Inspiratory muscle training to enhance recovery from mechanical ventilation: a randomised trial

Bissett, Bernie M; Leditschke, I Anne; Neeman, Teresa; Boots, Robert; Paratz, Jennifer


BACKGROUND In patients who have been mechanically ventilated, inspiratory muscles remain weak and fatigable following ventilatory weaning, which may contribute to dyspnoea and limited functional recovery. Inspiratory muscle training may improve inspiratory muscle strength and endurance following weaning, potentially improving dyspnoea and quality of life in this patient group. METHODS We conducted a randomised trial with assessor-blinding and intention-to-treat analysis. Following 48 hours of...[Show more]
