Respiratory Therapy

Our team of health care professionals at HGH includes a Registered Respiratory Therapist with over 30 years of experience.  Some of the RT services provided are aerosolized drug therapy to treat lung diseases such as COPD and Asthma, and EKG testing -a noninvasive test used to measure electrical activity in the heart.  We provide mechanical ventilation in the ER if needed until critically ill patients can be transported to an ICU.  We use non-invasive ventilation (BIPAP) in  the ER and the medical floor to help patients recover from acute and chronic diseases. 

Outpatient testing includes Spirometry, an airflow test for diseases like COPD and Asthma, and Holter Monitoring, a 24 hour heart rhythm test.
