What Is Respiratory Therapy?

Respiratory therapy refers to many therapeutic practices that support your cardiovascular system, also called your cardiopulmonary system. This system is the cycle of blood for oxygenation by way of your lungs and heart.

When you get more oxygen into your lungs, you get more oxygen into your blood, which then translates to more essential oxygen to every part of your body. Increasing oxygen levels as part of your cardiopulmonary care can result in clearer thinking, less fatigue, and improved healing of wounds and injuries.
