  • Factors that influence muscle fatigability (MF) after exercise in COPD were studied.

  • COPD patients with very severe (VSO) and severe lung obstruction (SO) were compared.

  • VSO patients experience lower MF (less reduction in MVC) compared to SO.

  • Dyspnea is higher in the VSO group at the beginning and end of the exercise.
