The consequences of chronic hypoxemia on maximal force and endurance time to sustained 80% of maximal isometric contraction of two skeletal muscles (adductor pollicis and vastus lateralis) and the diaphragm were studied in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Compared to normal subjects, COPD patients have lower values of Fmax for the two skeletal muscle groups and Pmax (diaphragm). Endurance time was also shorter for the diaphragm and adductor pollicis. Chronic hypoxemia… CONTINUE READING
