North Metro’s Cardiopulmonary Department is a multifaceted department with a focus on the care of patients with lung and heart disease. Those patients include diagnosis of chronic lung problems, such as asthma, bronchitis, and emphysema, but they also include heart attack and accident victims, premature infants and people with lung cancer or AIDS.

In each of these cases, the patient will receive treatment from a Respiratory Therapist under the direction of a physician. Respiratory Therapists work to evaluate, treat and care for people with breathing disorders. They also perform procedures that provide both diagnosis and treatment. Some of these activities include:

These tests are generally scheduled by your physician on an outpatient basis.

Respiratory therapists are a vital part of the hospital’s lifesaving response team, treating patients with acute and chronic lung disorders with oxygen, aerosolized bronchodilator therapy, and assisted ventilation.

North Metro Medical Center has two levels of Respiratory Therapist: Certified Respiratory Therapist (CRT) and Registered Respiratory Therapist (RRT). Therapists are staffed seven days a week, around the clock for continuum of care.
