For many area residents suffering with breathing difficulties, walking
a few steps can be considered an accomplishment. Many factors contribute
to breathing problems such as a cardiac event, a severe accident, or a
chronic lung problem. Premature infants are also at a risk for breathing
issues. In almost all of these cases, you will be referred to our Cardiopulmonary
Services. The therapists at RGH work closely with you to develop a treatment
plan designed specifically for you.
The RGH Cardiopulmonary staff is available 24/7, offering inpatient and outpatient services.
