    BACKGROUND: The 2005 American Thoracic Society/European Respiratory Society guidelines on spirometry emphasize examination of the inspiratory curve of the flow-volume loop for evidence of intrathoracic or extrathoracic upper airway obstruction. We sought to determine how frequently evaluations...

    The article focuses on the respiratory muscle training (RMI) for patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). It says that RMI focuses on the inspiratory muscle training (IMT) that establishes the muscle function, and the expiratory muscle training (EMT). Moreover, IMT devices can...

    This article provides a critical review of inspiratory muscle training (IMT) in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Although extensive research on IMT has accumulated, its benefits have been debated, primarily because of methodological limitations of studies. Using relevant key words,...
