  • Lakeview’s Pulmonary/Vent Program allows comprehensive rehabilitation to proceed while meeting the needs of ventilator support and weaning. Our experienced team of therapists, nurses and physicians practice individualized treatment protocols to either wean the patient or provide education for self-management techniques. In addition to ventilator and tracheotomy management, the interdisciplinary rehab team will address deficits in:

  • Motor function
  • Continence
  • Self-care
  • Swallowing
  • Cognition
  • Sensory Perception
  • Communication
  • Behavioral Management
  • Our goal is reintegration to home and community with the focus on achieving the highest level of independence possible.
