Respiratory Therapy

Respiratory Therapy

Respiratory therapy is essential in treating a variety of diseases or breathing conditions for patients of all ages. Mild to severe respiratory infections can create dismal living conditions and respiratory therapy strives to provide patients with the ideal combination of medication, rehabilitation and intensive care to clear infection or manage symptoms caused by a disease. Patients experiencing breathing problems or lung complications will benefit from this form of therapy.

When treating a respiratory infection or diseases, medication is one of the most important things a patient needs in order to recover. Most respiratory infections heal with intensive care and medication, but not every case or patient requires the same level of care. Depending on the level of severity, a patient may do well with only one of the three features while another patient might need medication and rehabilitation to heal properly. Common diseases affecting the respiratory system include emphysema, pneumonia, asthma and bronchitis – ranging from mild cases to very severe. Respiratory therapy works with patients at all levels to provide them with care and attention to further the treatment of the condition and encourage recovery.

At Proactive Healthcare Services, we know that respiratory ailments affect patients of all ages, though the elderly are often more susceptible to developing bronchitis or pneumonia after a bought of illness. Patients ranging from childhood to senior adulthood experience asthma, and in some cases, it becomes severe enough to require medication and rehabilitation. Respiratory therapy is beneficial for all patients suffering from any number of lung conditions, including:

  • Breathing problems
  • Pneumonia
  • Bronchitis
