Paralysis often causes paraplegic patients (paraplegics and tetraplegics) to experience respiratory problems and diseases..
Supporting these patients is a focus of our Outpatient Care Unit. In addition to general care, we dedicate our work in particular to the following plegia-associated subjects:
- Assessing sleep apnoea syndrome is
- Respiratory rehabilitation (invasive and non-invasive)
- Lung function tests
- Blood gas analysis
- Tracheal cannula management and placement
- COPD, asthma and other pulmonary diseases
In all of these areas, we collaborate closely with our consulting pulmonary physician Dr. Hans-Ruedi Frey, FMH Pulmonology as well as our Swiss Weaning Centre.
