Joint Chest-SGP Congress 2017
This congress tackles a broad range of topics in respiratory medicine, emphasising the clinical aspects of diagnosis and treatment as well as recent results of clinical trials playing a role in clinical decision-making. It will feature interactive sessions, plenary discussions, critical appraisals on controversial topics, year in review news and workshops (hands-on and simulation experiences in lung function techniques including bodyplethysmography, N2 washout techniques, respiratory physiotherapy, as well as interventional pneumology including bronchoscopy with BAL/TBB, EBUS, ELVR with coils and valves, management of bleeding, chest tube placement). Furthermore, the General Assemblies of the Swiss Respiratory Society (Schweizerische Gesellschaft für Pneumologie, SGP) and the Swiss Society for Paediatric Pneumology (Schweizerische Gesellschaft für Pädiatrische Pneumologie) will take place during the congress.
Several sessions and satellite symposia will focus on the treatment of severe asthma (e. g. personalised treatments, anti-IgE).
