Respiratory muscle training (RMT) is an evidence-based treatment that is being used more frequently in rehabilitation. However, not all professionals providing this therapy feel confident understanding its principles and use. In this course, clinicians will understand the principles of strength training and how they apply to RMT. Clinicians will be able to describe the differences between various types of devices and the existing evidence behind their use.

1. Respiratory System Anatomy and Physiology

Prior to providing respiratory muscle training, it is important to understand the anatomy and physiology of the respiratory system, including the differences between respiration and ventilation. This chapter sets the foundation for understanding principles of strength training and their applications to the respiratory system.

2. Principles of Strength Training

Once the learner can distinguish respiration from ventilation and identify various respiratory muscle groups, it is critical to understand the principles of strength training and how they apply to the respiratory system. This chapter explains the principles of strength training, a crucial component of evidence-based respiratory muscle training.

3. Respiratory Muscle Training

Armed with an understanding of the respiratory system and principles of strength training, the learner will integrate these foundational concepts into a foundation for providing respiratory muscle training (RMT). The learner will understand how principles of strength training apply to RMT, which patients may benefit from RMT, and which commercially available devices are based in evidence for this specialized therapy.
