Wednesday, October 22nd, 2014

October 26 – November 2 is Respiratory Therapist Week in Canada. This week is a chance to recognize all the Respiratory Therapists who make a difference in the lives of people living with Cardio-Respiratory disease every day.

From the Intensive Care Units to the homes of individuals dealing with the long term effects of chronic respiratory disease, Respiratory Therapists apply their knowledge and skills as part of the healthcare team to improve respiratory health and well-being.

From managing ventilators that assist breathing to providing education and disease management skills to people suffering from Asthma or COPD, RT’s make a difference every day in the lives of British Columbians.

As a company founded by Respiratory Therapists, We are committed to promoting the role and benefits of our profession. We would like to salute our Colleagues and acknowledge the excellent work they do.
