The respiratory care department offers many of its inpatient services on an outpatient basis as well. In addition, several specialized services can be prescribed by doctors. These include:
Electroencephalograms (EEGs) for testing for patients with sleep apnea - a condition that hampers breathing during sleep.
EEG testing helps doctors detect brain wave abnormalities that can lead to breathing disorders.
Electrocardiograms (EKGs) and blood gas analyses can be conducted to better understand how lung function is affecting other systems.
