Celebrate Respiratory Week
October 20-October 26

Ozark Health has a great Respiratory Department, and we are so excited to celebrate them.

The Respiratory Department at Ozark Health has over 150 years of combined experience. Each year, they complete over 300 Pulmonary Function Tests and a whopping 14,000 procedures. They have a wide variety of therapist that range from CRT, RRT, NPS, and BSRRT. Their services include all aspects of respiratory care inpatient and outpatient procedures.

A respiratory therapist is a specialized healthcare practitioner trained in pulmonary medicine in order to work therapeutically with people suffering from pulmonary disease. Respiratory therapists graduate from a community college or university with a certification in respiratory therapy and have passed a national board certifying examination.

As you can see, Respiratory does so much! Please help us celebrate them, and all the wonderful things they do for Ozark Health.
