Using an extensive set of both volitional and non-volitional tests of respiratory muscle function and strength it is the aim of this study to - identify disease-specific patterns of re...
The diaphragm forms the upper segment of the core structure. At the same time, the diaphragm muscle acts as the first muscle in the inspiratory function. The aim of this study was to inves...
We are conducting this study to investigate the relation between the respiratory muscle strength and respiratory complications. To understand more about respiratory complications the influ...
Respiratory muscle training (RMT) is considered a therapeutic strategy to improve respiratory muscle strength in mechanically ventilated (MV) patients and facilitates ventilator weaning. R...
Pulmonary hypertension (HP) is a progressive pathological condition presents with vascular changes in the lung. Cardiopulmonary changes in PH are considered the main limiting factor, howev...
In sarcoidosis, muscle involvement is common, but mostly asymptomatic. Currently, little is known about respiratory muscle and diaphragm involvement and function in patients with sarcoidosis. Reduced ...
Muscle weakness is part of the wasting syndrome associated with TB. Cytokines are candidates as the initial causative agents of the metabolic changes in TB. The objective of this study is to assess th...
Pulmonary function tests are routinely used in the diagnosis and follow-up of respiratory diseases. In preschool children assessment and evaluation of lung function has always been challenging but imp...
To examine whether high-intensity home-based respiratory muscle training, ie, with higher loads, delivered more frequently and for longer duration, than previously applied, would increase the strength...
A decrease of swallowing muscle strength causes dysphagia, and a relationship between swallowing muscle strength and appendicular muscle mass has been reported. Moreover, the effect of trunk retention...
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.
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.
Methods and procedures for the diagnosis of diseases of the respiratory tract or its organs. It includes RESPIRATORY FUNCTION TESTS.
Tests involving inhalation of allergens (nebulized or in dust form), nebulized pharmacologically active solutions (e.g., histamine, methacholine), or control solutions, followed by assessment of respiratory function. These tests are used in the diagnosis of asthma.
A respiratory function test that includes the maximal inspiratory pressure and maximal expiratory pressure. It is determined by SPIROMETRY that measures the patient's RESIDUAL VOLUME and TOTAL LUNG CAPACITY and assesses the strength of RESPIRATORY MUSCLES.
