Paragonix is immensely proud to sponsor one of the most amazing sporting events of 2019: an expedition of a group of 50 patients and medical professionals to the highest mountain of North Africa, Jebel Toubkal (4200m). What’s so incredible about these patients? They have reached the peak of Jebel Toubkal breathing with new lungs! The international group consisted of lung transplant recipients from Austria, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Greece and Romania.
Supported by the amazing medical teams of the Medical University of Vienna and the Medical University of Essen, this trek was not just to achieve the almost impossible, but to gain deep scientific understanding of the impact of high altitude on lung transplant recipients. During the trek, regular measurements of heart function, lung function as well as blood gas analyses were performed.
The research is funded by Lunge Aktiv. Please join us in congratulating the group for this accomplishment!
