The goal of respiratory therapy is to help patients breathe easier. Our respiratory therapists perform diagnostic tests for patients who have difficulty breathing. They also assist with oxygen therapy, breathing treatments and ventilator support.
Respiratory therapy is a common treatment for asthma, chronic lung problems, bronchitis, emphysema, cystic fibrosis, lung cancer and other ailments that diminish lung capacity.
Respiratory therapy is provided for inpatients. We also perform pulmonary function testing for outpatients.
