The inspiratory capacity (IC) maneuver is increasingly used to monitor exercise-induced dynamic hyperinflation in patients with COPD. However, the reliability of this method in patients with COPD exercising to symptom limitation has not been systematically studied and presented. The purpose of the present study was therefore to evaluate the reliability of the IC maneuver in assessing changes in end-expiratory lung volume (EELV) by assessing the pressure developed during IC maneuvers, in… CONTINUE READING
