Physiological Correlates of Endurance Time Variability during Constant-Workrate Cycling Exercise in Patients with COPD

Abstract

RATIONALE The endurance time (T(end)) during constant-workrate cycling exercise (CET) is highly variable in COPD. We investigated pulmonary and physiological variables that may contribute to these variations in T(end). METHODS Ninety-two patients with COPD completed a CET performed at 80% of peak workrate capacity (W(peak)). Patients were divided into… (More)
