Part One provides readers with access to the theoretical building blocks that support practice. It explores the evidence base for Respiratory Muscle Training (RMT) as well as the different methods of training respiratory muscles and their respective efficacy. Part Two guides the reader through the practical implementation of the most widely validated form of RMT, namely Inspiratory Muscle Training (IMT).

Internationally-acclaimed leading expert Professor Alison McConnell provides an evidence-based resource that is built upon scientific knowledge, as well as, clinical experience at the cutting-edge of respiratory training in a wide range of settings.

‘Respiratory Muscle Training: Theory and Practice’ is the ideal companion for those using POWERbreathe IMT for respiratory problems as it provides readers with:

  • An introduction to respiratory physiology and exercise physiology, as well as training theory
  • An understanding of how disease affects the respiratory muscles and the mechanics of breathing
  • An insight into the disease-specific, evidence-based benefits of RMT
  • Advice on the application of RMT as a standalone treatment, and as part of a rehabilitation programme
  • Guidance on the application of functional training techniques to RMT
