Asymptomatic muscle involvement in sarcoidosis is common, but little is known about respiratory muscle involvement. The aim of this study was to investigate any relationships between persistent complaints and/or quality of life and respiratory muscle strength and endurance, respectively. Measurements of maximal inspiratory and expiratory mouth pressures (PI… CONTINUE READING
