Gastroplasties, like other major abdominal surgeries, induce mechanical changes in the lungs and decreases of the respiratory muscle strength in the post-operative periods. Depending on the occurrence of pre-existing disturbs, obese patients may exhibit severe declines of respiratory function after these surgeries.
Post-operative respiratory physiotherapy is a valuable intervention, involving a set of techniques aimed to expand pulmonary volumes and to improve arterial oxygenation, leading to decreases on the development of atelectasis and pneumonias. It induces faster recovery of respiratory function and reduction of lung complications, what may be particularly important in high-risk patients like over-weighted subjects.
There are scanty data about the role of respiratory muscle training in the post-operative period. This is particularly true regarding inspiratory muscle training of obese patients submitted to gastroplasties.

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...
Respiratory muscle weakness is common in critically ill patients; the role of targeted inspiratory muscle training (IMT) in ICU rehabilitation strategies remains poorly defined.
Respiratory muscle dysfunction has been associated with failure to wean from mechanical ventilation. It has therefore been hypothesised that these patients might benefit from inspiratory muscle traini...

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.
A condition of having excess fat in the abdomen. Abdominal obesity is typically defined as waist circumferences of 40 inches or more in men and 35 inches or more in women. Abdominal obesity raises the risk of developing disorders, such as diabetes, hypertension and METABOLIC SYNDROME X.
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.
