Lung ventilation: quickly restored to health

Dear Sir or Madam,

When breathing is limited and everyday life can only be managed with obstacles, therapeutic help is needed. Especially when chronic bronchitis has developed into COPD within two years. In such cases, patients are dependent on ventilators. In our interview you will learn how lung monitoring can help to adjust the settings of the ventilator individually and protectively.

A pleasant and successful week wishes
