Respitory Therapy

Respiratory Therapy Services

Respiratory therapy services are available for hospital patients who need assistance with their breathing. Our specially trained Respiratory Therapists provide round-the-clock care throughout the hospital, to patients of all ages.

Patients who have a COPD diagnosis can be evaluated for the current state of their disease, and assessed for a variety of problems often associated with chronic lung disease. These assessments are specially designed to address smoking cessation, supplemental oxygen requirements, sleep-related breathing disorders, medication management, and the appropriateness of pulmonary rehabilitation.

Patients in the Ventilator Unit at neighboring The Pines at Rutland nursing home also receive treatment from our respiratory therapists. This unique service is Vermont’s only 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, long-term ventilator care facility. The goal of the respiratory therapists who work in this program is to decrease, to the degree possible, the patients’ dependence on mechanical ventilation.
