  • Abstract Respiratory muscle involvement is one of the main prognostic factors in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). Acute respiratory failure is sometimes the first manifestation of the disease, although onset can be more insidious. In the present retrospective study, it was proposed to review the clinical features and to assess the effects of non-invasive ventilation (NIV) on the prognosis of patients with respiratory onset, which was taken to be present when the first symptoms of muscular… CONTINUE READING
