Dyspnoea is a common symptom of advanced cancer patients, and impacts upon physical, social and psychological wellbeing. Currently opioids are recommended for those suffering with chronic dyspnoea, despite an association with longer term health issues. Inspiratory muscle training (IMT) promotes chronic adaptations within the inspiratory musculature and has consistently been shown to reduce dyspnoea and improve lung mechanics, functional exercise capacity and quality of life in a variety of clinical populations, however this has yet to be tested in patients with cancer.
