The relaxation rate of transdiaphragmatic pressure (Pdi) after voluntary contractions of the diaphragm slows with fatigue. We determined a range of values for the relaxation rate of mouth pressure (Pm) after voluntary contractions of the inspiratory muscles in 27 normal men and women at various lung volumes at rest. Values were similar for both sexes. The relaxation rates were similar at functional residual capacity (FRC) and below FRC, but were greater above FRC (p less than 0.05).
