The trial included only normocapnic
patients and did not compare EMST with other forms of training, which the authors considered the study limitation .
7 kg, 4 females and 6 males) in the RMET group performed their usual training sessions (TS) and received RMET (in the form of normocapnic
hyperpnea); and ten swimmers (16.

All the patients were classified as cryptogenic, except a 49-year-old woman who presented with normocapnic
respiratory failure and acute renal failure.
In the most extensive evaluation of changes in respiratory function during sleep in COPD, Ballard et al (46) studied 5 normocapnic
patients with severe, stable COPD using a horizontal body box.
Fourth, there is heterogeneity in the method of IMT examined in previous reviews: normocapnic
hyperpnea, threshold loading, and resistive loading.
Patients with acute spinal cord injury benefit from normocapnic
All birds in both groups were normocapnic
for the first 35 minutes of sevoflurane anesthesia but exhibited mild hypercapnia (Et[CO.
21] They declared that their measurements of arteriojugular differences of oxygen and glucose (global cerebral extraction) and lactate (global cerebral production) under normocapnic
conditions were representative of cerebral metabolism.
Although it has been effective in improving oxygenation and correcting hypercapnia in patients with obesity hypoventilation syndrome, it has not proved to be clinically useful in the treatment of normocapnic
Ventilatory and cerebrovascular responses in normocapnic
and hypercapnic COPD patients.
The exact mechanism resulting in alveolar hypoventilation in COPD patients is not uniformly accepted and this could be due to the type of measurements used, the stage of sleep (REM vs NREM), and whether the studies were performed in normocapnic
or hypercapnic COPD patients.
