• The association between normal lung function and peak oxygen uptake in patients with exercise intolerance and coronary artery disease 

      Rasch-Halvorsen, Øystein; Hassel, Erlend; Brumpton, Ben Michael; Jenssen, Haldor; Spruit, Martijn A.; Langhammer, Arnulf; Steinshamn, Sigurd Loe (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2020)
      In coronary artery disease (CAD), exercise intolerance with reduced oxygen uptake at peak exercise (VO2peak) is assumed to primarily reflect cardiovascular limitation. However, oxygen transport and utilization depends on ...
    • Lung function and peak oxygen uptake in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease phenotypes with and without emphysema 

      Rasch-Halvorsen, Øystein; Steinshamn, Sigurd Loe; Langhammer, Arnulf; Hassel, Erlend; Brumpton, Ben Michael; Jenssen, Haldor; Spruit, Martijn A. (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2021)
      Previous studies of associations of forced expiratory lung volume in one second (FEV1) with peak oxygen uptake (VO2peak) in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) have not taken sex, age and height related variance ...
    • Personalized medicine for patients with COPD: where are we? 

      Franssen, Frits M. E.; Alter, Peter; Bar, Nadav; Benedikter, Birke J.; Iurato, Stella; Maier, Dieter; Maxheim, Michael; Rössler, Fabienne; Spruit, Martijn A.; Vogelmeier, Claus F.; Wouters, Emiel F. M.; Schmeck, Bernd (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2019)
      Chronic airflow limitation is the common denominator of patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). However, it is not possible to predict morbidity and mortality of individual patients based on the degree ...
    • Pulmonary Rehabilitation in Patients with Pulmonary Sarcoidosis: Impact on Exercise Capacity and Fatigue 

      Grongstad, Anita; Spruit, Martijn A.; Oldervoll, Line Merethe; Vøllestad, Nina Køpke; Edvardsen, Anne (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2020)
      Background: There is limited evidence regarding the impact of multidisciplinary pulmonary rehabilitation (PR) on exercise capacity and fatigue in patients with pulmonary sarcoidosis. The aim of this study was to evaluate ...
