October 22 – 28 is respiratory care week, an annual opportunity to celebrate and thank our dedicated physicians, nurses, and respiratory therapists for their hard work to help us breathe a little easier.

For more than 40 years, respiratory care week has served as a reminder of the critical work health care professionals do to treat patients with respiratory illnesses and chronic conditions. COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease) and other respiratory diseases cause more than 150,000 deaths in the U.S. every year, and chronic lower respiratory diseases were the 6th leading cause of death in the U.S. in 2022.

The prevalence of respiratory illnesses and conditions highlights the widespread need for high-quality respiratory care and the importance of keeping your lungs healthy. From regular exercise to avoiding smoking to getting regular checkups for lung diseases, there are a host of preventative measures that can help everyone keep their lungs healthy.
