Effects of different respiratory muscle training regimes on fatigue-related variables during volitional hyperpnoea


Verges, S; Renggli, A S; Notter, D A; Spengler, C M (2009). Effects of different respiratory muscle training regimes on fatigue-related variables during volitional hyperpnoea. Respiratory Physiology & Neurobiology, 169(3):282-290.

Abstract

We compared the effects of the most commonly used respiratory muscle (RM) training regimes: RM endurance training (RMET; normocapnic hyperpnoea) and inspiratory resistive training (IMT), on RM performance. Twenty-six healthy men were randomized into 3 groups performing 4 weeks of RMET, IMT or sham-training. Lung function, RM strength and endurance were tested before and after training. RM fatigue during intermittent hyperpnoea was assessed by twitch oesophageal (P(oes,tw)) and gastric pressures with cervical and thoracic magnetic stimulation. Respiratory sensations (visual analogue scale, 0-10) and blood lactate concentrations ([La]) were assessed during hyperpnoea. RMET increased maximal voluntary ventilation while IMT increased maximal inspiratory pressure. Both RMET and IMT increased vital capacity and RM endurance, but only RMET improved the development of inspiratory muscle fatigue (from -31% to -21% P(oes,tw)), perception of respiratory exertion (4.2+/-0.1 to 2.3+/-2.3 points) and [La] (1.8+/-0.4 to 1.3+/-0.3mmoll(-1)) during hyperpnoea. Whether these specific RMET-induced adaptations observed during hyperpnoea would translate into greater improvements in exercise performance compared to IMT remains to be investigated.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
