Objective: To compare the effectiveness of inspiratory muscle training (IMT) and incentive spirometer on ventilatory functions in post-menopausal asthmatic women. Participants and methods: A total of forty postmenopausal women suffering from asthma, their ages ranged from 50 to 60 years old, and their body mass index of the patient don't exceed 30kg/m2. They were recruited from patient chest clinic in Kasr -El- Ainy Teaching Hospital, Cairo University, Egypt.
They signed a consent form, confidentiality was assured. They assigned into two groups (A) who received inspiratory muscle training in the form of: Inspiratory threshold muscle trainer in addition to traditional chest physical therapy intervention (Deep breath, cough training) while patients in group (B): received traditional chest physical therapy intervention and incentive spirometer, three sessions per week for six weeks. Patients in both groups were assessed before treatment (pre-training) then after treatment (post-training) (after 6 weeks) to measure lung functions using electronic spirometer. The training program was carried in the duration from January 2019 to July 2019.

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.
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.
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 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.
