Examples of respiratory in a Sentence

  1. President Barack Obama:

    I remember when I first went to college in Los Angeles in 1979, the air was so bad that you couldn't go running outside, you'd have air quality alerts, and people who had respiratory problems or were vulnerable had to stay inside. We took action, and the air's a lot better.

  2. Rohan Schoeman:

    APPLE WATCH CATCHES GRANDMOTHERS HEART CONDITION, POSSIBLY SAVING HER LIFE The couple went missing in a snowstorm after spending a weekend with friends on November 3. Rescuers located Marsh in time after her husband sent friends photographs of their location. She was flown by air ambulance to the ValldHebron Hospital in Barcelona, where she was connected to an extracorporeal membrane oxygenation machine. The machine stands in for the heart and lungs, pumping blood through the arteries and heating it, which raises the body temperature.Doctors believed she could survive if they treated the hypothermia. This is an exceptional case on a global scale, Eduard Argudo, a doctor from the Vall dHebron hospital told a press conference.There are practically no cases of people being revived after their heart has stopped for so long. CLICK HERE TO SIGN UP FOR OUT LIFESTYLE NEWSLETTER When she arrived at the hospital, Mashsheart was showing no electrical activity and her kidneys and lungs were not functioning, doctors said. Eduard Argudo said the sharp fall in her body temperature may have saved her as the cold preserved her organs. Six hours after entering cardio-respiratory arrest, Marshs heart began to beat naturally again. Marsh, who spent 11 days in hospital recovering, has not suffered any long-term brain damage but has trouble moving her hands which were affected by the cold. When I went home I had damage to my hands. I could not do up my buttons on trousers or put in my earrings. These are small things which are going to get better, she said. Rohan Schoeman, Rohan Schoeman, 36, who is South African and works as a teacher, said the couple had spent the weekend with friends but left early morning without them. At one point the snowfall became very heavy. We found a rock and tried to use it for shelter to avoid adverse weather conditions. Once visibility improved, I could see that our friends had tried to contact us, audrey was losing consciousness so I tried to send some photos to our friends of where we were.

  3. Soumya Swaminathan:

    We're looking at 2022 at least before enough people start getting the vaccine to build immunity, so, for a long time to come, we have to maintain the same kind of measures that are currently being put in place with physical distancing, the masking and respiratory hygiene.

  4. Henry Spiller:

    In adults, the respiratory depression, the part that slows the breathing and you stop breathing, is limited, and so there's a lot less respiratory depression in adults, that's why it was felt to be safer. Unfortunately, in very young children under 5, preschoolers, toddlers, infants... that protection isn't there, and they do get this respiratory depression. It does affect their breathing.

  5. Indra Cidambi:

    When you mix buprenorphine with opioids, there is an increased risk of respiratory depression. That’s what you see when a parent goes into a child’s room and they’re not audible, when someone is on these four rods, they’re not following therapy— they’re easily combining the drugs, and that can lead to death.
