The respiratory care team at Hendricks Regional Health provides comprehensive pulmonary services and is led by a physician board-certified in pulmonary medicine, critical care and sleep medicine.
Those with a lung disease or disorder can experience difficulty breathing and may not be able to supply their body with the oxygen it needs. Our pulmonary services are focused on providing testing, diagnosis and treatment for lung disease and disorders.
We offer a variety of services, including pulmonary function testing, cardiopulmonary exercise testing, advanced ventilator management, bronchoscopy and overnight sleep studies. Care for a full range of
pulmonary conditions is provided in both an outpatient setting as well as for those
staying in the hospital.
Experienced, certified respiratory therapists work with hospitalists and
other medical specialists to care for hospitalized patients staying in
the medical unit, intensive care unit and other hospital areas. All of our respiratory therapists are certified in neonatal resuscitation and provide support during every high-risk birth in the Hendricks Regional Health Childbirth Center.
A comprehensive pulmonary rehabilitation program is available for patients at risk for lung
disease, or who have experienced lung problems such as chronic
obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), emphysema, asthma, pulmonary
fibrosis and primary pulmonary hypertension. Participating in rehab can
help patients improve their quality of life through breathing training,
muscle strengthening and building endurance; and helps to prevent future
problems or complications.
