OBJECTIVE The aim of the present study was to evaluate the effect of pursed-lip breathing (PLB) on cardiac autonomic modulation in individuals with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) while at rest. METHODS Thirty-two individuals were allocated to one of two groups: COPD (n = 17; 67.29 ± 6.87 years of age) and control (n = 15; 63.2 ± 7.96 years of age). The groups were submitted to a two-stage experimental protocol. The first stage consisted of the characterization of the sample and… CONTINUE READING
