Spinally transected rats developed urinary bladder hyper-reflexia after 3 weeks, indicated by the presence of uninhibited contractions, increased resting pressure, increased threshold pressure and increased maximum voiding pressure.
The use of a threshold device to induce intraluminal airway pressure splinting has the potential advantage of generating an intraluminal pressure that is a function of the device, which means that intraluminal pressure is maintained at the set threshold pressure throughout the expiratory cycle, generating higher airway expiratory pressures, reducing airway collapse and DH, and thus possibly reducing dyspnea.
It is interesting to note that only 9% windows have strength less than the threshold pressure ([P.
