Peak Cough Flow and Cough Clearance in Patients With Muscular Dystrophy

key information

study id #: NCT02034305

condition: Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy

status: recruiting

purpose:

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
