Abstract

Introduction: Recent evidences suggest that respiratory muscles training improves the exercise capacity. Aim: To evaluate the efficacy of respiratory muscles training with HY (Spirotiger®) on respiratory parameters and exercise capacity. Materials and Methods: 12 Females: Group A: 6 (age 24 ±0,8) with HY training (20 min/day x 5/weeks) for 1 month; Group B control: 6 (age 23 ±2,6). Respiratory function tests [vital capacity (VC), forced expiratory volume in 1st second (FEV1), maximum voluntary ventilation (MVV), maximum inspiratory pressure (MIP)]; Incremental maximal cycle ergometer test: [watt/min, oxygen consumption (VO2), heart rate (HR), dyspnea scale (Borg)] before (T0 ) and after training (T1 ).
