1. The mechanical work of breathing was measured from simultaneous records of endoesophageal pressure and tidal volume on three normal young subjects exercising on a bicycle-ergometer. The subjects were allowed to increase their ventilation with respiratory rate either spontaneous or regulated by a metronome (f ranging from 20 to 60 cycles per min). 2. At spontaneous respiratory rates the mechanical work of breathing ( $$\dot W$$ ) was found to increase with increasing ventilation ( $$\dot V… CONTINUE READING
