Hospital Hietzing
ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier:
First received: May 2, 2007
Last updated: May 21, 2008
Last verified: May 2008

Hypothesis:benefits of inspiratory muscle strenght training with Respifit S decreases symptoms, disability or handicap of patients affected by COPD. The inspiratory fraction (inspiratory capacity IC/ total lung capacity TLC)may be functionally more representative than other traditional indices.
