Respiratory Education and Support

We offer resources, quizzes and more so you can learn about breathing conditions and make informed decisions about treatment. Many of our care sites offer classes to assist with your respiratory issues.

Do you have questions about a respiratory condition?

Our health library for respiratory conditions is a great place to start to learn about common conditions. You can search for general respiratory health information or find details on a specific condition, such as asthma or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).

Learn about asthma

Asthma involves spasms of the bronchi in the lungs, which makes breathing difficult. Asthma is one of the most common respiratory conditions we treat. We treat asthma in adults, teens and children. Asthma is the most common long-term childhood disease and can be frightening for both kids and their caregivers.

Take our asthma quiz to get the facts about your child’s asthma.

Learn about asthma in older adults and take our asthma knowledge quiz.

Learn about chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a condition that makes breathing progressively more difficult over time.

Take our COPD quiz to find out how much you know about the causes and symptoms of COPD.

Surgical care when you need

Thoracic surgery is surgery on your chest cavity. This can include the lungs, ribs, diaphragm, structures around the heart (not the heart), the upper spine and surrounding organs.

Thoracic surgery may be a recommended treatment for some chest or lung conditions. Learn what to expect if you are scheduled for surgery.
