Our Respiratory Therapy department provides services to both inpatients and outpatients with pulmonary (lung) diseases or dysfunctions. Our caring, highly-skilled therapists evaluate, treat and care for people who have breathing problems such as:

  • • Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)
  • • Bronchial asthma
  • • Chronic bronchitis
  • • Neuromuscular disease
  • • Restrictive disorders
  • • Emphysema
  • • Cystic fibrosis

Respiratory Therapy services at Island Health are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. As key members of the hospital’s rapid response team, our respiratory therapists are on stand-by, ready to evaluate and treat heart-and-lung related life-threatening symptoms. But they don’t stop there–they continuously monitor a patient’s condition and are prepared to make necessary adjustments in treatment.

Comprehensive Care

In addition, respiratory therapy professionals provide a range of patient and family education, which is crucial to providing comprehensive care to promote recovery and keep patients healthier longer.
