Live Webinar: Diaphragm Dysfunction: Diagnostic Approaches & Rehabilitative Strategies

May 21, 2021 | 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM CT

Presented by: Bryan J. Taylor, PhD

The diaphragm is considered the most important of the respiratory muscles, and its proper function is essential for adequate ventilation and function of the lungs. Unilateral diaphragm paralysis is a known complication of cardiothoracic surgery and neuropathic disease states that affect the phrenic nerve. Diaphragm weakness is also a common consequence of many chronic pulmonary and cardiac diseases, including chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and chronic heart failure. Diaphragm dysfunction is often associated with worse lung function, excessive dyspnea at rest and during exertion, and sleep disturbances. In this webcast, we will detail the etiology and pathophysiology of diaphragm dysfunction and discuss diagnostic approaches and management strategies that may be of interest to cardiopulmonary rehabilitation professionals.   

Learning Objectives:

  1. Identify different etiologies of diaphragm paralysis and/or dysfunction
  2. Compare different diagnostic techniques used to identify diaphragm paralysis and/or dysfunction
  3. Evaluate the potential role for inspiratory muscle training as a rehabilitative strategy in patients with diaphragm paralysis and/or dysfunction
