The effects of six weeks of threshold pressure inspiratory muscle training (IMT) on inspiratory muscle performance, breathing pattern and exercise performance were studied in eight patients with severe airflow obstruction. The results indicated that IMT improved inspiratory muscle performance but did not affect exercise performance or breathing pattern during maximal exercise.
