Dynamic Respiratory Muscle Function in Late-Onset Pompe Disease
The purpose of this research study is to learn about the relationships between strength and endurance of the respiratory muscles and the movements generated during breathing. This study will compare respiratory muscle strength and endurance of Pompe patients to those of healthy controls.
The goal of this study is to learn as much as possible about the movement patterns of the respiratory muscles in Pompe disease. Any new information we learn may be used to develop better care for other people with these conditions in the future.
If you agree to participate in this study, the following tests will be completed over a two-day period:
- Respiratory pressure tests
- Breathing tests
- Magnetic Resonance Imaging and Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy (MRI and MRS)
