Inspiratory pressure support prolongs exercise induced lactataemia in severe COPD.


BACKGROUND A physiological benefit from pulmonary rehabilitation in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is more probable if exercise is performed above the lactate threshold. This study was undertaken to investigate whether it was possible to extend the lactataemia of exercise using non-invasive inspiratory pressure support (IPS). METHODS Plasma… (More)
