Respiratory Services

Helping You Breathe More Easily
Most people take breathing for granted. But if you are having trouble breathing because of chronic lung problems such as asthma, bronchitis, or emphysema, or are having breathing issues due to a heart condition, cystic fibrosis, lung cancer, AIDS or a sleep disorder, breathing can be a major accomplishment.

Catholic Medical Center’s Respiratory Therapy team combines its refined clinical skills with the latest technology to provide a wide range of specialty respiratory services to patients of all ages in critical, emergency, inpatient and outpatient settings. We workin conjunction with the neurophysiology lab, pulmonary function lab and the New England Sleep Center at CMC to offer a full complement of inpatient and outpatient diagnostic services. State-of-the-art diagnostic pulmonary function equipment allows us to perform screening spirometry and complete pulmonary function studies using body plethysmography in a warm and friendly environment.

The goal of our respiratory diagnostic testing and treatment is to have you breathing more easily. You can access outpatient diagnostic testing, as well as 24-hour in-hospital respiratory care, at CMC.

Range of Treatment Options
Depending on your diagnosis, your treatment could include any of the following:
  • Oxygen administration to assist with breathing
  • Mechanical ventilation if you cannot breathe adequately on your own
  • Therapies to help recover lung function
  • Aerosol medications to alleviate breathing problems and to prevent respiratory infections
  • Rehabilitation activities, such as low-impact aerobic exercises to improve chronic lung problems
  • Participating in a smoking cessation program to improve lung function 

All CMC Respiratory Services staff members are licensed by the National Board for Respiratory Care and the State of New Hampshire.
