Respiratory Therapy

Few things are as critical to the existence of life as breathing. Respiratory Therapy at North Kansas City Hospital is committed to maintaining a patient’s airway in any situation. Breathing difficulties occur from strokes, heart attacks, asthma, bronchitis, emphysema and more.

Using treatments individualized to the patient, our RTs work to return breathing functions to normal for patients throughout North Kansas City Hospital. We regularly coordinate our efforts with doctors, nurses and other therapists.

North Kansas City Hospital has again earned the Quality Respiratory Care Recognition (QRCR) award for the eighth consecutive year. The award is part of a national program aimed at helping patients and families make informed decisions about the quality of respiratory care services available in hospitals.
