Dyspnea, leg effort (Borg 0 to 10 scale), ventilation, and heart rate (VEmax/VEcap; HRmax/HRcap expressed as a percentage of capacity) were measured at maximal exercise (cycle ergometer) in 97 patients with chronic airflow limitation (CAL) (FEV, 46.6 +/- 14.23% of predicted) and compared with 320 matched control subjects. Patients with CAL achieved a maximum power output of 86 +/- 39.5 W (60 +/- 23.2% of predicted) compared with 140 +/- 37.5 W (98 +/- 14.5% of predicted) in controls (p less… CONTINUE READING
