Florida Hospital Zephyrhills’ respiratory therapists evaluate and treat all types of patients in need of respiratory care, from premature infants whose lungs haven’t fully developed to elderly patients whose lung health has become compromised by disease. They provide both temporary relief to patients with emphysema or chronic asthma and emergency care to patients who have suffered a heart attack, stroke, drowning, shock or other ailments.
In addition, our Respiratory Therapy Program enables us to offer a seamless continuum of care at Florida Hospital Zephyrhills—a feature not offered at all hospitals.
Our respiratory therapists follow specific, well-defined procedures in accordance with our established protocols, all under the supervision of specialized physicians. Together, our team develops and maintains an individual care plan based on each patient’s specific needs. They also provide complex respiratory therapy for patients on life support in the intensive care unit.
If you have any questions about our services or would like to schedule an appointment with a respiratory therapist, please call us today at (813) 788-0411.
