And that can take a toll. Conditions affecting your lungs and airways may make you feel exhausted simply from the effort of trying to breathe. You might also have to change your daily routine, not to mention your future plans. At Cleveland Clinic, we understand that lung function is at the core of how you function. Our respiratory therapy team offers expert care and support throughout the entire treatment process. We can do tests to see how well your lungs are working and provide treatments to help with symptoms. Along with treatment, we’ll teach you and your family about your condition, how to care for yourself and what you can expect down the road. Living with breathing issues isn’t easy, but with our team on your side, it’ll feel much more manageable.
Why Choose Cleveland Clinic for Respiratory Therapy?
Over 200,000 patients from all over the world come to Cleveland Clinic each year for respiratory care. Our specialists use leading-edge treatments to manage lung, allergy and breathing-related conditions. Whether common or rare, you can trust that we’ve seen it before and are prepared to give you excellent and compassionate care.
No matter how many people walk through our doors, we view you as a person, not a number. That means we’ll sit down with you to talk through your diagnosis, and we’ll explain each step of your treatment plan. We’ll also ask how your condition affects your life and what you hope to get out of treatment. Your concerns and needs drive all we do.
There’s no place like home, and sometimes, respiratory therapy at home is what you need. We send the latest technology right to your doorstep. Our respiratory therapists come over and show you how to use the equipment, and they’re on call 24/7 for any questions or concerns you might have.
Teamwork is key to giving you the best care. Our respiratory therapists work with pulmonologists and specialists from other areas to diagnose and manage breathing issues. Your team will keep a close eye on your treatment progress and keep you informed each step of the way.
We’ll usually need to see you in-person. But we can schedule some appointments, like follow-ups, as virtual visits. You can meet with your provider from the comfort of home. Just log in online from your smartphone, computer or tablet.
Cleveland Clinic is a trusted healthcare leader. We’re recognized in the U.S. and through the world for our expertise and care.
