A noninvasive method for determining a client's ability to generate respiratory driving pressure is described. This method is off-spring, of simpler form, from a method previously offered in this journal. The key to its simplification is the use of a pressure-indication device that can be constructed from a small collection of items found around the house. The usefulness of this off-spring method is discussed with regard to evaluation and management concerns and its advantages over it parent method are considered.
