Clinical Trial Summary

The current study aimed to investigate the effect of inspiratory muscle training (IMT) on pulmonary functions (FEV1and FVC), and respiratory muscle strength in patients with inhalation injury, which may prove to be a promising intervention helping to improve exercise tolerance, relieve dyspnea and suggests an improvement in respiratory muscle function.


Clinical Trial Description

Forty male patients suffering from inhalation injury were been included in this study, Participants' ages ranged from 20-35 years old. Patients were selected from the burn department, Om El-Masreen hospital, and randomly assigned into two equal groups. The exercise group received inspiratory muscle training in addition to routine chest physiotherapy in the form of (deep breathing, coughing, and early ambulation) three times per week for four weeks (group A). The Control group received only routine chest physiotherapy (group B). This study obtained ethical approval by the institutional review board of the Faculty of Physical Therapy - Cairo University, with reference number: P.T.REC/012/003431 ;
