BACKGROUND The literature emphasizes the need for studies to provide reference values and equations able to predict respiratory muscle strength of Brazilian subjects at different ages and from different regions of Brazil. OBJECTIVES To develop prediction equations for maximal respiratory pressures (MRP) of Brazilian adolescents. METHOD In total, 182 healthy adolescents (98 boys and 84 girls) aged between 12 and 18 years, enrolled in public and private schools in the city of Natal-RN, were… CONTINUE READING
