Objectives: Upon completion of this course, the participant will be able to:• WHO: Attendees will identify measureable therapeutic targets for airway protection and respiration which are achievable via RMST.
• WHAT: Attendees will be able to discuss RMST in terms of
o the basic principles that underlie inspiratory and expiratory muscle strength training and identify the approach most likely to achieve patient- and diagnosis-specific treatment goals.
o the basic principles of operational variants of RMST: resistive and pressure threshold training and apply this knowledge to develop targeted and functional treatment goals.
• WHY: Attendees will be able to identify and discuss
o the neuromuscular anatomy and physiology of respiration
o how airway protective functions of cough and swallow function within the context of a shared substrates model of airway protection
o how RMST applies basic principles of exercise physiology to strengthen muscles of airway protection and respiration.
• WHEN & HOW: Attendees will be able to select a functional and goal-driven approach to inspiratory and/or expiratory muscle strength training, determine the type of device and manner of therapeutic approach most likely to achieve functional improvement in airway protection and/or respiration, implement targeted training, and measure treatment-related changes in their patients.
