Abstract: Objective. To evaluate respiratory muscle strength in stroke patients. Method. This is a transversal study with 22 stroke patients, 14 with left hemi paresis and 8 with right hemi paresis, both genders, age between 30 and 87 years old. The evaluation of respiratory muscle strength by the measurement of maximal inspiratory (PImax) and expiratory (PEmax) pressures was assessed with manovacuometry. Results. The strength of respiratory muscles in stroke patients was reduced when compared to predicted values described in the literature (p<0.001). Conclusion. The respiratory muscle strength in stroke patients was lower the predicted values for age.
