Comparable RCTs of clinical therapeutic effects using respiratory physiology-oriented IMT device in different operation principle in COPD are so far lacking. Therefore the investigators pe...
This study evaluates the effects of a 10-week inspiratory muscle training on the outcomes of respiratory muscle strength, fatigue, activity participation, and respiratory infection rates i...
This study aimed to reveal the role of inspiratory muscles exercise using Inspiratory Muscle Trainer (IMT), which is a form of weight training. The pre- and post study of this experiment w...
Background：Respiratory muscle weakness is observed in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease(COPD) patients and contributes to hypercapnia, dyspnoea, nocturnal oxygen desaturation and red...
This research is intended to begin to explore the impact of inspiratory muscle resistance exercise and/or 1,25(OH)2D3 for improving respiratory muscle strength in cancer patients (subjects...
What is the central question of this study? Maximal sniff nasal inspiratory and reverse sniff nasal expiratory pressures are measured as inspiratory and expiratory muscle strength, respectively. Is th...
The current gold standard assessment of human inspiratory muscle function involves using invasive measures of transdiaphragmatic pressure (P) or crural diaphragm electromyography (oesEMG). Mechanomyog...
Aging is progressive, and its effects on the respiratory system include changes in the composition of the connective tissues of the lung that influence thoracic and lung compliance. The Powerbreathe®...
Preliminary study: comparative effects of lung volume therapy between slow and fast deep-breathing techniques on pulmonary function, respiratory muscle strength, oxidative stress, cytokines, 6-minute walking distance, and quality of life in persons with COPD.
Lung volume therapy with the Voldyne device can improve lung volume and has a nonsignificant benefit on respiratory muscle strength via the slow deep-breathing technique (SDBT); whereas respiratory mu...
Briefly occluding the airway during inspiration produces a short-latency reflex inhibition in human inspiratory muscles. This occlusion reflex seems specific to respiratory muscles; however, it is not...
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.
The smallest difference which can be discriminated between two stimuli or one which is barely above the threshold.
The shortest duration of an electrical stimulus where the threshold amplitude is twice the rheobase - the minimum required for eliciting an ACTION POTENTIAL at any time period. It is a measure of the excitability of nerve or muscle tissue, and is characteristic of types and/or condition of the nerve or muscle cells in the tissue.
The volume of air contained in the lungs at the end of a maximal inspiration. It is the equivalent to each of the following sums: VITAL CAPACITY plus RESIDUAL VOLUME; INSPIRATORY CAPACITY plus FUNCTIONAL RESIDUAL CAPACITY; TIDAL VOLUME plus INSPIRATORY RESERVE VOLUME plus functional residual capacity; or tidal volume plus inspiratory reserve volume plus EXPIRATORY RESERVE VOLUME plus residual volume.
Loss of sensitivity to sounds as a result of auditory stimulation, manifesting as a temporary shift in auditory threshold. The temporary threshold shift, TTS, is expressed in decibels.
