Respiratory Therapy

The Lighthouse can accommodate patients that require more specialized Pulmonary treatments/monitoring. Having a RRT on staff allows The Lighthouse to admit clients that are ventilator dependent. We are able to introduce Ventilator weaning sessions which allow the client to take breaks from the ventilator with close monitoring. This ventilator weaning program has been very successful in helping patients gain their independence  from mechanical ventilation.
