The effect of exercise on the adaptation to an air-purifying respirator type load (dead space + inspiratory resistance) was studied in a group of 13 volunteers with a rapidly incremental exercise protocol. The difference between loaded and unloaded breathing at each exercise level was determined for each subject for a series of parameters describing the ventilatory work to overcome the respirator load pattern of breathing and metabolic work. Linear regression and t tests determined the average… CONTINUE READING
