This study evaluated the involvement of the diaphragm and sternocleidomastoid muscle (SCM) in reaching load of 40% and 80% of maximal inspiratory pressure (MIP), using surface electromyography (EMG) in healthy subjects. Healthy men and women, in total of 13 individuals, with ages between 20 and 30 years. The threshold was performed for seven minutes with a load of 40% followed by a resting interval of 4 minutes, and then seven minutes with a load of 80%. The electrical signal of the inspiratory… CONTINUE READING
