The research concerns prevention and treatment of lung function impairment, mainly in connection with thoracic surgery.
About this group
Effects of physiotherapy, breathing exercises, mobilization and physical activity are studied in different patient groups with impaired lung function. Interventions for patient with obstructive or restrictive pulmonary impairments are evaluated and physiological effects of different breathing techniques are studied. The main goal of the research is to evaluate physiotherapeutic methods to optimize postoperative recovery after heart- and lung surgery and to investigate the effects of treatment interventions for different patient groups with decreased pulmonary function.
