CHI Health Nebraska Heart respiratory therapists work with Nebraska Heart surgeons, cardiologists, as well as pulmonologists and primary care physicians, in the treatment of pulmonary disease and cardiac surgery recovery. Our respiratory therapists lend their expertise to the organization’s team of cardiologists, electrophysiologists, surgeons, anesthesiologists, and advanced practice clinicians.

Nebraska Heart offers comprehensive respiratory care services. In addition, Nebraska Heart has an in-house pulmonary function laboratory and assists consulting pulmonary physicians with advanced procedures. The organization’s clinical strengths has earned the trust of the physicians and generated clinical autonomy that allows them to utilize the AARC Clinical Practice Guidelines and treat the patient as necessary, improving outcomes.
