Dynamic hyperinflation and tolerance to interval exercise in patients with advanced COPD.

Abstract

Dynamic hyperinflation (DH) contributes importantly to the limitation of constant-load exercise (CLE) in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). However, its role in the limitation of interval exercise (IE) remains to be explored. The change (Delta) in inspiratory capacity (IC) was measured to reflect changes in DH in 27 COPD patients… (More)
