IMT May Reduce Sympathetic Activity Through Respiratory Muscle Metaboreflex attenuation : A Part from The Book Chapter : Current Insights of Inspiratory Muscle Training on the Cardiovascular System: An Update of the Systematic Review with Meta-Analysis

muscle metaboreflex attenuation

More recently, IMT has been evaluated as an adjunct therapy to improve autonomic modulation due to the recognized respiratory effects. According to several studies, IMT may reduce sympathetic activity through respiratory muscle metaboreflex attenuation, improving functional capacity and physical performance. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to systematically review the effects of the IMT on global cardiovascular function through autonomic function modulation of heart rate variability and arterial blood pressure.
