Respiratory Care


We Help Patients Breathe Easy Again

From newborn to seniors, Regional Medical Center’s Respiratory Care team endeavors to make patient’s lives better, one breath at a time. This group of dedicated professionals offers a comprehensive range of respiratory services to promote better pulmonary outcomes from hospital to home. Respiratory Care specializes in the assessment and treatment of respiratory and cardiovascular conditions such as asthma, bronchitis, emphysema, and COPD, and more acute problems stemming from other conditions such as heart attacks, stroke, or trauma as well as complications at birth.

The department scope of care includes, but is not limited to:

  • Diagnostic testing
  • Bronchodilator therapy
  • Hyperinflation therapy/airway clearance techniques
  • Invasive and Non-invasive ventilation management
  • Airway management and resuscitation
  • Neonatal care
  • Pulmonary function testing
  • Oxygen determination studies

In addition to a full complement of inpatient and outpatient diagnostic and therapeutic procedures, RMC's respiratory care staff partners with local schools and offers “Open Airways,” an asthma education program for third through fifth graders in schools located in Orangeburg and Calhoun counties.
