[Associations between breathing pattern during submaximal exercise and exercise capacity in patients with pulmonary emphysema].

Abstract

We sought to clarify the factors associated with exercise capacity in patients with pulmonary emphysema. Exercise capacities of 20 men with pulmonary emphysema were evaluated by bicycle ergometery, and the results were used to divide the subjects into two groups: high exercise capacity (n = 10) and low exercise capacity (n = 10). Pulmonary-function tests… (More)
