Respiratory Care

Care for adults with cardiopulmonary disorders

The Respiratory Care team provides diagnostic evaluation and treatment to patients with abnormalities and/or diseases of the cardiopulmonary system.

Our respiratory therapists are active in all areas of the hospital, including the emergency department, critical care areas, rehabilitation departments and pulmonary function testing lab.

We provide families and patients with education and training in all aspects of specific disease management and management of the respiratory system including:

  • mechanical ventilation
  • tracheostomy care
  • suctioning techniques
  • aerosol delivery

We make sure that families are prepared to care for their loved one, and we teach patients the procedures in preparation for their return to a home setting.
