For most of us breathing is easy - we don't think about it. For some, however, breathing is a struggle. Those who struggle, including people with emphysema, asthma or pneumonia, or heart attack, stroke or accident victims rely on Cardiopulmonary Services to help them feel better.
Under the direction of a physician, our scope of care includes assessing, evaluating and treating all age groups, from infant to geriatric; inpatients and outpatients. When illness, injury or chronic conditions make breathing difficult, our respiratory therapists are here to help you breathe easier.
The Cardiopulmonary Services Department operates 7 days/week, 7 am - 7:30 pm by appointment and by referral only. For additional information, please phone 574-946-2132.
