Effects of N-acetylcysteine on respiratory muscle fatigue during heavy exercise.

Abstract

Respiratory muscle fatigue (RMF) occurs during heavy exercise in humans. N-acetylcysteine (NAC) infusion has been shown to reduce RMF, suggesting that oxidative stress is a contributing factor. The purpose of the present study was to determine the effect of an acute oral dose of NAC on RMF during heavy exercise. Subjects (n=8) were given either placebo (PLA… (More)
