Respiratory Therapy

Helping You Breathe Easier

There’s no human function more essential than breathing. So when it comes to breathing and respiratory issues, you need the very best in respiratory care. At Saint Agnes, our respiratory practitioners and respiratory therapists provide expert care in all departments of the hospital, including pediatrics, adult intensive care, neonatal intensive care, labor and delivery and more.

Skilled care, compassionate care

All respiratory services at Saint Agnes are provided by licensed respiratory care practitioners. Working under the medical direction of a board-certified pulmonologist, our practitioners are credentialed by the National Board for Respiratory Care and certified by the State of Maryland. 

All respiratory team members maintain current certification in Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) and Neonatal Advanced Life Support (NALS)—so they’re prepared and trained to handle any breathing-related emergency.

 

Advanced Training to Benefit you

The respiratory team stays up-to-date with the latest techniques and the newest research. To maintain certification by the State of Maryland Board of Physicians Quality Assurance, our respiratory therapists complete continuing education credits approved by the American Medical Association, Medical and Chirurgical Faculty of Maryland or the American Association for Respiratory Care.
