Abstract:
Study comparing the life circumstances and psychosocial status of individuals with high tetraplegia (C1-C4) who are respirator-assisted or respirator-independent. Participants were 82 individuals with high tetraplegia who were 14-24 years post-injury. Differences found between ventilator users and non-users in a number of areas, but quality of life was found to be generally high. The study also identified areas in which assistance was needed.
