Respiration as a Limiting Factor for Working Capacity
Diseases of the cardiorespiratory system often considerably limit the physical work performance. However, to what extent is the respiratory system a limiting factor for exercise tolerance without manifest respiratory disease? What factors should be taken into consideration?
