Respiratory Care

Improve the Quality of Your Life

Our program provides, testing, therapy, support and education to stabilize or improve the consequences of lung conditions or disease like COPD.  Board-certified therapists provide routine and emergent services in all areas of the hospital from newborn to geriatric patients.

Patient Support

Patients with  COPD and chronic lung diseases are more prone to depression, anxiety, and other emotional problems. Our Pulmonary Rehabilitation program can give encouragement with monitored exercise to help build strength, endurance, and flexibility.  Support groups provide extra support so patients can feel confident about living with their lung condition.

Inpatient Therapy

Our therapists use medications as well as chest physiotherapy and lung recruiting modalities to treat chronic and acute respiratory diseases.

Pulmonary Function Testing

The first hospital on the peninsula to use state of the art plethysmography equipment to help providers diagnose pulmonary disease. Respiratory therapists test for a variety of pulmonary diseases using spirometry, plethysmography, and diffusion.

Exercise and Education

Pulmonary Rehabilitation is offered to manage lung disease, support healthy behaviors, and reduce and control breathing difficulties so patients can complete daily activities and live independently.
