Respiratory Care

Our respiratory therapists touch every corner of Fairbanks Memorial Hospital and Denali Center with their compassionate and skillful care. COVID-19 has brought much attention to this specialty, but they have been in the trenches long before that taking care of inpatients and outpatients from newborn to end of life. 

What we do

Respiratory Care at FHP is responsible for making sure patients can breathe comfortably, using breathing treatments, hi-flow oxygen, CPAP/BiPAP, and ventilators when necessary. Our Respiratory Therapists are educated, trained and licensed professionals, working therapeutically with patients of all ages and acuity levels. Our RTs work within outpatient services, like pulmonary function testing, EKGs, stress tests, and bronchoscopies, etc. and inpatient areas, like ICU, med surgical floors, ED, and NICU.  Our RTs are on the code blue and rapid response teams.
