INTRODUCTION: Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is recognized as a multisystemic inflammatory disease associated with extrapulmonary comorbidities, including respiratory muscle weakness and cardiovascular and cardiac autonomic regulation disorders. We investigated whether alterations in respiratory muscle strength (RMS) would affect cardiac autonomic modulation in COPD patients. METHODS: This study was a cross-sectional study done in ten COPD patients affected by moderate to very severe disease...

BACKGROUND: Sniff nasal inspiratory pressure (SNIP) is a non-invasive measure of inspiratory muscle function often used as an outcome measure in clinical studies. An initial period of familiarisation with the test is recommended to minimise the learning effect. The repeatability of SNIP in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is currently unknown. OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study was to assess the between-session repeatability of SNIP over a 3-week period in moderate-to-severe COPD patients and compare it with that of maximal inspiratory (PI max) and expiratory pressure (PE max)...

BACKGROUND: One of the major pathophysiologies in advanced chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) has been attributed to systemic inflammation. Meta-analysis of the 2005 Cochrane Database concluded the effect of nutritional supplementation alone on stable COPD was insufficient to promote body weight gain or exercise capacity. The aim of this study was to investigate the effectiveness of nutritional supplementation therapy using a nutritional supplement containing whey peptide with low-intensity exercise therapy in stable elderly patients with COPD...

BACKGROUND: Comprehensive exercise training (CET) is an efficient strategy to decrease dyspnea perception in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and may result in significant improvement in ventilatory muscles function. Our aim was to evaluate the effects of general exercise training on dyspnea perception and on respiratory muscles strength in COPD patients. METHODS: Consecutive COPD patients were enrolled to complete a CET programme. The patients underwent a routine that included a global warm up, upper and lower limbs endurance exercise as well as stretching and relaxation...

BACKGROUND: Weight loss and skeletal muscle wasting are common in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and can influence the course and the prognosis of COPD. Hypophosphatemia is a pathologic status often characterized by muscle weakness and is a frequent laboratory finding in these patients. OBJECTIVE: The aim of the present study was to evaluate the effect of an organic phosphate (fructose 1,6-diphosphate, FDP) administration on respiratory performance in 45 malnourished COPD patients in stable clinical conditions...

AIM OF THE STUDY: The aim of the study was to document the nutritional status and the calorie demands of patients suffering from severe chronic airflow obstruction (BPCO) who were on continuous domiciliary oxygen therapy (OCD) and to correlate this information with the clinical picture, the severity of the respiratory disease and the daily distance walked, this to be measured in a prospective manner. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Fifty clinically stable patients with chronic airflow obstruction on continuous oxygen therapy for 33 months (range 4-106) in whom the following measures were made at home: pulmonary function, maximal static inspiratory and expiratory pressure (PIMAX and PEMAX), strength of hand, grip, the mean distance walked daily (wearing a pedometer for one week), body mass index (IMC), and the body composition by electrical bio-impedence and calorie requirements...

The altered function of respiratory muscle function in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) has been documented by short term studies but not by prospective follow-up. To evaluate the progression of muscle dysfunction and its relation to hyperinflation, air flow obstruction and generalized muscle weakness, we studied seven patients upon admission and 10 to 25 months later. We measured peak inspiratory (PImax) and expiratory (PEmax) pressures in the mouth, peak pleural inspiratory pressure (Pplimax) and peak transdiaphragmatic pressure (Pdimax)...

It has been suggested that pulmonary rehabilitation compined with inspiratory muscle training (IMT) might improve pulmonary function and respiratory muscle strength in elderly patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). To test this hypothesis, inspiratory muscle strength (PImax), expiratory muscle strength (PEmax) and resting pulmonary function were measured in 13 elderly patients with COPD (aged 70.3 +/- 2.7 years). Inspiratory muscle training (IMT) was performed for 15 min twice a day, using a pressure threshold device, for a total of 12 weeks...

The functional and histologic picture of steroid-induced myopathy was systematically examined in eight patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and compared with control patients with COPD matched for age, sex, and degree of airflow obstruction. Steroid-induced myopathy was associated with severe peripheral muscle weakness, quadriceps force being 23 +/- 14 versus 71 +/- 23% in control patients with COPD (p < 0.001). In addition, clear ventilatory muscle weakness was present. PImax was 37 +/- 15 versus 67 +/- 24% in control patients (p < 0...

Recently, it was suggested that fatigue of peripheral muscles could contribute to exercise limitation in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). In order to quantify the role of peripheral muscle force, we restudied potential determinants of exercise capacity (6-min walking distance [6 MWD] and maximal oxygen consumption [V02max]) in 41 consecutive COPD patients (FEV1, 43 +/- 19% of predicted, TLCO, 56 +/- 25% of predicted) admitted to our pulmonary rehabilitation program. VO2max (incremental cycle ergometer test), 6 MWD (best of three), lung function (FEV1, FVC, TLC, FRC), diffusing capacity (TLCO), isometric quadriceps force (QF), hand grip force (HF), and maximal inspiratory (PImax) and expiratory (PEmax) pressures were measured...

The role of nutritional status in the prognosis of subjects with severe chronic obstructive pulmonary disease was studied in a cohort of Canadian men and women followed for 3 to 5 yr. A total of 348 subjects who were recruited for a study of negative pressure ventilation were evaluated for lung function and body weight, and a subset who entered hospital for the study (n=184) had baseline measures of diffusing capacity, maximal inspiratory and expiratory mouth pressure (PImax and PEmax), and blood gases. Predictors of survival were analyzed using Cox regression models...

Twenty-one patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) or asthma, admitted to our division because of exacerbation of their conditions and requiring intensified treatment with corticosteroids, underwent pulmonary function tests, tests of respiratory muscle function, measurement of quadricep strength, and a variety of anthropometric and biochemical measurements. All tests were performed the 10th day after admission. As expected, muscle strength and pulmonary function were interrelated. Surprisingly, the average daily dose of steroids taken in the previous 6 mo, which ranged from 1...
