Respiratory Muscle Strength Training: Evidence and Protocols (On Demand Webinar)
Already an ASHA Learning Pass subscriber?
interventions that provide a calibrated mode for strengthening inspiratory and
expiratory muscles are limited and often non-evidence-based. In this course, speaker Christine Sapienza
discusses the evidence base for respiratory muscle strength training (RMST)
devices and shares the assessment and treatment protocols necessary for valid
implementation of respiratory muscle strength training protocols. The course
will be useful for SLPs working in health care settings treating acute and
chronic conditions that impact the functions of breathing, coughing,
swallowing, and vocalizing that result from skeletal muscle weakness.
You will be able
appropriate indicators for use of RMST in clinical practice
evidence-based literature on outcomes related to improved functions of
breathing, cough, swallow, and voice
outcomes associated with RMST protocols
Hear From the Speaker
"I knew nothing about these devices or training muscles for respiration. This felt like the perfect pace, perfect amount of background information for an introduction of this length. I also REALLY appreciated the step by step walkthrough of how to use the devices."
"Demonstrations were excellent! Slides were perfect. This was so functional, so many take a ways. Really one of the best presentations I have watched in a long time."
