The purpose

It has been suggested that patients with Myotonic Dystrophy type 1 have primary altered ventilatory response to chemical stimuli and chronic hypoventilation is related not always to muscle weakness. Also, it is known that Non Invasive Mechanical Ventilation can improve ventilatory response to chemical stimuli, especially to hypercapnia. This study evaluates the effect of Non Invasive Mechanical Ventilation on ventilatory response in patients with Type 1 Myotonic Dystrophy, the ventilatory response to chemical stimuli will be measured before and after mechanical ventilation in patients with myotonic dystrophy type 1.

Provided treatments
