The Respiratory Care department of Dodge County Hospital works closely with the physicians to provide treatment and pulmonary diagnostics for infants through geriatric patients. Diagnostics and therapy are provided 24 hours a day, seven days a week by Certified and Registered Respiratory Therapists under the guidance of the Respiratory Medical Director.
We provide life support to those with acute lung injury as well as maintenance therapy for those with chronic pulmonary disease. Outpatient and inpatient services related to emergency/trauma, sleep apnea patients, asthma sufferers, newborns with under-developed lungs, people with chronic lung disease, people requiring ventilator support are provided by therapists using state-of-the art equipment and techniques.
The goal of providing the highest quality healthcare for these patients continues to drive the therapists in the Respiratory Department and Dodge County Hospital.
