Our Respiratory Care Department provides advanced respiratory services for people of all ages, from newborn babies to our oldest patients. For more information, please call our Respiratory Care office at 530.225.7075 seven days a week from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. For a physician referral, call 888.628.1948.
We work closely with doctors and nurses to develop an individualized patient plan of care including diagnostics; we update the plan as the patient’s condition changes. Our services range from basic support of the respiratory system, to total control through a variety of invasive and non-invasive ventilators when needed.
We also offer information that can help you stop smoking, and education specific to disease management of conditions such as asthma and COPD.
We offer both inpatient and outpatient diagnostic testing, including:
- Arterial blood gas analysis
- Bedside pulmonary function testing
- Complete pulmonary function testing
- Endobronchial ultrasound
- Electroencephalogram (inpatient only)
- Fiberoptic bronchoscopy
Mercy Medical Center’s pulmonary rehabilitation program helps improve the quality of life for people with chronic conditions such as emphysema, chronic bronchitis, asthma, and pulmonary fibrosis.
