  • Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy

    In this context, the most frequent respiratory complication is nocturnal and daytime hypoventilation related to respiratory muscle weakness.[] Muscle weakness Other names Myasthenia Specialty Neurology Muscle weakness is a lack of muscle strength.[] Patients become wheelchair bound and develop respiratory muscle weakness.[]

  • Becker Muscular Dystrophy

    Our cases became unable to walk in their teens, and were introduced to mechanical ventilation due to respiratory muscle weakness in their twenties and thirties.[] […] changes in the structure of the muscle cells Tests that stain the muscle sample can be used to visualize any muscle proteins present Electromyogram (EMG): Another diagnostic[] Later symptoms Muscle weakness: Affects the proximal muscles of the limbs mainly.[]

  • Polymyositis

    Dysphagia and neck flexor weakness can develop along with respiratory muscle weakness as the disease progresses.[] An electromyogram showed abnormal nerve conduction with evidence of active denervation of most of the muscles tested.[] Some cases of polymyositis have manifestations of muscle weakness in the orbital muscles. Rare cases also have weaknesses in facial and bulbar muscles.[]

  • Dermatomyositis

    , dysphonia, dysphagia Less common: respiratory muscle weakness, visual changes, abdominal pain Systemic complications/association: Cardiomyopathy Cardiac conduction defects[] (EMG) which can demonstrate abnormal electrical activity in muscles and help distinguish weakness due to muscle disease from weakness due to nerve problems A nerve conduction[] Symptoms may include: Muscle weakness, stiffness, or soreness Problems swallowing Purple color to the upper eyelids Purple-red skin rash Shortness of breath The muscle weakness[]

  • Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis

    Respiratory muscle weakness and failure is a common complication late in the course of disease.[] weakness.[] Weekly data downloads showed that disease progression was associated with increased respiratory muscle weakness, decreased spontaneous breathing, and increased use of non-invasive[]

  • Spinal Muscular Atrophy Type 1

    They have extremely weak muscle tone (hypotonia) at birth. Their respiratory muscles are very weak and they often do not survive past infancy due to respiratory failure.[] An EMG can detect abnormal electrical muscle activity due to diseases and neuromuscular conditions.[] AIM: This study described end-of-life care for children affected by spinal muscular atrophy type 1 (SMA1), which is characterised by progressive muscle weakness and develops[]

  • Myotonic Dystrophy

    Children with congenital-onset DM1, once they survive the crucial neonatal period of respiratory muscle weakness with the help of assisted ventilation, usually show improvements[] On neurological examination the patient was presented with muscle weakness, muscle atrophy (in face and sternocleidomastoid muscles), features of myotonia and apocamnosis[] Congenital myotonic dystrophy is a severe form of this disorder, characterized by neonatal muscle hypotonia, feeding difficulties, respiratory muscle weakness, and an increased[]
