Predictive Factors for the Diagnosis of Early Noninvasive Ventilation Equipment

Brief description of study

To compensate for insufficiency of diagnostic tools, the present study propose to look for the predictive factors of an early fitting by noninvasive ventilation.

Detailed Study Description

Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is the most common motor neuron disease. The diagnosis of this diaphragmatic dysfunction in the ALS subject is done all too often on the occasion of a hospitalization for acute respiratory insufficiency, which aggravates then the prognosis of the patients.

The presence of these factors at diagnosis will allow more surveillance to detect early diaphragmatic insufficiency and establish a NIV (Non Invasive Ventilation), the only therapeutic measure definitely improving the quality of life and survival of patients. A clinical score will be established to determine the risk of early Non Invasive Ventilation (NIV) equipment.
