The Neuromuscular service sees babies, infants, children and teenagers with a wide variety of disorders. The disorders range in age of onset and severity and are usually inherited (genetic) conditions but in some cases they are acquired.
At Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH), physiotherapists are an important part of the Neuromuscular team.
The purpose of this guideline is to provide guidance of how to correctly carry out Train of Four (TOF) monitoring on a patient within the ICU environment taking into account nursing considerations and indications/contraindications for use.
A team of scientists led by Professor Francesco Muntoni of the UCL Institute of Child Health has won an EU grant to develop and test a novel drug treatment for boys with Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD).
