Abstract
Fatigue of the respiratory muscles is now well documented but still remains a process that cannot be assessed easily. Several methods are available to detect fatigue; they represent windows allowing different viewpoints on the same phenomenon. The definition and determinants of respiratory muscle fatigue and some of the methods used to detect it are reviewed. On the basis of the available evidence provided by each of these methods, the role played by muscle fatigue in acute respiratory failure (ARF) is discussed.
