Memorial Hospital’s Respiratory Therapy Department offers a variety of services for both inpatients and outpatients.
Most of us have the ability to breathe without distress; unfortunately, some people do experience difficulty breathing, due to chronic or acute conditions. We are able to administer a variety of therapy and treatment for these patients, as well as assist physicians in diagnosing abnormal conditions.
Trained and licensed respiratory therapists are available to assess inpatient respiratory problems and assist the nursing and physicians staff, twenty four hours-a-day, seven days-a-week. We provide services in all hospital areas including the Emergency Department, Critical Care Unit and general patient units for newborn, pediatric and adult patients.
We provide outpatient testing with our state-of-the-art equipment in our Pulmonary Function Laboratory. Services include spirometry testing, complete lung and volume testing, arterial blood gasses, ambulation oximetry with or without oxygen and overnight home sleep oximetry.
