How many maneuvers are required to measure maximal inspiratory pressure accurately.
Next, the subjects performed maximal inspiratory pressure ([P.sub.Imax]) measurements using the technique of Black and Hyatt (Black and Hyatt, 1969) and then a cycle ergometer (ER 900, Jeager, Germany) and rested for 3 min.
For the measurement of maximal inspiratory pressure (MIP) and TIE index we used a prototype of a digital vacuometer called MagnaTIE (Magnamed, Sao Paulo, SP, Brazil), with a scale of 300 cm[H.sub.2]O and an increment of 0.1 cm[H.sub.2]O and a time interval of 100 ms for each pressure.

Effect of Manual Therapy, Motor Control Exercise, and Inspiratory Muscle Training on Maximum Inspiratory Pressure and Postural Measures in Moderate Smokers: A Randomized Controlled Trial.
We felt slight resistance during insertion of the tube, but an audible leak around the tube with an inspiratory pressure of 20 cm[H.sub.2]O was heard when the cuff was deflated.
The peak inspiratory pressure ranged as 14-24 cm H2O.
For example, they state that a specific warm-up protocol for the inspiratory muscles with intensity of 40% maximal inspiratory pressure (MIP) increases exercise tolerance during the intermittent exhaustive race (12) and, similarly, Wilson et al.
Pressure-controlled ventilation (PCV) has inspiratory pressure and respiratory frequency as constant parameters, while the tidal volume achieved depends on lung compliance and resistance.
Propofol was administered to achieve and maintain a Ramsay score of 4, and the inspiratory pressure support was titrated to obtain a tidal volume (VT) of 6–8 ml/kg.
