New CF Research Could Improve Treatments For Muscle Function

The research paper, Skeletal Muscle Oxidative Capacity in Patients with Cystic Fibrosis, published in Experimental Physiology in March 2015, has concluded that people suffering from Cystic Fibrosis have a lesser ability to uptake and use oxygen in their muscles, which leads to exercise intolerance. This genetic disease affects the organs in people with Cystic Fibrosis

How POWERbreathe could help improve exercise tolerance in people with CF

We recently came across an article that reported on how patients with Cystic Fibrosis (CF) have less exercise capacity than their peers, even though their lungs may be relatively healthy. Studies by clinical exercise physiologist Dr. Ryan Harris (Georgia Prevention Institute) of the Medical College of Georgia at Georgia Regents University have shown that it’s
