Abstract:
BACKGROUND: Respiratory muscle weakness is commonly found in neurological patients and respiratory strength can be found out using the Maximum Expiratory Pressure, Maximum Inspiratory Pressure and functional capacity with Six Minute Walk Test.
OBJECTIVE: To find out respiratory muscle training over respiratory muscle strength and functional capacity in hemi paretic patients.
METHODOLOGY: Study design Quasi-Experimental, study type pre and post-test type. Inclusion criteria: both men and women were included, Age 40-65.Exclusion criteria: recent fracture and surgeries. The samples are collected about 14 according to inclusion and exclusion criteria. Samples are analysed with Respiratory Pressure Meter and Six Minute Test.
RESULTS: This results shows respiratory muscle strength and functional capacity has improved in 6-week training protocol.
CONCLUSION: From this study it is concluded that respiratory muscle training is effective for improving the respiratory muscle strength and functional capacity in hemi paretic patients.

Keywords: Respiratory Pressure Meter, Maximum Inspiratory and Expiratory Pressure, Six minute walk test.

I. INTRODUCTION

STROKE is a major cause of disability among adults worldwide and has an incidence of about 252 per 100,000 people. The Prevalence of stroke is about 27% of total population, among which 20% is caused by ischemic, the remainder being caused by haemorrhage. The mortality rate is higher in Indonesia in the world. Risk factors includes older age, hypertension, recurrent stroke attacks, diabetes mellitus, hyperlipidaemia, smoking and atrial fibrillation. High blood pressure is the one of the most important modifiable risk factor1.

Stroke is classified into ischemic and haemorrhagic, ischemic is caused by blockage of blood supply and haemorrhagic by the rupture of blood vessels2.
