Maximal respiratory pressures at the mouth (PEmax and PImax) have been measured in 370 normal caucasian children and adults. Age, height, and weight were recorded for all subjects and incorporated in a stepwise multiple regression analysis to determine prediction equations for the maximal respiratory pressures in the children and adults for both sexes. In men PImax and PEmax were significantly correlated only with age (p less than 0.001 and less than 0.035 respectively), whereas in women they… CONTINUE READING
