The sensation of respiratory muscle force was compared in seven normal subjects before and after inspiratory muscle strength training. Subjects performed 20 sustained maximal inspiratory maneuvers daily for 6-18 wk. Maximal inspiratory pressures (MIP) increased from 124 +/- 10 to 187 +/- 9 (SE) cmH2O (P less than 0.005). Exponents of the power function relationships between mouth pressure (Pm) and the intensity of the sensation of force, corrected for inspiratory duration, during magnitude… CONTINUE READING
