Respiratory Information in Spinal Cord Injuries

RISCI is a national special interest group consisting of representatives from all the GB and Ireland Spinal Injury Units with a common passion, interest and speciality in Respiratory Issues in Spinal Cord Injury

RISCI looks to review and improve the respiratory management of people with SCI at each level, from the immediate time period post injury, across the rehabilitation journey and through and beyond discharge to lifelong management. We aim to provide a professional forum for discussion and to facilitate research and audit with a respiratory focus

This current website is under substantial construction – so watch this space for things to come!
