Our Pulmonary Program offers a comprehensive range of proven, leading-edge treatments and technologies that are tailored to your specific needs. Our goal is to help you meet your goals and to enjoy life as fully as possible. We accept patients with pulmonary disorders from acute care settings who still require ongoing medical, nursing and respiratory care. Typically inpatients continue on to Outpatient Pulmonary Rehabilitation. Inpatient admission is not required for Outpatient Pulmonary Rehabilitation.
Our personalized approach in planning and delivering the exact care you need ensures that you will have the skills and resources required to recover or to successfully manage your condition.
Gaylord's Pulmonary Program is designed to help patients dealing with a variety of pulmonary issues including weaning from a ventilator, end-stage lung disease, serious pneumonia, and pulmonary insufficiency. Often patients come to us needing to be weaned from a ventilator and dealing with a tracheostomy. This video provides a comprehensive overview from admission through discharge.
Gaylord Specialty Healthcare's Pulmonary Program accepts patients with pulmonary disorders from acute care setting, but who still require ongoing medical, nursing and respiratory care. Typically inpatients continue on to Outpatient Pulmonary Rehabilitation. Inpatient admission is not required for Outpatient Pulmonary Rehabilitation. Our Director of Critical Care and Pulmonary, Lorraine Trow, MD, talks about the types of conditions treated in program including COPD, cystic fibrosis, pulmonary fibrosis, emphysema, and adult respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS). The program treats and weans patients who are a ventilator. Gaylord is a Center of Excellence for the Passy-Muir Speaking Valve and Vapotherm High Flow oxygen therapy.
Gaylord Specialty Healthcare's Pulmonary Program uses the Vapotherm High Flow oxygen delivery system which helps our ventilator dependent patients, who have a trach or are on a ventilator, recover more quickly. Gaylord has significantly decreased its vent weaning days and our decannulation rate has increased dramatically. This helps patients have a choice on where they go after discharge from Gaylord. The Vapotherm system has helped us to reduce our infection rate and helps patients to be more comfortable while on a ventilator.
