Dr. Bach's Books on Neuromuscular Disease

Management of Patients with Neuromuscular Diseases [Order on Amazon]
A great majority of people with neuromuscular diseases like muscular dystrophy, ALS, spinal muscular atrophy, myasthenia gravis and post-poliomyelitis continue to be told that they have "terminal illnesses" and are not offered management options that can spare them of cardiopulmonary morbidity and mortality. This book is unique in offering viable management alternatives that result in a patients prolonged survival and enhanced quality of life.
Philadelphia: Hanley & Belfus 2004, 350 pages, illustrated.
ISBN 1-56053-604-7

Key Features

Noninvasive Mechanical Ventilation [Order on Amazon]
This book describes the use of inspiratory and expiratory muscle aids to prevent the pulmonary complications of lung disease and conditions with muscle weakness. It also describes treatment and rehabilitation interventions specific for patients with these conditions. This book is unique in presenting the use of entirely noninvasive management alternatives to eliminate respiratory morbidity and mortality and avoid the need to resort to tracheostomy for the majority of patients with lung or neuromuscular disease.
Philadelphia: Hanley & Belfus 2002, 600 pages, 200+ illustrations.
ISBN 1-56053-549-0
Guide to the Evaluation and Management of Neuromuscular Disease [Order on Amazon]
Provides information about treatment options that should be available to everyone with neuromuscular disease; how complications can be avoided; and how to converse with health care professionals in a manner that maximizes the chances of successful management.
Philadelphia: Hanley & Belfus 1999, 165 pages
ISBN 1-56053-301-3
Pulmonary Rehabilitation: The Obstructive and Paralytic Conditions [Order on Amazon]
A comprehensive and up-to-date account of the management and rehabilitation of patients with chronic pulmonary syndromes. In addition to chapter's on COPD, asthma, smoking, and other obstructive/intrinsic conditions, the editor includes discussions of the poorly-understood restrictive syndromes seen in rehab settings, as well as the newer techniques in their management.

8. Bach JR. Noninvasive Mechanical Ventilation This book describes the use of inspiratory and expiratory muscle aids to prevent the pulmonary complications of lung disease and conditions with muscle weakness. It also describes treatment and rehabilitation interventions specific for patients with these conditions. This book is unique in presenting the use of entirely noninvasive management alternatives to eliminate respiratory morbidity and mortality and avoid the need to resort to tracheostomy for the majority of patients with lung or neuromuscular disease.

9. Bach JR. Management of Patients with Neuromuscular Diseases A great majority of people with neuromuscular diseases like muscular dystrophy, ALS, spinal muscular atrophy, myasthenia gravis and post-poliomyelitis continue to be told that they have "terminal illnesses" and are not offered management options that can spare them of cardiopulmonary morbidity and mortality. This book is unique in offering viable management alternatives that result in a patients prolonged survival and enhanced quality of life.
