Monitoring Lung Function at Home in Teens with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy Just Got Easier

December 17, 2018 - Amsterdam, NL – Heart and lung complications are responsible for much of the morbidity and mortality associated with Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD). Although regular monitoring of pulmonary function is recommended in order to detect deterioration, compliance with routine testing, such as hospital-based spirometry, is frequently poor. A new study in the Journal of Neuromuscular Diseases describes the at-home use of a child-compatible, hand-held device that makes monitoring pulmonary function in teens more convenient and provides the data needed for better disease management.
