Abstract: The outlook for children with respiratory complications of neuromuscular disease has improved significantly in the past 15 years. This has been the result of many advances in clinical care, including improved monitoring of lung function and hypoventilation during sleep; coordinated respiratory care by experienced physicians with access to specialized respiratory services, especially physiotherapy; and, most importantly, the widespread introduction of noninvasive ventilation.
