Respiratory Care Solutions

A complete platform for ventilation and respiratory care training

Simulation-based solutions for
respiratory care practice

In the evolving world of modern healthcare, respiratory care teams encounter many challenges that require a versatile skill set. Because of this, the scope of clinical practice is expanding, demanding more specialized training to ensure healthcare teams are providing patients the best care possible.

The challenges faced by the respiratory care community were heightened during the COVID-19 pandemic, affecting patient care and safety for those suffering from acute respiratory illness and chronic respiratory diseases (CRDs). Chronic conditions have been a significant contributor to premature mortality rates worldwide, as revealed by the alarming statistics from the 2019 Global Burden of Disease Study1. These findings underscore the urgent need for improved preventive, diagnostic, and therapeutic measures.

455m people live with chronic respiratory disease globally​
4m people worldwide die prematurely due to chronic respiratory diseases​ each year
3rd chronic respiratory disease is the 3rd leading cause of death globally​

This study, along with others, emphasizes the need for respiratory care improvement strategies. Some of these include raising public awareness, improving access to diagnostic tools and medications, and providing more specialized training in respiratory care.

Chronic respiratory disease is a global public health issue

The rise in chronic respiratory diseases (CRDs) underscores the urgency for enhanced preventive measures, improved treatment protocols, and heightened public awareness to mitigate the impacts on individuals and communities.
