Peak Cough Flow and Cough Clearance in Patients With Muscular Dystrophy
study id #: NCT02034305
condition: Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy
This study is to determine whether physiologic measures (peak cough flow, measures of respiratory muscle strength including MIP, MEP, SNIP, and spirometry) can predict spontaneous cough clearance (as measured by a nuclear medicine study) in children with neuromuscular disease. It will also determine whether airway clearance is augmented by high frequency chest wall oscillation.
mechanism of action: No pharmaceutical intervention
last updated: February 15, 2019
start date: January 2014
estimated completion: January 2020
size / enrollment: 15
