Breathing may not be something you think about often. From the moment we are born, breathing becomes the very action that keeps us alive. However, until you can’t breathe, this involuntary action can be taken for granted. For the millions of people across the United States who suffer from conditions such as asthma, COPD, and emphysema, the fear of not being able to breathe is constant and imminent. Fortunately, Respiratory Therapists are here to help! October 23rd-29th is Respiratory Care Week, and Capital Healthcare wants to give Respiratory Therapists the recognition they deserve, as well as give our readers a better glimpse into this heroic profession.
