The threshold pressure used for EMST ranges from 30 percent  to 75 percent  of the trainee's maximum expiratory pressure (PEmax) at total lung capacity.
sec] is related to maximum expiratory pressure which is a representation of respiratory muscle strength.
The following pulmonary function tests were performed for each subject using a Med-Graphics [TM] metabolic cart and Breeze Software [TM]: forced vital capacity (FVC), forced expiratory volume in one second (FEV1), slow vital capacity (SVC), maximum volitional ventilation (MVV), maximum inspiratory pressure (MIP), and maximum expiratory pressure (MEP).
EMST is efficacious for improving maximum expiratory pressure (MEP), cough effectiveness, and swallowing function [3-6].
More specifically, the purpose of this study was to compare forced vital capacity (FVC), forced expiratory volume in one second as a percent of forced vital capacity (FEV1/FVC%), maximum inspiratory pressure (MIP), and maximum expiratory pressure (MEP) values obtained during standing, sitting, forward sitting, supine, and prone positions.
The maximum expiratory pressure (MEP) was measured following end-inspiration by the same procedure.
