The American Association for Respiratory Care is proud to offer, in audiobook format, Adventures of an Oxy-Phile2 by Dr. Tom Petty, international authority on respiratory disease. Among his many accolades, Dr. Petty was Professor of Medicine at the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center in Denver, Professor of Medicine at Rush-Presbyterian-St. Luke's Medical Center in Chicago, the Founding Chairman of the National Lung Health Education Program and the President of the American College of Chest Physicians. His medical resume is said to be over 50 pages long.
In an ironic twist of fate, Dr. Petty was diagnosed with COPD. Sadly, his journey ended in December, 2009. He wrote the audiobook from a patient's perspective, after developing his own need for supplemental oxygen. Until the day he died, Dr. Petty dedicated his life to improving the lives of patients with respiratory disease. We will miss you Dr. Petty!
