4) In the present study, we examined the possible relationship between handgrip strength and maximal respiratory pressures (maximum inspiratory pressure [MIP] and maximum expiratory pressure [MEP]) and endurance (maximum voluntary ventilation [MVV]) in patients with FMS.

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.
