Brief Summary:

This study aims to measure the quality of life of ALS patients by the SRI questionnaire, in two distinct patient groups : Patient requiring initiation of NIV, and patients 24 hours dependent on NIV

This study also seeks to assess the quality of life of the caregivers with the Zarit Burden interview in those two populations


Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis Other: Score completion Not Applicable

Detailed Description:

The course of the study is as follows:

Patient newly ventilated with NIV :

inclusion is done on the day of starting NIV. On the day of inclusion: Clinical examination, completion of the ALS-FRS score, completion of the SRI score.

For the caregiver: Completion of the Zarit Burden Inerview Reassessment of scores (SRI, Zarit-burden, ALS-FRS), at three-month and six-month follow-up

Patient dependent of NIV :

On the day of inclusion: Clinical examination, completion of the ALS-FRS score, completion of the SRI score.

For the caregiver: Completion of the Zarit Burden Inerview Reassessment of scores (SRI, Zarit-burden, ALS-FRS), at three-month follow-up
