The world's largest school of physiotherapy”
A complete Postgraduate Certificate created for physiotherapy professionals, which will allow you to combine your training with other occupations and access from anywhere with total flexibility"
Respiratory physiotherapy is part of physiotherapy, but focusing on the pathophysiology of the respiratory system, both medical and surgical, requiring a demanding knowledge of the respiratory system and the existing techniques for its treatment, healing and stabilization.
The disciplinary consideration of respiratory physiotherapy with a scientific-technical basis began in the late twentieth century, thanks to technological advances that allow measuring respiratory work and techniques, and is currently becoming necessary and essential in different hospital units. Therefore, it is essential that physical therapists update their knowledge in respiratory physiotherapy and acquire new techniques and tools to apply in their daily practice.
Physiotherapy is considered one of the therapeutic pillars in the management of patients with pulmonary diseases, whether obstructive or restrictive, chronic or acute.
The increase in the incidence of respiratory pathologies that we are going to see during this Postgraduate Certificate, both in children and adults, considerably affects the quality of life of the patients who suffer from them, as well as our health system, with a high social and economic cost due to hospitalization days, sick leave and early death.
The Postgraduate Certificate has a teaching staff specialized in respiratory physiotherapy, who contribute both their practical experience in their day-to-day work in private practice, as well as their lengthy experience in teaching at national and international level. In addition, it has the advantage of being a 100% online specialization, so the student can decide from where to study and at what time to do it, this way, they can flexibly self-direct their study hours.
