Wings For Life Keynote Presentation: Intermittent Hypoxia and Neurorecovery
Friday November 10th 08:50 – 09:40
Speaker: Gordon Mitchell

At the end of the session, the participants will be able to:
  1. List the principles of spinal motor plasticity caused by repeated, brief exposures to low oxygen (intermittent hypoxia) .
  2. Discover therapeutic potential of intermittent hypoxia to restore respiratory and non-respiratory motor function after SCI
  3. Appreciate safety issues related to the dose of intermittent hypoxia.
  4. Describe the rationale of efforts to harness acute intermittent hypoxia as a therapeutic modality.
  5. Update recent findings in the translation of this promising treatment modality to humans with chronic SCI.
