The Lung Disease Management Team

Our respiratory therapists work with your physician and serve as another set of “eyes and ears.” Nurse practitioners and pharmacists also are available in the Lung Disease Clinic to assist you with managing your medications. The team uses videos, printed materials, and hands-on instruction to help you understand:

  • Your respiratory system and your disease process
  • How your medications work and how to use them properly
  • The signs and symptoms of a flare up and how to manage it most effectively

The respiratory therapists can assist you with questions or issues you may have with your respiratory equipment, such as home oxygen, CPAP, nebulizers, inhalers, etc. They also can provide education and other related resources to help you quit smoking.

Once you are established in the Lung Disease Clinic, the therapists are available to answer your questions and can even help you with a flare-up, especially if your physician is not available.
