Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
The amount of force generated by MUSCLE CONTRACTION. Muscle strength can be measured during isometric, isotonic, or isokinetic contraction, either manually or using a device such as a MUSCLE STRENGTH DYNAMOMETER.
Muscle Strength Dynamometer
A device that measures MUSCLE STRENGTH during muscle contraction, such as gripping, pushing, and pulling. It is used to evaluate the health status of muscle in sports medicine or physical therapy.
A method, developed by Dr. Virginia Apgar, to evaluate a newborn's adjustment to extrauterine life. Five items - heart rate, respiratory effort, muscle tone, reflex irritability, and color - are evaluated 60 seconds after birth and again five minutes later on a scale from 0-2, 0 being the lowest, 2 being normal. The five numbers are added for the Apgar score. A score of 0-3 represents severe distress, 4-7 indicates moderate distress, and a score of 7-10 predicts an absence of difficulty in adjusting to extrauterine life.
The maximum volume of air that can be inspired after reaching the end of a normal, quiet expiration. It is the sum of the TIDAL VOLUME and the INSPIRATORY RESERVE VOLUME. Common abbreviation is IC.
Injury Severity Score
An anatomic severity scale based on the Abbreviated Injury Scale (AIS) and developed specifically to score multiple traumatic injuries. It has been used as a predictor of mortality.
A meta-analysis including 32 randomised controlled trials on the effects of inspiratory muscle training (IMT) in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) patients was performed. Overall and subgro...
BACKGROUND: The aim of the study was to compare the effects of conventional posterolateral thoracotomy and muscle-sparing posterolateral thoracotomy on pulmonary and muscle strength. METHODS: From Jan...
We undertook two systematic reviews to determine the levels of respiratory muscle weakness and effects of respiratory muscle training in stroke patients. Two systematic reviews were conducted in June...
We assessed the effect of inspiratory loaded breathing (ILB) on respiratory muscle strength and investigated the extent to which respiratory muscle fatigue is associated with chest wall volume changes...
INTRODUCTION The aim of this pilot study was to assess the effect of pre-operative inspiratory muscle training (IMT) on respiratory variables in patients undergoing major abdominal surgery.PATIENTS AN...
The purpose of this study is to determine whether inspiratory muscle training could improve and/or prevent the deterioration of inspiratory muscle strength, clinical cardiopulmonary outcom...
The purpose of this study is to determine if inspiratory muscle strength training will increase the proportion of ventilator dependent patients weaned versus Sham treated patients.
The trial intends to investigate, whether inspiratory muscle training in hypercapnic patients improves inspiratory muscle strength, inspiratory muscle endurance and endurance to walk withi...
The purpose of this study is to assess the effect of post-operative inspiratory muscle training on muscle strength and endurance in patients with obesity submitted to gastroplasty.
Prolong mechanical ventilation cause to respiratory muscle weakness and high risk to weaning failure,the investigators hypothesize that 1. Specific inspiratory muscle training (SIMT) us...
