Respiratory Care

Breathe Easy

Our program provides testing, therapy, support and education to stabilize or improve the consequences of lung conditions and diseases 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 offers monitored exercise to help build strength, endurance, and flexibility.  Provided support groups offer a sense of community so patients can feel confident about living with their lung condition.

Inpatient Therapy

Our therapists use medications, in addition to chest physiotherapy and lung recruiting modalities, to treat chronic and acute respiratory diseases.

Pulmonary Function Testing

Jefferson Healthcare is 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

Cardiopulmonary 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.
