Oxygen Uptake, Ventilation, and Symptoms During Low-Frequency Versus High-Frequency NMES in COPD: A Pilot Study


Transcutaneous neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES) involves the application of an electrical current through electrodes placed on the skin over the targeted muscles. During high-frequency NMES (HF-NMES), oxygen uptake, minute ventilation, and the degree of symptom perception (dyspnea and fatigue) have been shown to be acceptable in chronic… (More)
