Pneumologie-Schweizer Paraplegiker-Zentrum


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.
