The respiratory department consists of 6 state licensed, board certified or registered respiratory therapists who offer respiratory care 24 hours a day / 7 days a week. We provide oxygen therapy, oxygen saturation, medication administration through the use of hand held nebulizers, chest physiotherapy, incentive spirometry, which helps our patients breathe easier. We complete arterial blood gases and pulmonary function testing to identify pulmonary disease. We provide ventilator assistance in emergency situations and new state of the art electrocardiograph to identify cardiac disease with electrocardiograms and rhythm strips. We also provide complete Holter and telemetry monitoring.
