Breathlessness induced by dissociation between ventilation and chemical drive.

Abstract

Suppression of ventilation by tasks such as talking may produce breathlessness in normal individuals under conditions when a strong respiratory drive exists, e.g., during exercise, and in patients with severe lung disease. To investigate the nature of breathlessness produced by a dissociation between ventilation and chemical drive, we studied ten naive… (More)
