Respiratory Therapy

Treating Patients with Respiratory Difficulties

One of Sierra View Medical Center's most essential care teams is our respiratory therapists, who work closely with doctors and nurses to assess and treat patients who are experiencing cardiovascular and respiratory difficulties. Our team of Board Certified and Registered Respiratory Therapists are committed to providing top-notch healthcare services.

Patients who benefit from our respiratory therapy services include:

  • Patients with chronic lung problems like asthma, bronchitis, or emphysema
  • Patients who have suffered a heart attack, stroke or other trauma

Our Respiratory Therapy Team

Our team of respiratory therapists are highly skilled and trained at airway management. Additionally, they play an essential role on our Code Blue (cardiac arrest) team. Our therapists make rounds throughout the hospital to observe both patients and equipment. If a patient is experiencing respiratory difficulty or abnormal blood levels, respiratory therapists can adjust ventilator settings or test equipment for mechanical issues.

Our Respiratory Therapy Department also provides diagnostic and education services:

  • Pulmonary Function Testing
  • EEG (Electroencephalogram)
  • Asthma and COPD Education
  • Smoking Cessation
