This study determined the effect of a high vs low resistive inspiratory muscle interval training protocol on inspiratory muscle strength (PImax), incremental inspiratory threshold loading (Pitl), inspiratory muscle endurance (IE), and 12-minute distance test (12 MD) in severely impaired patients with COPD. We used a double-blind, two-group, repeated-measure design. Group 1 (n = 12) received supervised high resistive loading at approximately 52 percent PImax and group 2 (n = 8) received… CONTINUE READING
