Respiratory Therapy

The Respiratory Therapy Department provides 24 hours service to patients with respiratory illness. This includes mechanically ventilated patients in Critical Care, Neonatal Intensive Care and Emergency.

As part of the multidisciplinary team, we are involved with all patient populations in all areas of the hospital including Labour and Delivery, Medical Units, Surgical Units, Pediatrics, Critical Care, NICU, Emergency and Long Term Care Units. By performing various diagnostic testing, patient assessment, and evidence based treatments we help patients understand and overcome their symptoms and disease process.

The Pulmonary Function Lab performs in depth lung studies on both inpatients and outpatients including spirometry, diffusion capacity and lung volumes using state of the art diagnostic tools.
