Respiratory/Ventilator Care

Respiratory Therapists

Among our specialized clinical services, the Respiratory and Ventilator Care Program
provides care for individuals with acute and chronic respiratory difficulties, ventilator
weanable guests and chronic long-term ventilator residents. Our respiratory / ventilator
guests are placed under the care of a Board Certified Pulmonologist. Experienced Respiratory
Therapists are responsible for the ventilator management and general care of each person's
tracheotomy and airway on a 24-hour basis. GlenBridge has been providing quality care for
ventilator patients for over 16 years with a well defined staff totally committed to the
patients they care for daily.
