Stiftung Chance helps to facilitate the ongoing training of nursing staff in new medical techniques, for example in extracorporeal membrane oxygenation ECMO (lung support). During the training programme in London, staff learn how to use the complex apparatus and cope with highly demanding patient care, thanks to financing from the Stiftung Chance.


Stiftung Chance finances research projects; for example, we have helped to finance research into respiratory diseases in critically ill children. Thanks to such research, it is now possible to limit the extent of tissue damage occurring as the result of respiratory illness and to reduce the time children require on ventilators.
