Do Fire-Fighters Develop Specific Ventilatory Responses In Order To Cope With Exercise

“In this study we compared the ventilatory performance whilst wearing self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA) during exercise, of a group of male fire-fighters with a matched group of male civilians.”

Conclusion:

“Data suggests that the respiratory responses of firefighters while wearing SCBA, which are characterised by increases in breathing frequency but not tidal volume, may help to reduce their breathlessness during exercise while wearing SCBA.”
