    Measuring maximal sniff pressures is an easy way of assessing inspiratory muscle strength. During a static manoeuvre, the pattern of inspiratory muscle recruitment during a sniff can vary from one individual to another. We therefore assessed how voluntarily changing muscle recruitment would...

    Direct chest-wall percussion can reduce breathlessness in Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease and respiratory function may be improved, in health and disease, by respiratory muscle training (RMT). We tested whether high-frequency airway oscillation (HFAO), a novel form of airflow oscillation...

    Diaphragmatic weakness is reported as a common feature of the shrinking lung syndrome of systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). However, in chronic stable SLE it has been shown that, despite poor performance of voluntary tests of diaphragm strength, twitch pressures obtained by stimulating the...

    Lung cancer is conceptualized as a malignant aggression to the respiratory epithelium, and the disease that kills more in the world, ranking among the top three with highest incidence. The study aimed to analyze the effect of aquatic therapy in patients undergoing pulmonary resection. It was...

    During the 7.1-MPa hydrogen-helium-oxygen record human dive, we tested the hypothesis that the increased ambient pressure would alter the maximal muscle performance, specifically that breathing dense gas would lead to fatigue of the respiratory muscle. A group of hand muscles (adductor pollicis,...

    During the rowing stroke, the respiratory muscles are responsible for postural control, trunk stabilisation, generation/transmission of propulsive forces and ventilation (Bierstacker et al. in Int J Sports Med 7:73-79, ; Mahler et al. in Med Sci Sports Exerc 23:186-193, ). The challenge of these...

    The article discusses maximal inspiratory pressure (MIP) and maximal expiratory pressure (MEP) as two specific tests to measure the overall respiratory muscle strength and muscle function. It cites the standardization of pulmonary measurement procedures and reference equations implemented by the...
