Abstract

Background: Specific breathing exercises are reported to improve quality of life and reduce symptoms; although no significant benefit on lung function or reduction of exacerbation risk is indicated. Additionally, inspiratory muscle training (IMT) aims to increase diaphragm and inspiratory muscle endurance. In this study, IMT has been performed in uncontrolled asthma patients to investigate its effect on respiratory symptoms and pulmonary functions.
