    BACKGROUND: Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) is a sex-linked genetic disorder in which progressive impairment of skeletal muscle function eventually leads to severe respiratory failure requiring continuous noninvasive ventilation (NIV) at home. A current focus of debate is whether NIV may slow...

    Background: Respiratory muscle weakness is an important clinical problem. Tests of varying complexity and invasiveness are available to assess respiratory muscle strength. The relative precision of different tests in the detection of weakness is less clear, as is the value of multiple tests....

    Measuring maximal sniff pressures is an easy way of assessing inspiratory muscle strength. During a static manoeuvre, the pattern of inspiratory muscle recruitment during a sniff can vary from one individual to another. We therefore assessed how voluntarily changing muscle recruitment would...
