A Pilot Survey Study of Adherence to Care Considerations for Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy

Conclusion This study showed adherence to many of the assessments and interventions suggested in the Care Considerations. The areas showing less consistency could be classified as derived from expert opinion with little supporting data. Improvement in the implementation of all aspects of recommended care requires continued study into the health impact of the proposed recommendations and continued advocacy for coverage by agencies.

DISCUSSION:  In nearly 60 % of obstructive apnea events we found snoring during apnea-terminating hyperpnoea. LEOSound is a good diagnostic tool to monitor snoring. It is necessary to clarify why only 60 % of all obstructive events/hyperpnoea develop snoring. From a pathophysiological point of view opening of collapsed upper airway should lead in a very high percentage to turbulences in airstream and committed snoring.
