Respiratory Therapy Services
Inpatient Respiratory Care
Respiratory therapists at UMC are highly skilled professionals who provide a wide-range of care to help manage multiple breathing problems caused by disease or illness such as pneumonia, asthma, COPD, cardiovascular disorders and problems caused by trauma or accidents.
They provide care in general inpatient care areas as well as in many areas throughout the hospital.
We implement best practice with the use of our “therapist-driven protocols” to evaluate, treat, educate and monitor patients while working in a variety of settings.
UMC respiratory therapists are also a part of a multidisciplinary team which includes physicians, nurses, pharmacists, physical therapists, dietitians, social services and more.
Outpatient Respiratory Care
In the outpatient setting, pulmonary diagnostic therapists assist our medical staff in the diagnosis and evaluation of lung and other medical conditions with state-of-the-art equipment.
