The purpose of this trial is to demonstrate that Inspiratory Muscle Training associated with a conventional pulmonary rehabilitation program allows a significant improvement of dyspnea in subjects with severe or very severe COPD than a conventional pulmonary rehabilitation program alone.”
“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).
