Respiratory Care Services
Our Respiratory Care staff is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week to provide patients at Myrtue Medical Center with all aspects of respiratory care, from ventilator management to breathing treatments.
Our therapists serve on the lifesaving response team that help individuals who have come to the emergency room with breathing difficulties as a result of injury or cardiac or respiratory arrest, as well as hospital patients who need CPR. Breathing assistance includes ventilators in the intensive care unit and equipment that provides Bilevel Positive Airway Pressure (BPAP). We offer chest physical therapy to help clear the lungs among other services. We administer oxygen and medications, provide pulmonary function testing, offer sleep studies, and also perform heart testing and monitoring for cardiac patients. We are there when you need us!
