Dr Caroline Jolley, of King's College London, discusses the role of respiratory muscle function in the perception of breathing effort, focusing in particular upon patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). A neurophysiological model of breathlessness is presented in which disordered lung mechanics and diaphragm weakness, lead to an uncoupling of inspiratory pressure generation and ventilation to create a state of "neuromechanical dissociation" and efferent-afferent mismatch. Finally, Dr Jolley consideres whether inspiratory muscle training might ameliorate this mismatch. The lecture was filmed at Brunel University - London in April 2013 as part of a series of lectures on respiratory muscle training in health and disease.
