Respiratory Services

The respiratory services department at Foothill Regional Medical Center provides diagnostic testing, education, and therapy for patients with chronic and acute respiratory problems. Our specially trained pulmonologists and therapists treat both adults and children with state-of-the-art equipment.

Our respiratory care practitioners provide services to all areas of the hospital, from the emergency department to the ICU. They have expertise in a wide range of respiratory disorders, including the following:

  • Asthma
  • Bronchitis
  • Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)
  • Emphysema
  • Interstitial lung diseases
  • Obstructive sleep apnea
  • Post-trauma and neural damage

The special procedures performed by respiratory care practitioners include tracheostomy, bronchostomy, pulmonary function testing, Lexiscan® injection, and treadmill testing. The department provides pulmonary rehabilitation for patients from our pediatric subacute unit, as well as training for family members on how to operate their child’s ventilator at home.

The respiratory services department is staffed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week with licensed respiratory therapists.
