Respiratory Therapy

About CMH Respiratory Therapy

Respiratory therapy is the assessment and treatment of patients with both acute and chronic dysfunction of the cardiopulmonary system. Columbia Memorial Hospital’s (CMH) respiratory therapy team provides diagnostic testing that helps your primary care provider or specialist evaluate the health of your heart and/or lungs.

CMH Respiratory Therapy diagnostic services include:

  • Heart monitoring
  • 12-lead electrocardiogram
  • Pulmonary function testing (PFT)
  • Electroencephalography (EEG)

CMH’s respiratory therapists work on an out-patient basis, as well provide care to those patients in the Emergency Department and all hospital units 24-hours a day and seven days a week. All therapists are certified in Advanced Cardiac Life Support, Pediatric Advanced Life Support and Neonatal Resuscitation.

Please be aware that some health insurance carriers require pre-authorization for diagnostic tests. Please contact your health insurance company to ask about your coverage. For questions about billing, please contact Patient Financial Services. Our compassionate financial counselors can help you with price estimates, payment arrangements, financial assistance and more.
