4. Breathing Support
Breathing exercises can be helpful for SMA patients to avoid respiratory infections. For severe cases of spinal muscular atrophy, the patient may need assistance with breathing and have to use oxygen through a mask or tube. Suction machines are also available for those who have difficulty swallowing.
SMA patients are advised to have a flu jab each year to prevent respiratory infections.
