RCPs are a vital part of the medical staff team and work closely with nurses and physicians and coordinate with every department of the hospital, managing life support devices, airway management, mechanical ventilation and other aspects of critical care medicine. They also respond to all rapid response calls in the hospital and manage all acuity levels in the ICU.
Our respiratory therapy department specializes in treating respiratory illnesses such as asthma, bronchitis, emphysema, and COPD, as well as the acute breathing problems associated with traumatic injury, heart attack or stroke.
