Respiratory Muscle Weakness and Respiratory Failure in Pediatric Neuromuscular Disorders: The Value of Noninvasive Determined Tension-Time Index.

Abstract

Background In pediatric neuromuscular disorders (NMD), respiratory muscle weakness parallels respiratory failure. The objectives of this study are (1) to evaluate respiratory muscle capacity in neuromuscular children and (2) to assess the relationship between vital capacity, respiratory muscle performance, and alveolar ventilation during sleep and… (More)
