Respiratory Care offers the following outpatient services (each requiring a physician's order):

  • EEG: Electroencephalogram, a technique for studying the electrical current within the brain. Electrodes are attached to the scalp. Wires attach these electrodes to a machine which records the electrical impulses. The results are either printed out or displayed on a computer screen. Testing times available Monday - Friday, during a.m. hours.
  • PFT: Pulmonary Function Test, a test designed to measure how well the lungs are working. Pulmonary function tests (PFTs) gauge how the lungs are carrying out their tasks of expanding and contracting (when a person inhales and exhales) and of exchanging oxygen and carbon dioxide efficiently between the air (or other gases) within the lungs and the blood. Testing times available Tuesday - Thursday.
  • PSG: Polysomnography (sleep study), a continuous recording of specific physiologic variables during sleep. Polysomnography typically records brain wave changes (electroencephalogram), eye movements (electrooculogram), muscle tone (electromyogram), respiration, electrocardiogram (EKG), and leg movements. Testing times available nightly, minus major holidays.
  • Overnight Oximetry: A test that monitors the oxygen saturation of the blood through the use of a pulse oximeter over the course of the night. The data is downloaded by a respiratory therapist and interpreted by a physician. This is a very strong clinical indicator of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). Testing times available daily.
