Advances in Respiratory Medicine

Routine lung function and respiratory muscle testing are recommended in children with neuromuscular disease (NMD), but these tests are based on non-invasive volitional manoeuvres, such as the measurement of lung volumes and maximal static pressures, that young children may not always be able to perform. The realization of simple natural manoeuvres such as a sniff or a cough, and the measurement of oesophageal and gastric pressures during spontaneous breathing can add valuable information about the strength and endurance of the respiratory muscles in young children. 
 

 Respiratory diseases are one of the major chronic diseases and considered by the World Health Organization (WHO) to cause 60% of mortality worldwide. Significant research is being carried out on the diagnosis, treatment, management and care of patients with lung conditions.
