Abstract:

A clinical investigation was undertaken to determine the effects of commonly-used athletic mouth protectors upon work of breathing during exercise. Results of the investigation indicated a significant increase in work of breathing when intraoral mouth protectors were used. Statistical analyses did not indicate a significant difference between the three types of mouth protectors utilized in this investigation.
