Welcome to Our Blog

Methapharm Respiratory is proud to work with healthcare practitioners to support the right diagnosis for patients exhibiting common respiratory symptoms such as cough, wheeze, and shortness of breath. We are a trusted partner for bronchoprovocation testing, supplying Provocholine and Aridol. We also offer training and education (CRCE) at no cost.

While this blog will not provide education credits, it will explore current issues and interesting topics relevant to readers’ day-to-day work and personal lives. We hope that you will investigate further any of the topics we cover here. Please join us monthly as we share respiratory-related topics and beyond.
