Respiratory Therapy

Respiratory Therapists are specialized medical professionals who treat problems with the lungs and breathing under the supervision of a medical provider. These certified specialists provide respiratory expertise and allow for more specialized treatments to be done at the local level. There are several things that respiratory therapists do, including:

  • Inpatient breathing treatments and monitoring, including high-flow oxygen, bi-pap and C-pap
  • Pulmonary Function Testing
  • EKGs
  • Holter Monitors
  • Percussion therapy

Respiratory therapists are on site at GCMH Monday–Friday.
