      which stated that inspiratory muscle training (IMT) combined with chest physical therapy and early mobilization (EM) had the highest effectiveness in respectively reducing the duration of weaning and mechanical ventilation in patients in the intensive care unit. To obtain these conclusions, the research group conducted a network meta-analysis (NMA).
