Heart Failure and Heart Disease

A study concluded that Inspiratory Muscle Training (IMT) using an incremental endurance test, successfully increases both inspiratory strength and endurance, alleviates dyspnea and improves functional status in chronic heart failure1.

Another study concluded that in patients with chronic heart failure and inspiratory muscle weakness, Inspiratory Muscle Training (IMT) results in marked improvement in inspiratory muscle strength, as well as improvement in functional capacity, ventilatory response to exercise, recovery oxygen uptake kinetics, and quality of life2.
