Better Breathing is Possible

Licensed and credentialed respiratory therapists provide excellent diagnostic and therapeutic services so you can breathe better. Interventions may be as simple as a deep breathing exercise or as complex as invasive mechanical ventilation (life support). Available to both inpatients and outpatients, Respiratory Therapy works with all ages and on any patient that is having difficulty breathing. Respiratory therapists treat asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), cystic fibrosis, and severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS). They also provide emergency care to patients who are victims of a heart attack, stroke, near drowning, or traumatic injury.
