Abstract

The neuromuscular patients may experience the need for respiratory support due to the onset of respiratory failure. Some skills are essential to achieve therapeutic success. In addition to technical knowledge, it is essential to have knowledge relating to individual neuromuscular diseases. The availability of alternative respiratory supports and various interfaces can be a valuable weapon at different moments in the course of the neuromuscular disease. Furthermore, the doctor-patient relationship plays a key role as does taking care of the patient’s psychological sphere.
