OBJECTIVES To evaluate respiratory muscle strength (RMS) in a sample composed exclusively of healthy sedentary individuals and to compare with predicted values, to investigate the relationship between maximal inspiratory pressure (MIP) and maximal expiratory pressure (MEP) and age, weight and height, and propose predictive equations of MIP and MEP for this(More)
CONTEXT AND OBJECTIVES Respiratory muscle strength is relevant to the clinical situation of elderly patients, particularly those presenting with respiratory or cardiac diseases. The objectives of this study were to evaluate the respiratory muscle strength of institutionalized elderly women, compare this with predicted values for the Brazilian population and(More)
45 pulmonary embolectomies have been carried out successfully, 10 by Trendelenburg's procedure, 35 with extracorporeal circulation. The latter method gives satisfactory results (34 survivals out of 36 attempts since 1970) and appears to be the procedure of choice. Any pulmonary trauma should be avoided at operation; embolectomy is done by intra-vascular(More)
