Respiratory Therapy

Inpatient and Outpatient Treatment of Chronic and Acute Respiratory Disorders

A wide spectrum of services is offered through Pershing Health System’s Respiratory Therapy Department. These services include the administration of oxygen, breathing treatments, pulmonary function testing, arterial blood gases, pulse oximetry, and other treatments as needed by patients.

These services are provided for both outpatients and inpatients.

Pershing Health System is unique in that it offers pulmonary function testing with DLCO (Diffusing Capacity for Carbon Monoxide). DLCO is one of a group of pulmonary function testing used in detecting, characterizing, and quantifying lung disease. Not all hospitals include DLCO as a part of their pulmonary function testing regimen. The healthcare providers at Pershing Health System are proud to offer this additional service to better care for our patients.
