Cardio-respiratory course on cardiac patients

Physiotherapy students from LUNEX University recently had a unique opportunity to enhance their knowledge and skills in cardio-respiratory physiotherapy by attending a class with members from the Association Luxembourgeoise des Groupes Sportifs pour Cardiaques (ALGSC).

The ALGSC is a non-profit organization that promotes physical activity for people with heart disease. Its members are individuals who have undergone cardiac rehabilitation and who are committed to maintaining an active and healthy lifestyle.

By working with the ALGSC, the students were able to practice their skills on real-life patients with cardiac conditions.

The collaboration between LUNEX University and the ALGSC provided a valuable learning experience for the students, and also helped to raise awareness of the importance of physiotherapy in the management of cardiac conditions. It also served as an example of the importance of interdisciplinary collaboration in healthcare, and the benefits that can be gained by bringing together professionals from different fields.

Overall, the cardio-respiratory class with members from the ALGSC was a valuable experience for the physiotherapy students at LUNEX University. It provided them with a unique opportunity to learn from experienced professionals and to gain practical experience in the assessment and treatment of patients with cardiac conditions. The collaboration between LUNEX University and the ALGSC serves as an example of the benefits of interdisciplinary collaboration in healthcare and the importance of promoting physical activity for people with heart disease.
