Pulmonary and Respiratory Nursing

A respiratory nurse, also called a pulmonary care nurse, is a nursing professional that plays an instrumental role in the treatment of patients who are suffering from respiratory problems. As problems in the respiratory system can result in several complications, some of which can be fatal, proper treatment is essential. A respiratory nurse will often care for patients that suffer from both acute and chronic respiratory illnesses. Such illnesses include asthma, pneumonia, bronchitis, emphysema, tuberculosis, and lung cancer.

Although much of the care that respiratory patients receive at a primary, secondary and tertiary level is provided by nonspecialised nurses, patients in many European countries are seen and managed by respiratory nurse specialists. Respiratory nurses are engaged in the holistic care of patients with lung diseases, with the aim of maintaining the highest nursing standards, while working in collaboration with other members of a healthcare team. Specialist nurses work in various settings (inpatient and outpatient hospital departments and patients’ homes) and, in addition to providing patient care, they are often involved in preventive programmes (e.g. smoking cessation and patient education)
