Is it important to inhale completely for each trial?

It is very important to completely fill up the lungs (without forcing it!). This gives you the maximum supply of oxygen which can be slowly exchanged to carbon dioxide. The score might be higher if you do not inhale completely, but the trial will also be less effective! If you not not inhale completely, more CO2 can be stored in the lungs, hence the better score. But the effect on the respiratory center is also less... It is really not about how long can you hold your breath, but to change the setting of the respiratory center.
