• Location: Webinar via Zoom

Sports Medicine Australia is thrilled to be continuing the brand new professional development initiative ‘Queensland Emerging Leader Series’. This series aims to cover a broad range of academic and practical topics surrounding sports medicine while highlighting the next generation of sports medicine professionals and their work, each month will cover a different topic. This series is ideal for students, sports trainers and sports medicine professionals looking to expand their industry knowledge.

Join us on October 25 for part three of the series where we will be joined by Dr Dean Mills as he presents ‘Respiratory limitations to endurance exercise performance in humans – Is the system overbuilt, underbuilt or perfect for exercise?’

During this interactive webinar Dr Mills will discuss respiratory limitations to exercising humans including typical respiratory responses to exercise, flow limitation and dynamic hyperinflation, Exercise induced bronchoconstriction, arterial hypoxemia and laryngeal obstruction, and Respiratory muscle fatigue and the respiratory muscle metaboreflex. There will be an opportunity to have Q&A with Dr Mills during the event

This event is free for SMA Members and $25 for Non-Members.

This event will commence at 6:30pm AEST time (QLD), please ensure you confirm the starting time for your time zone.


Dr Dean Mills is a senior lecturer in exercise physiology and program director of sport and exercise science at the University of Southern Queensland. His doctorate was undertaken in the field of exercise respiratory physiology at Nottingham Trent University, UK and investigated the effects of respiratory muscle work and inspiratory muscle training on cytokines, oxidative stress and diaphragm fatigue in healthy human populations. Subsequent postdoctoral training at the Royal Children’s Hospital in Brisbane investigated novel techniques to measure respiratory function in children with chronic respiratory disease. His current research examines the physiological and biochemical consequences of an increased work of breathing and exercise-induced respiratory muscle fatigue.

Registration is essential.
