lost lung function after lung resection (VO2peak-PPO) and to establish the underlying physiological foundation for the relation between VO2peak-PPO and the measured postoperative value VO2peak-PO), we studied 29 patients (26 men) [age 60 (SD9)] with chronic airflow… CONTINUE READING
