The purpose

Inspiratory muscle training(IMT)was an rehabilitation therapy for stable patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease(COPD). However, its therapeutic effect remains undefined due to unclear of diaphragmatic mobilization during IMT. Diaphragmatic mobilization represented by transdiaphragmatic pressure(Pdi)and neural respiratory drive expressed as corrective root-mean-square(RMS) of diaphragmatic electromyogram(EMGdi) provide vital information to select the proper IMT device and loads in COPD, therefore make curative effect of IMT clarity. Pdi and RMS of diaphragmatic electromyogram (RMSdi%) was respectively measured and compared during inspiratory resistive training and threshold load training in stable patients of COPD.
