Inspiratory Muscle Training Affects Proprioceptive Use and Low Back Pain

“The purpose of this study was to investigate whether inspiratory muscle training (IMT) affects proprioceptive use during postural control in individuals with low back pain.”

Conclusion:

“Inspiratory Muscle Training may facilitate the proprioceptive involvement of the trunk in postural control in individuals with low back pain and thus might be a useful rehabilitation tool for these patients.”

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 Muscle Training on mechanically ventilated patients seems to be a promissory treatment despite controversial results. Randomised Controlled Trials should be carried out to verify the efficacy of the high intensity training during a suitable period of training using electronic kinetic devices in mechanically ventilated patients.”

IMT In Allogeneic Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplantation Recipients: A Randomized Controlled Trial

“Respiratory muscles are known to be weakened and are a cause of reduced exercise capacity in both recipients and candidates of allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (allo-HSCT). Effects of inspiratory muscle training (IMT) in this patient population have not been comprehensively investigated so far. This study planned to investigate the effects of IMT during allo-HSCT on early transplantation-related outcomes.”

Conclusion:

“Inspiratory muscle training is a safe and effective intervention which improves respiratory muscle strength and exercise capacity and decreases depression and dyspnea in allo-HSCT recipients. These positive changes might be further enhanced by prolonging the duration of training or inclusion of more recipients with inspiratory muscle weakness.”

IMT: Onderzoek naar de invloed van ademspiertraining bij slokdarmkanker (IMT: Research into the effects of IMT in oesophageal cancer)

The The University Medical Center Groningen, (UMCG) will conduct a survey on the effect of a training program for the respiratory muscles in the weeks before an esophageal surgery. It is a study of the feasibility and effectiveness of two different types of preoperative inspiratory muscle training in patients with esophageal cancer who undergo surgical removal.

Effects of Inspiratory Muscles Strengthening Among Coronary Patients on the Sleep Apnea Obstructive Syndrome

“If the value of treatment with Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) in symptomatic coronary artery disease patients appears to be established, treatment with CPAP in asymptomatic coronary artery disease patients may be too demanding. Alternative treatments are rare and results are highly variable. Therefore, it would be interesting to suggest other treatment modalities with moderate coronary and/or minimally symptomatic obstructive sleep apnea syndrome.”

“This study aims to assess the relevance of inspiratory muscles strengthening on reducing Apnea Hypopnea Index in coronary artery disease patients with moderate obstructive sleep apnea (AHI between 15 and 30).

Effects of Inspiratory Muscle Training on Respiratory Muscle Mechanics and Haemodynamics in Healthy Adults

“The effects of inspiratory muscle training (IMT) remain controversial. Many studies have examined the effect IMT has on exercise performance, but any changes to the body that come from IMT have yet to be looked at.

This study will look at how someone breathes can change after IMT. Understanding how IMT changes the body can help us use IMT in different treatments.”
