More appropriate respiratory techniques, as evidenced, to reach peak cough flow values within normal ranges in preschool and adolescent patients with neuromuscular diseases. J. health med. sci., 5(3):167-173, 2019.

ABSTRACT: Neuromuscular diseases correspond to degenerative and progressive damage of the muscle fibers, where the main complication is given to a pulmonary ventilation level. To date, there is little evidence to account which are techniques to achieve peak cough flow values for patients with neuromuscular diseases. Therefore, the aim of this revisión was to identify the most appropriate respiratory techniques, as evidenced, to reach an appropriate coughing mechanism that allows to maintain a clear airway in preschool and adolescents between 4 and 17 years of age, with neuromuscular diseases as in Duchenne muscular dystrophy, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis and spinal muscular atrophy. The peak cough flow values were observed through the application of different cough support techniques. These techniques resulted in a rise of peak cough flow, forced vital capacity and peak expiratory flow.

KEY WORDS: preschool, adolescents, neuromuscular diseases, peak cough flow, respiratory management.
