原始语种摘要: Abstract(#br)Objective(#br)The purpose of this study was to determine the effects of body position on respiratory muscle strength of young healthy subjects.(#br)Participants(#br)Sixty-three (50 female, mean age 19.7±1.5 years) healthy subjects participated in the study.(#br)Design(#br)Participants were measured in the sitting position, semi-upright sitting position, and in the supine position. The order of the three conditions was randomly determined.(#br)Outcome Measures(#br)Maximal inspiratory and expiratory mouth pressures (PImax, PEmax) and lung function.(#br)Results(#br)A significant effect of body position was observed on PEmax values, controlling for gender. PImax in the sitting position (92.8±20.05...
