INTRODUCTION Respiratory muscle strength (RMS) is a determinant of vital capacity, and its decline can lead to inadequate ventilation and deficiency in the elimination of secretions from the airways. Studies analyzing RMS in older adults with Parkinson's disease (PD) and Alzheimer's disease (AD) remain scarce, making the analysis of this variable still very(More)
The purpose of this study was to investigate respiratory muscle strength in boys who practice swimming or indoor soccer and in their sedentary counterparts. Seventy-five 7- and 8-year-old boys were included; 25 were swimmers (group 1), 25 played indoor soccer (group 2), and 25 were sedentary (group 3). All subjects underwent anthropometric evaluation.(More)
OBJECTIVES This research aimed to evaluate the repercussions of specific chest physiotherapy procedures in mean airway resistance and in dynamic compliance in preterm infants in mechanical ventilation. METHODS Eighteen preterm infants in conventional mechanical ventilation were submitted to one session of chest physiotherapy (manual chest compression(More)
