Primary Outcome Measures:
  • manovacuometry [ Time Frame: 6 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Evaluates indirectly respiratory muscle strength.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • spirometry [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Assesses lung function


Other Outcome Measures:
  • quality of life [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Assesses the influence of hypertension on the quality of life of target

  • functional capacity [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    assesses the cardiopulmonary capacity at sub-maximal

  • IPAQ [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    assesses the level of physical activity

Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: threshold
Held inspiratory muscle strengthening for 5 weeks with Threshold, charging 30% of maximal inspiratory pressure, 7 days a week, one supervised and unsupervised 6.
Device: Threshold
The load adjustment was done weekly by a single examiner.

Detailed Description:

It is a respiratory muscle training using the Threshold for 5 weeks, with a load of 30% of maximal inspiratory pressure obtained in manometer for 30 minutes daily. Furthermore, the assessment includes: test 6-minute walk, the quality of life questionnaire, MINICHAL, the IPAQ short version, manometer and spirometry.
