    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...

    To our knowledge no data have been reported on the contribution to acute increase in dyspnea by the respiratory muscles in obese nonsmoking subjects. To better focus on this topic, we studied seven obese subjects and an age-matched normal control group, assessing baseline pulmonary function,...
