Normal values for maximal static inspiratory and expiratory pressures in healthy children.
It may also increase positive end expiratory pressure and end-expiratory volume improving oxygenation [22], with low risk of barotrauma and air trapping.
Campbell T, Ferguson N, McKinlay RGC (1986) The use of a simple administered method of positive expiratory pressure (PEP) in chest physiotherapy after abdominal surgery.
[1] Possible explanation for increased maximum breathing capacity & expiratory pressure could be regular deep inhalation and exhalation for prolonged period leads to strengthening of respiratory muscles.
For the measurement of maximal respiratory pressures, a pressure gauge (MICROMEDICAL RPM brand, Micro Medical Limited, PO Box 6, Rochester, Kent ME1 2AZ UK), with a previous vacuum calibration cmH2O every 7 days, with a range of approximately 300 cmH2O of expiratory pressure and inspiratory pressure was used.
Positive expiratory pressure devices can prolong expiratory time and decrease respiratory rate (van der Schans et al 1994), thereby reducing airway closure (Marini et al 1989) and dynamic hyperinflation, and have been used in the management of lung disease in which airway collapse is a problem.
The most frequently described methods of evaluating upper airway collapsibility are the critical pressure measurement (Pcrit) and the negative expiratory pressure (NEP) technique.
The team found that maximal expiratory pressure, pulmonary function and voluntary cough were all reduced in people with MS.
Respiratory muscle strength will be assessed by measuring maximal inspiratory pressure, maximal expiratory pressure and sniff nasal inspiratory pressures.
The company assisted marine engineer Chris Ball is developing PremiAir, a monitor to replace equipment currently used in Positive Expiratory Pressure treatment - a technique which helps clear users' airways and prevent infections.
Product development company Design Right Solutions (DRS) has assisted marine engineer Chris Ball in developing PremiAir, an innovative monitor which aims to replace the equipment currently used in Positive Expiratory Pressure (PEP) treatment, a technique which helps clear users' airways and prevent infections.
A hybrid of CPAP/PEEP therapy is BiPAP, a patient triggered, pressure targeted and flow or time cycled form of ventilation, using an inspiratory pressure higher than the expiratory pressure.
