The global peripheral chemoreflex drive (GPCD) in patients with systemic sclerosis (SSc): a rebreathing and exercise study.

 

The GPCD was diminished in dcSSc patients, suggesting an altered control of breathing and its assessment may help the clinician to better understand reported exercise intolerance and exertional dyspnea in dcSSc patients. PubMed, QJM. 2014 Jul 13. (Also see: Lung Involvement)
