The Respiratory Failure program is designed to assist in weaning patients from a ventilator. An interdisciplinary team provides individualized care to every patient admitted to the program. The team thoroughly evaluates each patient to best determine the ideal weaning method and the optimum rehabilitation goals. Our team approach ensures that every patient achieves the best possible results. Patients involved in this program receive daily physician oversight, advanced respiratory care modalities catered to individual patient needs, therapist driven weaning protocol, aggressive nutritional management, swallowing evaluation and treatment and progressive mobility to improve strength and function. We also provide patient and family education and counseling.
