Respiratory Therapy

Get the Support You Need to Breathe Easy Again

Lung diseases can take a serious toll on a person’s quality of life. At Sidra Medicine, we are just as committed to helping our patients manage symptoms and feel comfortable as we are to treating the problem at its source.

Respiratory Therapy is focused on improving heart and lung function for patients who have difficulty breathing.

Our respiratory therapy team provides services to neonatal, pediatric, adolescent, and high-risk obstetrical patients. Patients are referred to respiratory therapy for many cardiopulmonary disorders, which may include asthma, emphysema, bronchiolitis, cystic fibrosis, pneumonia, or lung cancer. Respiratory Therapists are called to assist patients who have suffered traumatic injury, or even cardiac arrest.

Respiratory Therapy may involve:

  • Managing life support ventilation systems
  • Cardiopulmonary assessments
  • Pulmonary lung function testing
  • Practicing breathing techniques
  • Oxygen therapy
  • Humidity therapy
