Respiratory Care

WHY IS RESPIRATORY CARE IMPORTANT?

Neuromuscular disorders cause progressive muscle weakness, which can impact the muscles used in breathing and coughing. Weak respiratory muscles can put you at risk for respiratory failure, which is a common cause of death in people with neuromuscular disorders.

Thanks to advances in clinical care and research there are things that you can do to manage the respiratory effects of neuromuscular disorders.
