Ad-hoc Exhibition in St. Gall (26/03/2003)

On 26/03/2003 a meeting of pneumologists interested in historical lung devices took place in St. Gall. All colleagues who collected devices connected with lung diseases or lung patients brought them to the meeting, which resulted in a comprehensive ad-hoc exhibition. It became the basis for this “Internet Museum for Medical-Pneumological Collectibles and Antiques”.


The collection of medical cups shows that objects which did not serve lung patients exclusively were also exhibited.
