The aim of the study was to evaluate the function of the respiratory muscles in patients with diffuse interstitial lung diseases (DILD) by measuring the maximal static inspiratory (MIPS) and expiratory (MEPS) pressures and to find out a possible relationship between these pressures and some parameters of the respiratory function of the lung. The battery of functional tests consisted in: lung volumes, flow rates, lung elasticity and arterial partial pressure of oxygen at rest and on exercise… CONTINUE READING
