Non Invasive mechanical ventilation in Myotonic dystrophy type 1?: hypoventilation versus quality of life prespective


We agree that the comments of Dr. Fiorentino and Dr. Esquinas are important and need to be investigated in the future. Nevertheless, we believe that they over interpreted our results considering that we only analysed the patients’ profile according to the compliance to non-invasive ventilation (NIV), but not the effect of NIV on the respiratory function, and particularly on the central respiratory system response to CO2, or quality of life.
