RCU (Respiratory Care Unit) at a chest hospital is a specialized unit that provides care for patients with respiratory and chest-related conditions. The main focus of the RCU is to provide treatment and support to patients with conditions such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), asthma, pneumonia, and other lung disorders.


The services provided by the RCU at a chest hospital may include:


  1. 01. Monitoring of vital signs and oxygen levels to ensure the patient's stability.
  2. 02. Administration of breathing treatments such as oxygen therapy, nebulizer treatments, and bronchodilator therapy.
  3. 03. Management of mechanical ventilation for patients who are unable to breathe on their own.
  4. 04. Monitoring of patients for signs of respiratory distress and providing appropriate interventions.
  5. 05. Education and training for patients and families on breathing techniques, self-care, and disease management.
  6. 06. Coordination of care with other medical departments, such as pulmonology and critical care, to ensure a comprehensive approach to the patient's care.

The RCU is staffed by respiratory therapists, nurses, and other healthcare professionals who have specialized training in respiratory care. The goal of the RCU is to provide the highest level of care to patients with respiratory and chest-related conditions, with the aim of improving their quality of life and helping them manage their conditions effectively.
