At SKH, our Respiratory Therapists provide services to the Intensive Care Units (ICU), High Dependency Units (HDU) to manage critically ill patients or to the general ward for patients who need less acute respiratory care and support. Our therapists work around the clock with the ICU team to cater to the respiratory and emergency requirements of patients. Our team of Respiratory Therapists are the frontline medical professionals responding to national emergencies and pandemics.
Respiratory therapy is of great help for patients who are struggling with lung and breathing-related problems. When the muscles in our lungs begin to deteriorate rapidly, this can lead to issues with breathing and not getting sufficient oxygen. Lung conditions are some of the most commonly seen conditions in elderly patients.
Respiratory therapy is a treatment approach that can help patients cope with breathing problems and lung diseases. It helps to boost breathing efficiency in those suffering from emphysema, pneumonia, bronchitis, and Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). It is also a great treatment approach for patients who are simply struggling to breathe optimally. Our team of respiratory therapist will work hand-in-hand with our patients to manage symptoms, improve well-being, and bolster the quality of life.
Our Respiratory Therapists are also involved in outpatient services e.g., Sleep Disorders Unit, Respiratory Medicine clinic.
