Why Go to a Respiratory Therapist?
Breathing is fundamental to life. Even common conditions such as snoring or asthma can eat away at your overall well-being. Respiratory therapists are medical professionals who train years to help you resolve breathing issues such as emphysema, sleep disorders, COPD, and lung trauma. They are certified to help you find the right respiratory therapy so you can resume an active lifestyle (not to mention getting quality sleep). At Northern Respiratory, we have respiratory therapists and registered nurses to help you get what you need and answer all your questions.
Think You Might Have Sleep Apnea?
If you’re not waking up refreshed, have frequent migraines, or you’re often accused of loud snoring, you might be right. Experts estimate more than 30 million people in North America suffer from sleep disorders, but 80% remain undiagnosed and untreated. Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) is a common sleep disorder that is identified by pauses in breathing while a person is sleeping caused by airway collapse (the tongue and soft palate). Untreated sleep apnea increases your risk for heart failure, stroke, and even insulin dysfunction.
Do You Have Breathing Problems?
Persistent breathing problems can wreak havoc on your life. Long-term breathing problems such as asthma, extreme allergies, pneumonia, or lung cancer can leave your body depleted of necessary oxygen. Left untreated, breathing issues may cause chest pain, coughing, fatigue, or anxiety.
