Working closely with your managing physician, skilled, licensed therapists will assist in planning and implementing a personalized care plan. Respiratory therapists are in-house 24/7 and are available in all areas of the hospital.
We provide a wide range of diagnostic tests to help your physician with your care plan outside the hospital.
The tests listed above require a referral from your physician.
Your provider may also request you take a small monitor home to wear at night so this measurement can be captured continuously while you sleep. If your physician orders this test, you will come to the hospital to pick up the monitor and be instructed on its use. When you return the monitor the following day, the staff will generate a report from the monitor and send it to your physician.
Your provider may also schedule you to receive instructions on therapies you will do at home like the Flutter Valve or MDI, as well as for instructions for how to perform a home test called the Peak Flow.
