What is Respiratory Therapy?
There are several different forms of lung disease and many of them are
incurable. A respiratory disease can have a serious impact on your quality
of life, and while it may not always be curable, the symptoms can be treated.
A respiratory therapist focuses on diagnosing the cause of a patient’s
difficulties and teaching prescribed treatments that will combat the debilitating
effects. They also train patients on how to use equipment that can help
them breathe easier.
Your respiratory therapist will monitor your response to treatment and
make adjustments based on the methods that prove most effective. The ultimate
goal of the therapy is to improve your quality of life and help you live
