Support and Education
It is important to use your respiratory equipment as prescribed by your doctor. Our respiratory therapist will explain why this therapy was prescribed for you and answer any questions you may have.
Product Consultation and Instruction
Our respiratory therapist will educate you on the sleep therapy products you qualify for (e.g., CPAP or bilevel positive airway pressure) and will do a mask fitting to find the one that is right for you. We will provide equipment education and have you complete a return demonstration so you are ready to use your new equipment when you take it home.
Our respiratory therapist will follow up with you to ensure you are benefitting from the use of the prescribed respiratory equipment. At Fort Medical Equipment, our respiratory therapist uses the U-Sleep Tracker Tool to help ensure your therapy is achieving its goal. This tool also allows us to troubleshoot problems you may be experiencing. Our respiratory therapists are able to follow up with patients over the phone or in person.
Our respiratory therapist will communicate with your doctor regarding your progress with your respiratory therapy equipment.
Other Respiratory Therapist Services
Our respiratory therapist will complete a pulse oximetry evaluation to determine if you qualify for an oxygen-conserving device.
* All pulse oximetry assessments require a signed order from your physician prior to the assessment.
