Abstract

In summary, there are more unresolved questions than absolute facts related to training and respiratory muscle function. A wealth of information remains to be gained if systematic scientific analysis is applied to answer the questions I have addressed in this review. It is rewarding to see that widespread interest in applied respiratory physiology has begun to produce results that may benefit the large number of patients suffering from disabling respiratory diseases and for whom no other viable therapeutic options exist. There is every reason to believe that all of us involved in direct patient care may, in the future, be able to apply relatively simple programs to enhance quality of life.
