Pulmonary rehabilitation – This comprehensive education and exercise program may benefit patients who have chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), emphysema, asthma, chronic bronchitis, lung cancer, and other chronic lung conditions.
Respiratory therapy – Our respiratory therapists work with patients to reduce and manage complications caused by respiratory problems. Patients with COPD, emphysema, asthma, chronic bronchitis, lung cancer, and other chronic and acute lung conditions may benefit from respiratory care. Respiratory therapy includes administering aerosol-based medications, analyzing blood samples to determine levels of oxygen and other gases, oxygen administration, incentive spirometry, CPAP/BiPAP, manage artificial airways, manage life support mechanical ventilation systems, counsel individuals in cardiopulmonary health (e.g., asthma education, smoking cessation, etc.) and consult with physicians and members of the medical team to recommend a change in therapy.
Pulmonary function Lab - a complete evaluation of the respiratory system including patient history, physical examinations, chest x-ray examinations, arterial blood gas analysis, and tests of pulmonary function. Pulmonary function tests (PFTs) are a group of tests that measure how well your lungs work. This includes how well you’re able to breathe and how effective your lungs are able to bring oxygen to the rest of your body. Your doctor may order these tests: if you’re having symptoms of lung problems.
