Patients with chronic neuromuscular disorders often develop respiratory dysfunction related to weakness in the muscles used for breathing. Dr. Michael Shapiro and Dr. Christopher Garrison (Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation) staff a clinic devoted to treating this complex problem.
Therapies offered include:
- Management of chronic respiratory failure with non-invasive ventilatory techniques
- Chronic nocturnal ventilation via tracheostomy
- Advanced airway clearance techniques
- Long term oxygen therapy
