Two-Day Meeting Evaluation & Treatment of Dysphagia in Patients with Tracheostomy

"N. Louros" Conference Center MITERA Hospital

A two-day Meeting focusing on the Evaluation and Treatment of Dysphagia in Patients with Tracheostomy was held on February 19-20, under the aegis of HYGEIA Hospital’s Scientific Board and the Scientific Union of HYGEIA Doctors. The Meeting was extremely important, as it managed to bring together all specialties so as to deal with a group of people who are experiencing a tough everyday life, which gives rise to serious disorders in main functions, such as eating and breathing. It should be noted that similar conventions have not been held in Greece, apart from one-day meetings focusing on dysphagia in general. This meeting focused on dysphagia in patients with tracheostomy and this combination requires that they be evaluated and treated as a separate group of patients.

Welcoming speeches were delivered by the President of HYGEIA’s Scientific Board, Mr Paris Kosmidis; the General Director of HYGEIA Hospital, Mr Andreas Kartapanis; and the President of the Scientific Union of HYGEIA Doctors, Ms Roxani Efthimiadou. The event was organized by Ms Anatoli Paratidou, ENT surgeon.
