BACKGROUND Muscle oxygenation correlates with systemic oxygen uptake (V(O₂)) in normal subjects; however, whether this relationship exists in COPD patients remains unclear. The purpose of this study was to investigate the influence of skeletal muscle oxygenation on V(O₂) during exercise in patients with COPD. METHODS Eight subjects performed an incremental cycle ergometer exercise test. We measured ventilation and pulmonary gas exchange with a metabolic measurement system. We also… CONTINUE READING
