About BreathSounds


BreathSounds, BreathSounds Media, and BreathSounds.Org was founded by John B. D`Urbano, RRT. Mr. D`Urbano has been a Respiratory Therapist in the Phoenix area since June of 1992. He's spent the first half of his career at a top teaching hospital specializing in Emergency Medicine / Level-1 Trauma, with a strong emphasis in critical burn injuries. Currently he's working as a Cardiovascular Respiratory Therapist in a very unique program in one of the top healthcare networks in the state of Arizona. Mr. D`Urbano proudly admits that "...between these two positions I’ve been afforded medical education and experience that I could never put a price on…"

Mr. D'Urbano also had this to say...

"Gandhi said 'Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever'. In medicine that is a very powerful quote, and one that I try to live by.

In the early years I was taken under the wing of an attending emergency medicine Physician who has never failed to challenge me. He’s proven to me that there is something to learn from each and every patient encounter. One of the first lessons he taught me was this; `every patient you see, regardless of their history, is a real live human being, and nothing less. At the very least they deserve your very best`. That’s a lesson I have never forgotten, and I hope you won’t either"

 "Healthcare is a challanging and rewarding career that I truely enjoy. There is no doubt that I will continue to make a positive impact on my patients`, my colleagues`, and the community I serve. If you have any questions or comments please feel free to drop me a note anytime by visiting the 'Contact Us' section of this web site".
