Respiratory disease is a common problem in the United States. Chronic Obstructive Lung Disease, also known as COPD, is now ranked as the third leading cause of death and disability in this country. Respiratory disease can affect patients at any stage of life, and trouble breathing can be a scary experience, but the expert team at Wabash General Hospital is available 24 hours a day.
We offer numerous services to help diagnose, treat and manage a variety of lung and respiratory disorders. These services are provided in the inpatient, outpatient and emergency service settings. Our respiratory therapists are key members of every emergency response team in the organization where they lend their experience and knowledge of patient assessment, life-saving and life-sustaining interventions. They have experience in delivering these services to patients of all ages from the newborn to the geriatric patient and show a genuine care and concern for all patients they treat.
