Respiratory Therapy CEUs for Doctors and Nurses

The incidence of lung and airway diseases, commonly referred to as respiratory or pulmonary infections, like influenza, tuberculosis, and pneumonia has been rising across the world over the past few decades.

Other than lung infection, the incidence of other non-infective pulmonary diseases including chronic bronchitis, COPD, lung cancer, and asthma is also increasing at an alarming rate.

Hence, there is a need to focus on improving the healthcare systems across the world in order to enhance the outcomes of treatments in the field of pulmonary medicine.

It is estimated that acute respiratory tract infections, asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, lung cancer, and tuberculosis are the leading causes of death in the world. These conditions have been found to cause enormous global morbidity. Also, in spite of substantial progress being made in introducing advanced therapies, it has become difficult to reduce the disease burden from these illnesses, possibly due to the lack of awareness about the risk factors and early warning signs of these conditions and the inefficient accessto the healthcare facilities provided to patients.

This marks the need to emphasize continued education and training of medical professionals to help them educate their patients and provide the best possible treatment to them. It is also important to train doctors, nurses, and other medical professionals about the early warning signs and the more accurate and sensitive markers of pulmonary diseases so that they can detect these conditions in their patients at earlier stages.

These steps are expected to help curb the rising incidence of lung diseases including infectious and non-infectious acute and chronic disorders.

Our AARC Approved CEUs are aimed at educating medical professionals, especially doctors and nurses, about the causative factors and the more effective diagnostic tools and treatments for these conditions. Attending our Respiratory Therapy Continuing Education CEUs is encouraged to ensure you are able to recommend the most effective therapies to your patients in order to improve treatment outcomes as well as patient satisfaction.


Moreover, it has also been observed that the common nasopharyngeal infections often resulting in nasal discharge, chronic bronchitis that leads to recurring bouts of cough and sputum, and pneumonia that causes cough with sputum can create stress on the respiratory system leading to a high risk of developing persistent breathing difficulties.

There are several bacteria and viruses that can contribute to the development of these nasopharyngeal infections and other conditions like bronchitisor pneumonia. These infections tend to spread easily from infected patients to healthy people through contaminated droplets released in the air when the infected person sneezes and coughs.

These respiratory disorders are the leading causes of mortality and morbidity linked to infectious diseases across the globe. It is estimated that nearly four million people die due to acute respiratory infections every year. About 98% of these cases are found to occur due to infections in the lower respiratory tract. The risk of death is higher in children, infants, and the elderly, especially in middle-income and low-income countries. 

These infections also form a large share of consultations with pulmonary medicine physicians and admissions to healthcare facilities.

Our Respiratory Therapy CEUs offer an easy and convenient way for healthcare professionals to keep themselves updated about the latest guidelines related to the prevention and treatment of these diseases allowing them to manage their patients in a more efficient way. 

During our Respiratory Therapy Conference, you will get an opportunity to interact with our panel of expert physicians and ask questions to improve your knowledge and gain clarity about the management of pulmonary diseases. You can attend our local conference or destination conference, or join webinars for online education in order to keep yourself updated about the latest guidelines from the healthcare authorities about the diagnosis and treatment of lung diseases.

Our A & T Lectures are AARC-approved and offer continued medical education about the research studies being conducted related to the safety and effectiveness of different therapies. Being aware of the impact of these therapies would allow doctors and nurses to recommend the most effective treatments and take proper care of their patients suffering from pulmonary diseases.

Our speakers have years of clinical experience and have established their expertise in the field of pulmonary medicine. They believe in sharing their knowledge with doctors and nurses from different countries to improve the healthcare systems across the world. They also aim to improve the prognosis of pulmonary diseases by guiding physicians and nurses about the most effective ways to manage these ailments.

Moreover, it is also important to note that the incidence of specific respiratory disorders, their distribution, and outcomes vary according to factors such as:

  • Effectiveness and availability of medical care and infection prevention and control measures including the administration of vaccines and isolation capacity to limit or prevent the spread of the infections
  • Environmental conditions like air pollutants, humidity, hygiene, household crowding, temperature, and season
  • Host factors such as the patient's age, immune status, history of smoking, concurrent infections with other pathogens, nutritional status, and underlying medical conditions

Doctors and nurses should be aware of these factors and how they can increase or decrease the risk of the spread of respiratory infections. Being aware of the preventive measures for respiratory infection control could also help them reduce the global burden on the healthcare system and limit the incidence of mortality and morbidity associated with these disorders.

A & T Respiratory Lectures offer a convenient way to doctors and nurses to gain skills and knowledge related to these aspects of respiratory therapies.

You can learn more about pulmonary infections and how to prevent them by attending our respiratory webinars. It can keep you updated about the prevailing healthcare quality and the need to improve healthcare services to ensure optimum patient satisfaction.
