About The Book

Respiratory Muscle Strength Training is a clinical guide, intended to provide clinicians with the background information they need to understand respiratory muscle strength training (RMST). With a variety of case studies provided by well-known authors and clinicians, this text acts as a guidebook to the RMST protocol and provides practical information for use in the field of healthcare.

In addition to real-world case studies, Respiratory Muscle Strength Training includes a chapter devoted to Frequently Asked Questions, a representative sample of the devices commonly used for respiratory training, and instructions for using them in patient care.

About The Authors

Christine Sapienza, PhD, CCC-SLP, serves as Provost of Jacksonville University. Previously, Dr. Sapienza was a longstanding tenured professor and chair of the Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders at the University of Florida, as well as a research career scientist at the Brain Rehabilitation Research Center at the Malcom Randall Veterans Administration Hospital. As a principal investigator of National Institutes of Health grants, VA Research Rehabilitation Research and Development Awards, and a M.J. Fox Foundation grant, Dr. Sapienza has provided extensive mentoring to 16 doctoral students, all of whom have contributed back to academics and clinical service. She has built a strong national and international reputation for expertise in the design and implementation of larger scale randomized clinical trials examining treatments as well as the careful reporting of peer-reviewed outcomes from these studies. Dr. Sapienza methodically disseminates this information to the scientific community at large in the form of invited presentations, workshops, and clinical teaching platforms. Through writing, she works to integrate research findings in journal articles, textbooks, and clinical manuals. As a frequent contributor to patient support groups she aspires to assist patients and caregivers as they navigate available treatments and emerging science.
