As we embark into the winter season, it’s imperative that individuals with Duchenne and Becker muscular dystrophy are prepared to manage their pulmonary health and understand when medical intervention is needed.
PPMD’s VP of Clinical Care, Rachel Schrader was recently joined by a panel of experts to discuss how to manage respiratory symptoms at home, when to seek medical care, and what to expect if a hospital or urgent care visit is needed.
Our panel included 3 pulmonologists:
- Daniel Sheehan, PhD, MD (University of Rochester Medical Center)
- Courtney Gushue, DO (Nationwide Children’s Hospital)
- Andrew Sokolow, MD(Vanderbilt University)
