Met with Pulmonologist /thoracic surgeon on diaphragm weakness. They referred me to ALS clinic as the MIP value is very low. Not sure what type of EMG can diagnose this as I have no peripheral muscle issues except respiratory muscle
I've met others who have had respiratory onset with no other clinical weakness. The EMG found widespread denervation. They will still do a clinical exam and maybe other tests to rule out ALS.
Your history is complicated. I'm glad you were referred to neuromuscular specialist. When is your appointment? Did they give you a BiPap?
Hi, my trilogy was recalled and got astral 150 (I have high out of pocket insurance). How much is the circuit and how often do I have to replace it? Also where can I buy it? I see a respiratory therapist who can perform maintenance but he doesn’t know where to buy it.
Yes bipap was given but due to almost no respiratory muscle strength was prescribed vent with active circuit. Thanks for info on the EMG finding. I foolishly only did ncv 6 years ago thinking it was EMG.
