There are conflicting reports on the reproducibility of the visual analogue scale (VAS) and the modified Borg scale for the estimation of breathlessness during exercise. In an attempt to clarify the situation, two groups of healthy subjects undertook a progressive exercise test either daily (Group A) or weekly (Group B) on 10 separate occasions. Breathlessness was estimated every 1 min using the VAS. After 10 occasions, both Group A (P <0.05) and Group B ( P <0.01) showed a significant increase… CONTINUE READING
