  • Lower Blood Pressure with POWERbreathe IMT

    The University of Colorado Boulder is using the POWERbreathe K-Series in their independent research. They are investigating the effects of just 30 breaths of inspiratory muscle strength training (IMST). Specifically, they are looking to see if it could lower...

  • S-Index assessment improves inspiratory muscle performance

    S-Index stands for Strength-Index. It is one of the POWERbreathe K-Series’ test modes. Its purpose is to calculate inspiratory muscle strength based upon peak inspiratory flow. Peak Inspiratory Flow (PIF) We can evaluate improvements in inspiratory muscle strength...

  • Obstructive Sleep Apnea

    'Breathing Training Improves Sleep And Cardiovascular Health In Obstructive Sleep Apnea' “Unfortunately, the gold-standard of treatment for Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA), continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP), has discouraging compliance rates. Here, we...

  • IMT Protocol For Patients With Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (IMTCO study)

    “Inspiratory muscle training (IMT) has been applied during pulmonary rehabilitation in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). However, it remains unclear if the addition of IMT to a general exercise training programme leads to additional...

  • IMT In Mechanical Ventilation: Suitable Protocols And Endpoints, The Key To Clear Results - A Critical Review

    “Forty percent of the overall time spent in the ICU was reported to be devoted to weaning of MV. The major cause of weaning failure is the imbalance between the imposed load on the respiratory system and its capacity to overcome that.” Conclusion: “Inspiratory...
