Respiratory Services

We have a Registered Nurse who is certified to conduct and interpret spirometry testing. Spirometry is a common test used to assess how well your lungs work by measuring how much air you inhale, how much you exhale and how quickly you exhale. This test is used to diagnose breathing problems like asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and other conditions that affect breathing.

Our Respiratory Therapist (RT) can assess the cardio-respiratory systems of patients, perform and interpret diagnostic breathing tests, and develop and implement respiratory therapy care plans for clients. The RT also monitors and evaluate patient progress especially for patients with chronic and severe breathing problems and conditions.

Please contact your Family Physicians office to request a referral.
