Mechanical Ventilation


Our licensed respiratory therapists initiate and maintain all forms of positive pressure life support systems such as mechanical ventilators and non-invasive ventilation in both adults and newborns.  Our therapists intubate both adults and newborns to facilitate airway protection and provide the means for mechanical ventilation.  Eastablished wean protocols enable our therapists to wean ventilator patients in a safe and efficient manner.
