The Respiratory Care Department at Ringgold County Hospital provides a full range of services to all areas of the hospital for patients with respiratory illnesses or disease. Registered respiratory therapists are on duty at the hospital seven days a week during the day and are on call for emergencies. The respiratory care team offers oxygen and nebulizer therapy for our patients as well as pulmonary function tests, arterial blood gas analyses and incentive spirometry. Walled vacuum outlets in patient rooms provide efficient suction for our critical care patients. Sleep studies are coordinated through our department with an independent mobile sleep study partner.
