Care provided by respiratory therapists that have completed specialized training in pulmonary medicine to specifically treat patients with pulmonary disease.
Therapists initiate and manage the life support, provide therapeutic treatment, help patient’s manage breathing conditions, and educate the patient about their pulmonary disease. This will help the patient and the patient’s family to better meet their specialized needs.
We provide a wide range of services to meet the needs of our patients:
Pulmonary Function Tests:
This procedure will help determine lung function. By having the results of this test, the physician can make more informed decisions to meet the need of the patient.
Arterial Blood Gas Analysis:
This blood drawn lab test evaluates the acid-base balance of the blood to learn more about the breathing pattern of the patient and can help evaluate the oxygen level. This will help determine if a patient will need oxygen full time or other devices to help keep this balance within normal range.
EKG – Electrocardiogram:
This is a test that records the electrical activity of the rhythm of the heart. This diagnostic tool can help treat irregular heart rhythms or detect new abnormal rhythms that could lead to a heart attack.
EEG – Electroencephalogram:
This diagnostic test records the brain activity over a set period of time to determine seizure activity or other neurological conditions.
This state of the art digital monitor can be ordered by a physician to be worn for 24 or 48 hours to retain heart rhythm. This helps your physician develop a more appropriate treatment plan and be able to make the best decision for your heart health care.
