Monique Messaggi-Sartor, Anna Guillen-Solà, Marina Depolo et al

The objective of this randomised clinical trial, published in Neurology (Neurology 10.1212/WNL.0000000000001827) is to assess the effectiveness, feasibility, and safety of short-term inspiratory and expiratory muscle training (IEMT) in subacute stroke patients.

Conclusion:

Inspiratory and Expiratory Muscle Training induces significant improvement in inspiratory and expiratory muscle strength and could potentially offer an additional therapeutic tool aimed to reduce respiratory complications at 6 months in stroke patients.
