The Cardiopulmonary Services department of Springs Memorial Hospital is a full service department of licensed respiratory therapist that is specialized in the treatment of Cardiac and Respiratory patients of all ages. Our staff of Certified and Registered Respiratory Therapist provides both therapeutic and diagnostic treatments to inpatients and outpatients with the goal of improving their health and wellness. Respiratory and Cardiac diseases affect many people throughout the United States. Heart disease remains to be the number one cause of death in the US, followed by Respiratory and COPD being the 3rd and 4th.
Most people know Respiratory therapist as the people who give them their breathing treatments or check their oxygen, but respiratory therapist do a lot more. We go throughout the hospital from the nursery to the emergency room. We provide oxygen administration, pulse oximetry, bronchodilator therapy, chest physiotherapy, BiPap/CPAP and ventilator management. We also respond to all emergencies in the hospital.
In the Cardiopulmonary Services department we offer a wide range of outpatient services that include:
Sleep Lab Services
Sleep disorders are prominent in the world today, affecting people of all ages including children. Some have a difficult time getting to sleep, staying asleep, or even staying awake during the day. Most people are told by their loved ones that they snore or have restless legs; these are symptoms that you should speak to your physician about for the possible need of a sleep study. Here at Springs Memorial Hospital, we have a two bed sleep lab that offers a private room, with a home-like setting, and regular queen sized beds. We perform both Polysomnographies (sleep studies), with and without CPAP/BiPap and Multiple Sleep Latency Testing (MSLT). Polysomnographies and polysomnographies with CPAP/BiPap are performed at night, monitoring multiple functions like brain activity, eye movement, respiratory effort, muscle activity, heart rate, and oxygen levels. The MSLT is performed during the day and measures how fast you go to sleep when you should normally be awake.
