A body plethysmograph adapted to contain the pedals of an electrically braked cycle ergometer was used to measure pulmonary mechanics during steady-state exercise in 12 normal male subjects aged 22-65 yr. During exercise there was a progressive increase in residual volume to 119% of the value at rest (P less than 0.01), but functional residual capacity and total lung capacity did not change. The maximum expiratory flow-volume (MEFV) curves did not change and flow rates during tidal breathing… CONTINUE READING
