Non-invasive ventilation usage and adherence in children and adults with Duchenne muscular dystrophy: A multicenter analysis
INTRODUCTION/AIMS: Non-invasive ventilation (NIV) is routinely prescribed to support the respiratory system in Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) patients; however, factors improving NIV usage are unclear. We aimed to identify predictors of NIV adherence in DMD patients.
