This study examined the effects of bronchodilator-induced reductions in lung hyperinflation on breathing pattern, ventilation and dyspnoea during exercise in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Quantitative tidal flow/volume loop analysis was used to evaluate abnormalities in dynamic ventilatory mechanics and their manipulation by a bronchodilator. In a randomised double-blind crossover study, 23 patients with COPD (mean +/- SEM forced expiratory volume in one second 42 +/- 3% of the… CONTINUE READING
