Lung ventilation is a mechanical process in which the respiratory muscles are acting in concert to remove air in and out of the lungs. Any alteration in the performance of the respiratory muscle may reduce the effectiveness of ventilation. Thus, early diagnosis of their weakness is vital for treatment and rehabilitation. Different techniques, which are based on different measurement protocols, can be utilized for evaluation of respiratory muscle strength. Respiratory muscle strength can be… Expand
Imaging of respiratory muscles in neuromuscular disease: A review
TLDR
How these imaging techniques relate with spirometric values and whether these can be used to study the contribution of the different respiratory muscles in patients with neuromuscular disease are discussed. Expand
The impact of breathing pattern and rate on inspiratory muscles activity.
TLDR
Breathing at low respiratory rate RR is recommended for hyper-inflated lung patients in order to improve their gas exchange, therefore, it is recommended to find their most effective combination of RR and TI/Ttot and to use control breathing to practice their breath at optimum combination. Expand
17 – Anatomic and Physiologic Aspects of Neural, Muscular, and Chest Wall Interactions with the Lungs
TLDR
This chapter provides an overview of the neural, muscular, and chest wall contributions to respiration and presents the background information for understanding the disorders of ventilatory control and disorders of the respiratory pump that will be presented in Chapters 18 and 19, respectively. Expand
Evaluation of fatigue of respiratory and lower limb muscles during prolonged aerobic exercise.
TLDR
The study showed a significant rise in the EMG values when a backpack was carried with respect to the no-load condition, which suggests that respiratory muscles should be trained in military recruits who are required to carry loaded backpacks while marching. Expand
Effect of a respiratory muscle training program on lung function, respiratory muscle strength and resting oxygen consumption in sedentary young people
TLDR
The respiratory muscle training protocol implemented for eight weeks using the Threshold IMT system improved strength and FEV1, and there were no significant changes in oxygen consumption. Expand
Neuromuscular Respiratory Failure
TLDR
The physiology and pathology of respiration in the setting of neuromuscular disorders along with objective assessment of respiratory failure are reviewed. Expand
The validity of surface EMG of extra-diaphragmatic muscles in assessing respiratory responses during mechanical ventilation: A systematic review
TLDR
Findings demonstrate that sEMG of extra-diaphragmatic muscle activity is a valid and applicable tool to evaluate mechanical loading/unloading of respiratory muscles and respiratory drive or sensation during MV assistance across wide populations and conditions. Expand
Musculatura respiratória: mitos e segredos
TLDR
In the current issue of the Brazilian Journal of Pulmonology, Caruso et al. present the various methods of respiratory muscle assessment and addressed the increased use of diaphragmatic ultrasound in determining inspiratory muscle weakness. Expand
Surface electromyography in inspiratory muscles in adults and elderly individuals: A systematic review.
TLDR
The most common procedures used for sEMG were identified and methodological studies with objective comparisons were fundamental for improving standardization, given the impossibility of recommendations from this review. Expand
A Study on the Diaphragm and Respiratory Muscle Activity of Chronic Stroke Patients
TLDR
The purpose of this study is to provide basic clinical data on respiratory pattern changes in post stroke patients by measuring the thickness of the diaphragm and the muscle activity of the respiratory muscle during breathing in stroke patients, and there was a positive correlation between the Rectus abdominis and External abdominal oblique muscles.

Integrated approach for in vivo evaluation of respiratory muscles mechanics.
TLDR
Analysis of EMG measurements and respiratory muscles forces revealed that muscle activity increased with increased breathing effort, and inspiratory muscles contributed to inspiration even at relatively low flow rates, while expiratory muscles are recruited at higher flow rates. Expand

  • 2003
TLDR
Impaired respiratory muscle function is the most severe consequence of several newly described syndromes affecting critically ill patients and is necessary for every physician who practices pulmonary medicine or critical care medicine. Expand
The respiratory muscles.
TLDR
It is increasingly believed that respiratory muscle fatigue may play an important part in the pathogenesis of respiratory failure, and part of the value of artificial ventilation may lie in resting the respiratory muscles. Expand
Mechanics of Respiratory Muscles in Single-Lung Transplant Recipients
TLDR
Patients after single-lung transplantation have lower respiratory muscle strength than healthy subjects, but apparently normal electrical activity, which emphasizes the importance of their rehabilitation before and aftersingle-lund transplantation. Expand
Breathing power of respiratory muscles in single-lung transplanted emphysematic patients
TLDR
The total work done during either inspiration or expiration by the external intercostal and external oblique muscles on the side of the transplanted lung were higher compared with that of the native lung side and compared with the control group. Expand
Anatomical model of the human trunk for analysis of respiratory muscles mechanics
TLDR
A realistic two-dimensional model of the human trunk was developed for quantitative analysis of the relative contribution to breathing mechanics of seven groups of respiratory muscles and showed that the diaphragm muscle generates forces, which are of the same order as those generated by other inspiratory muscles, but performed 60-80% of the inspiratory work.

TLDR
The model and the theorem offer the promise that existing data on the configuration of the chest wall during the relaxation maneuver can be used to compute the mechanical advantage of the respiratory muscles. Expand
Muscle kinematics for minimal work of breathing.
TLDR
The hypothesis that, during forceful inspiratory efforts, muscle activation is coordinated so as to expand the chest wall with minimal work is supported. Expand

TLDR
Patients who exhibit tachypnea, marked use of neck inspiratory muscles, and chest-abdomen asynchrony may be developing respiratory muscle fatigue. Expand
