Our dedicated Ventilator Care Unit, staffed 24/7 by Licensed Respiratory Therapists, enhances the quality of life of the pulmonary-comprised patient. Our team of Pulmonary Specialists, Licensed Respiratory Therapists and Rehabilitation Experts deliver all-encompassing ventilator and tracheostomy care as they teach patients to breath on their own once again.
Our specialized care includes:
- Ventilator Weaning & Management
- 24/7 Respiratory Therapists on Staff
- Tracheostomy Care
- Cardiopulmonary Safety
- Bronchial Hygiene
- Oxygen Therapy & Monitoring
- Specialized Rehabilitation Regimens
- CPAP & BiPAP Machines
- Piped-in Oxygen
- Nebulizer & Aerosol Treatments
- Patient/Family Respiratory Education
To ensure the best possible outcomes, individualized weaning schedules are crafted following a hands-on assessment and close observation. When patients no longer require a ventilator, they are transferred to our dedicated Step-Down Unit for continuous monitoring and care.
Throughout this rigorous and demanding process, patients and their families receive an unparalleled level of support.
