Respiratory Therapy at Gaylord

Respiratory therapists work with patients who are ventilator dependent as well as those who have chronic obstructive pulmonary disease such as emphysema, chronic bronchitis, and other conditions including asthma, cystic fibrosis, and interstitial, neuromuscular, occupational, and environmental lung disease. The RT will initially assess the patient’s respiratory needs, including oxygen, medication therapies, airway clearance modalities and airway interventions. The RT staff will also provide education on breathing interventions to maintain optimal respiratory function.
