Abstract

Some cardiopulmonary parameters were studied in five patients with obstructive chronic lung disease during neuromuscular relaxation. The usefulness of this therapy is pointed out, especially in patients with lung disease and hyperventilation, neuromuscular relaxation resulting in a decreased ventilatory rate. Since neuromuscular relaxation is likely to determine a condition of good muscular tone by decreasing a high muscular tone in the respiratory tract as well, it brought about a new respiratory pattern at rest, based on a low rate ventilation, in the five patients we examined. The authors point out the usefulness of neuromuscular relaxation as training to delay physical activity and as therapy for subjects with hypocapnia.
