Respiratory Therapy

What our Respiratory Therapists can do...

  • Diagnosing lung and breathing disorders and recommending treatment methods;
  • Interviewing patients and doing chest physical exams to determine what kind of therapy is best for their condition;
  • Consulting with physicians to recommend a change in therapy, based on their evaluation of the patient;
  • Analyzing breath, tissue, and blood specimens to determine levels of oxygen and other gases;
  • Managing ventilators and artificial airway devices for patients who can't breathe normally on their own;
  • Responding to Code Blue or other urgent calls for care;
  • Educating patients and families about lung disease so they can maximize their recovery.
