The European Home Mechanical Ventilation Registry (EHMVR) will enable a thorough evaluation of HMV by documenting the characteristics of HMV patients and their treatment. This will facilitate a prospective, observational study to identify the primary indications for HMV, describe patterns of HMV use in European countries, and characterize changes in the initiation and utilization of HMV over time. The registry will target all adult individuals who have an indication for HMV. In the EHMVR, patient data from routine clinical care will be documented using an electronic case report form (eCRF). The eCRF will record: patient demographic data; diagnostic information (including primary diagnosis, 6-minute walk time, the presence of depression, and quality of life); blood gases; ventilation treatment (including type of ventilator, modes and settings, interfaces used); follow-up data (including failure rates, side effects, technical issues). An initial Pilot Phase will be launched with the aim to enrol at least 200 patients over a 6-month period to determine the feasibility of the registry. Steering committee members and their institutions will be the main participants in the Pilot Phase. After completion of the Pilot Phase, the registry will be expanded across Europe with the goal of enrolling approximately 10,000 patients over 5 years.

Further study details as provided by ResMed:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Determine the mortality rate and the number of hospital readmissions [ Time Frame: every year (2014 to 2019), up to 5 years ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Determine the effects of home mechanical ventilation on health-related quality of life using the EQ-5D and the Severe Respiratory Insufficiency questionnaires quality of life [ Time Frame: every year (2014 to 2019), up to 5 years ]

Enrollment: 37
Study Start Date: August 2014
Estimated Study Completion Date: August 2019
Estimated Primary Completion Date: January 2019 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Detailed Description:
The data (baseline and follow-up) should be collected as part of routine clinical care. In clinical practice, after HMV initiation, the first control examination (follow-up number one) with nocturnal diagnostics should take place within the first 4-8 weeks. Annual follow-up is required, and it is recommended that subsequent control visits should be performed 1-2 times a year. Each patient will be included for 5 years (total duration of the registry).

Ages Eligible for Study:   Child, Adult, Senior
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
Sampling Method:   Non-Probability Sample
Study Population
The registry will target all adult individuals who have an indication for HMV (including those with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis [ALS], central hypoventilation syndrome [CHS], chronic obstructive pulmonary disease [COPD], kyphoscoliosis, obesity hypoventilation syndrome [OHS], spinal cord injury [SCI], Duchenne muscular dystrophy [DMD], muscular dystrophies [MDs] other than DMD, myopathies and myotonic dystrophy [Steinert's muscular dystrophy; SMD]). All newly-diagnosed patients with chronic respiratory diseases who are eligible for HMV treatment as part of routine care can be included in the registry. Patients who satisfy all the inclusion criteria will be consecutively enrolled into the registry.

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Patients aged ≥18 years with an indication to receive HMV as part of routine clinical care
  • Patient is able to fully understand the study information and is willing to give informed consent
  • Patient, or the patient's legal guardian, signing the consent form

Exclusion Criteria:

- No exclusion criteria have been defined because only data from routine clinical care are needed, plus a separate healthcare questionnaire
