Specific inspiratory muscle training is safe in selected patients who are ventilator-dependent: A case series

Bissett, Bernie M; Leditschke, Isabel; Green, Margot


Background: Mechanical ventilation of intensive care patients results in inspiratory muscle weakness. Inspiratory muscle training may be useful, but no studies have specifically described the physiological response to training. Research questions: Is inspiratory muscle training with a threshold device safe in selected ventilator-dependent patients? Does inspiratory muscle strength increase with high-intensity inspiratory muscle training in ventilator-dependent patients? Design: Prospective...[Show more]
