If you can’t get your breath, nothing else matters. We know dyspnea is an extremely unpleasant, frightening sensation that causes suffering in hundreds of millions of patients. Yet few scientists spend their time trying to understand this sensation.
We founded the Dyspnea Society to organize periodic 2-day international meetings bringing dyspnea scientists together in a collegial atmosphere with plenty of time to converse. Andrew Binks and I organized Dyspnea2005, 2009, & 2013 in the US. We have been pleased to turn over the responsibility for Dyspnea2016 to new organizers on a different continent. Thanks to all for attending the 2016 meeting and sharing your data, thoughts and convictions.
The conversation will continue in 2018 in Montréal, Québec, Canada.
See you there!
The Dyspnea Society is an international multidisciplinary community that promotes collegial exchange amonst scientific and clinical professionals. Our aim is to advance scientific knowledge of dyspnea and its translation to clinical practice.
