Respiratory / Sleep Therapy


At the essence of our health and well-being is a simple act that most of us take for granted: the ability to take a breath. But for many, breathing is a constant battle.

As the head of Ananda’s respiratory and sleep therapy division, Dan Elliot draws on several years of experience, first as a paramedic working in emergency and rescue departments and then as a registered respiratory therapist. Dan’s deep rooted knowledge of the respiratory system, combined with Ananda’s leading technology and equipment, allow the respiratory division to analyze, consult on diagnosis’s and treat hundreds of patients seeking to regain maximum pulmonary function.

In addition to treatment, Ananda’s respiratory and sleep therapy services provide invaluable patient education and can help patients with smoking cessation, asthma and COPD management, as well as sleep apnea and insomnia.

What many of the nearly 40% of Canadians who reported suffering from insomnia or some sort of sleep disturbance don’t realize, is that much of their sleep issues begin with how they breathe. The link between breathing and good night’s sleep is essential and here at Ananda, we will provide advice and treatment ensure our patients are breathing better to get the sleep they need to live full, healthy lives.

Here at Ananda, we will:

Obtain and analyze physiological specimens
Interpret physiological data
Perform tests and studies of the cardiopulmonary system
Perform neurophysiological studies
Perform sleep disorder studies
Provide Counselling and Education on Asthma, COPD Management and Smoking Cessation
Administer Oxygen and Positive air pressure (CPAP) when required
