We investigated the effects of aging on the elastic properties of lung tissue and the chest wall, simultaneously quantifying the contribution of each component to static inspiratory muscle work in resting and exercising adults. We further evaluated the interaction of aging and habitual physical activity on respiratory mechanics. Static lung volumes and elastic properties of the lung and chest wall (pressure-volume relaxation maneuvers) in 29 chronically sedentary and 29 habitually active… 

Figures and Tables from this paper

The effects of age and sex on mechanical ventilatory constraint and dyspnea during exercise in healthy humans.
TLDR
The results suggest that the combined influences of age and biological sex on mechanical ventilatory constraint during exercise contributes, in part, to the increased perception of dyspnea during exercise in older women.
Resistive and elastic work of breathing in older and younger adults during exercise.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that aging-induced pulmonary alterations result in greater inspiratory elastic and resistive as well as expiratory resistive WOB during exercise, which may have implications for the integrated response during exercise.
Maximal respiratory pressure in healthy 20 to 89 year-old sedentary individuals of central São Paulo State.
TLDR
The results showed that age and anthropometric characteristics influence RMS values, and equations to predict the MIP and MEP values exclusively for healthy, sedentary individuals from 20 to 89 years of age are proposed.
The effects of thoracic load carriage on maximal ambulatory work tolerance and acceptable work durations
TLDR
Thoracic loading significantly reduced exercise tolerance and the breathing reserve, but did not modify peak minute ventilation or the absolute peak aerobic power.
The influence of training status, age, and muscle fiber type on cycling efficiency and endurance performance.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that muscle fiber type does not affect cycling efficiency and was not influenced by the aging process, and only GE at 120 revolutions/min was seen to predict cycling performance.
Breathing strategy in master athletes and untrained elderly subjects according to the incremental protocol.

TLDR
It was concluded that, in untrained subjects, neither incremental exercise test had an impact on respiratory responses during exercise, and breathing strategy seems to be protocol dependent.
The effects of inspiratory muscle strengthening on MIP and quality of life of elderly nursing home patients.
TLDR
It is concluded that inspiratory muscle strengthening led to an increase in MIP that did not improve quality of life among elderly nursing home patients and further studies should be done in this population to validate aquality of life questionnaire specific for the elderly.
Chest Mobilization Techniques for Improving Ventilation and Gas Exchange in Chronic Lung Disease
TLDR
Chest mobilization using breathing, respiratory muscle exercise or function training allows clinical benefit in chronic lung disease, especially COPD with lung hyperinflation or barrel-shaped chest.

Longitudinal effects of aging on lung function at rest and exercise in healthy active fit elderly adults.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that habitual physical activity and high aerobic capacity modify neither the normal deterioration in resting lung function nor the increased levels of ventilatory work during exercise that occur with healthy aging over the sixth and seventh decades of life.
Relationship between respiratory muscle function and age, sex, and other factors.
TLDR
There are sexual and age differences in respiratory muscle strength and pulmonary function and that smoking or physical activity may affect respiratory muscle function.
Respiratory mechanics and breathing pattern during and following maximal exercise.

TLDR
It is concluded that lung elastic recoil is unchanged even at maximal exercise and that, while inspiratory muscles operate within a potentially fatiguing range, the high levels of ventilation observed during maximal exercise are not maintained for a sufficient time to result in mechanical fatigue.
Pulmonary mechanics during exercise in normal males.
TLDR
The results demonstrate the importance of measuring absolute thoracic gas volume and the elastic properties of the lung when comparing pulmonary mechanics at rest and during exercise.
Respiratory sensation during chest wall restriction and dead space loading in exercising men.
TLDR
Severe dyspnea and exercise intolerance were provoked in healthy normal subjects when tidal volume responses were constrained in the face of increased ventilatory drive during exercise.
Static respiratory muscle work during immersion with positive and negative respiratory loading.
Upright immersion imposes a pressure imbalance across the thorax. This study examined the effects of air-delivery pressure on inspiratory muscle work during upright immersion. Eight subjects
Pulmonary function in young and older athletes and untrained men.
TLDR
Longer strenuous endurance training in these older highly trained endurance athletes appears to have altered the decline in pulmonary function and volumes associated with aging.
Respiratory muscle strength in the elderly. Correlates and reference values. Cardiovascular Health Study Research Group.
TLDR
The reference equations derived from this group of healthy 65 to 85-yr-olds may be used by pulmonary function laboratories and respiratory therapists who evaluate the respiratory muscle strength of elderly patients.
Ventilatory muscle training in the elderly.
TLDR
Evaluation of the RPE during both the IET and SST showed that although there was a small decrease in RPE for breathing and leg discomfort, changes between the control and treated groups were similar.
Lung volumes during low-intensity steady-state cycling.
TLDR
It is concluded that TLC does not differ significantly during low-intensity steady-state cycling and that use of IC to estimate changes in EELV is appropriate.
