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...
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...
Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is a frequent disease, with increasing prevalence. Pulmonary rehabilitation through general exercise training (GET) is a corner stone of COPD c...
In chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), quality of life and exercise capacity are altered in relationship to dyspnea. Benefits of inspiratory muscle training (IMT) on quality of life, dyspnea...
Previous research has reported that inspiratory muscle weakness is critical to decreased exercise tolerance and exercise tolerance improves with 10 cmH2O pressure support ventilation in patients with ...
Respiratory muscle weakness is common in critically ill patients; the role of targeted inspiratory muscle training (IMT) in ICU rehabilitation strategies remains poorly defined.
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®...
The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of inspiratory muscle training (IMT) on respiratory muscle strength, exercise capacity, dyspnea, fatigue, quality of life, and daily living activit...
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.
