The slopes of the data are calculated as the change in minute ventilation over the change in partial pressure of carbon dioxide ([DELTA]VE/[DELTA]PC[O.
No significant differences were seen between groups for tidal volume, minute ventilation or peak inspiratory pressure (Table 3).
Minute ventilation during submaximal effort did not demonstrate a similar pattern to V[O.

T], the minute ventilation (Ve) can be determined, and in this instance, it is 6 to 6.
Minute ventilation of cyclists, car and bus passengers: an experimental study.
In a group of patients with nocturnal desaturation, minute ventilation fell by around 20 per cent from wakefulness to NREM, with further falls during REM sleep of almost 40 per cent, irrespective of the underlying primary disease process (2).
Data from this system continually measured heart rate, minute ventilation (VE), oxygen uptake (VO2) and carbon dioxide production (VCO2).
The resultant consequence of all these physiological responses is a decrease in minute ventilation and hypoventilation.
Rapid changes in these parameters will, therefore, potentially alter the minute ventilation and work requirements for the patient.
The technique involves having the patient learn exercises that reduce both the frequency and the depth of breathing, to induce hypocapnia and reduce minute ventilation.
