lookout for an individual patient's readiness to breathe on their own again," said Dr. Snyder. "We are frequently able to wean patients off  their ventilator who could not be weaned at the transferring hospital." 

Dr. Snyder also says that even a cold or a case of influenza can lead to much more challenging health issues for some Americans.

"Select Medical is committed to helping patients and their families cope with these deeper challenges," says Dr. Snyder, adding that it is "not enough to liberate patients from mechanical ventilation. We want to give patients their lives back, and increasingly, we are able to do that with new tools and protocols."

The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends that everyone six months of age and older be immunized. According to the American Lung Association, between 15 and 60 million Americans suffer from influenza in an average year and more than 250,000 patients are hospitalized. In advance of approaching winter weather, the American Association for Respiratory Care has named October 23-29 as National Respiratory Care Week.

The Select Medical/Opinion Research Poll surveyed 1,005 adults by telephone October 6-9, 2011. Additional information about the poll results and methodology are available upon request.

Select Medical is a leading provider of specialized care for patients with acute or chronic respiratory conditions and operates 110 specialized hospitals nationwide, including Select Specialty Hospital, Regency Hospitals, and Great Lakes Specialty Hospitals.
