Five healthy males exercised progressively with small 2-min increments in work load. We measured inspiratory drive (occlusion pressure, P0.1), pulmonary resistance (RL), dynamic pulmonary compliance (Cdyn), transdiaphragmatic pressure (Pdi), and diaphragmatic electromyogram (EMGdi). Minute ventilation (VE), mean inspiratory flow rate (VT/TI), and P0.1 all increased exponentially with increased work load, but P0.1 increased at a faster rate than did VT/TI or VE. Thus effective impedance (P0.1/VT… CONTINUE READING
