Respiratory Therapy


The Respiratory Therapy Department at Bradley County Medical Center is staffed with respiratory therapists 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to meet the needs of the patients, physicians and the community.

The staff of respiratory therapists is trained to treat conditions of the cardiopulmonary system and can include both diagnostic and therapeutic procedures. The Respiratory Therapy Department is responsible for taking blood specimens, analyzing them to determine levels of oxygen, carbon dioxide and other gases, and interpreting the data obtained from these specimens. They also perform pulmonary function testing in order to determine the type and severity of lung impairment. With several Cardiac Outpatient Clinics being held at Bradley County Medical Center, the respiratory therapists also work with the cardiologists to perform many diagnostic procedures without the patient having to travel away from home. Along with these services, they also perform various treatments which are ordered by the physician to treat various conditions.

Disease education and symptom control are also a large part of our offering to the community.

To contact the BCMC Respiratory Therapy Department please call 870-226-4325.
