Respiratory and skeletal muscle function is of interest in many areas of pulmonary and critical care medicine. The capacity of the respiratory muscle pump to respond to the load imposed by disease is the basis of an understanding of ventilatory failure. Over the last four decades, considerable progress has been made in quantifying the capacity of the respiratory muscles, in terms of strength, endurance and fatigue. With the development of magnetic stimulation, it has recently become possible to… CONTINUE READING
