Rachel McConnell
Introduction: Mechanical Insufflation Exsufflation (M-IE) and Lung Volume Recruitment (LVR) increase cough strength in Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS). Changes in respiratory measures, morbidity, physical function and outcomes; participant’s characteristics prescribed a M-IE and LVR device and their experience with devices are unknown. Finally, LVR adherence is difficult to measure. Aims/Objectives: The primary aim was to measure, respiratory measures, morbidity, physical function and outcome in an Irish ALS cohort.
