Respiratory Care at Doctors Hospital

At Doctors Hospital, Respiratory Care consists of two modalities of care – Cardio and Pulmonary.

The Cardio section consists of a group of highly skilled technicians who perform diagnostic studies of the heart and vascular system. We work closely with our physicians to diagnose cardiovascular disorders in our inpatient and outpatient population. These studies include:

  • Cardiac Echocardiography (ECHO)
  • Venous/Arterial (Carotid) Dopplers
  • Electroencephalograms (EEG)
  • Electrocardiograms (EKG)
  • Cardiac Stress Testing
  • Holter Monitors

The Pulmonary or Respiratory Care section is made up of a number of experienced and highly trained Respiratory Therapists. These therapists work closely with physicians, nurses and other specialists to address the dynamic conditions that affect the way we breathe. We provide treatments to patients in all areas of inpatient and outpatient care using the latest therapies and technology, including:

  • Invasive and Noninvasive ventilation therapy
  • Aerosol/Bronchodilator Therapy
  • Oxygen Therapy
  • Pulmonary Hygiene Therapy
  • Chest Physiotherapy
  • Pulmonary Function Testing
  • Arterial Blood Gas Analysis
  • Newborn Services

All our Respiratory Therapists are licensed by the State of Georgia and credentialed by the National Board of Respiratory Care Practitioners (NBRC).

As the region's leading provider of healthcare, Columbus Regional Health has touched the lives of most of the children and adults in this region through its comprehensive network of services. Located in the West Georgia city of Columbus, Columbus Regional was established in 1986 as a not-for-profit health services organization, but its roots can be traced back to 1836 when the local hospital was a small wooden building on the banks of the Chattahoochee River.
