Respiratory Conditions of Critically ill Patients

Respiratory conditions constitute a disorder or consequence originating from a disease or pathology previously suffered by the patient.
Cerebrovascular Accidents (CVA) or Cranioencephalic Traumas (CET) can worsen a patient’s condition to the point of needing Assisted Mechanical Ventilation.

Pulmonary Rehabilitation (PR) is defined as a continuous multidisciplinary activity, aimed at people with pulmonary diseases (providing medical care and support to family members), performed by a team of specialists with the objective of reaching and maintaining a level of respiratory sufficiency for patients to remain independent and enjoy the greatest possible social and occupational progress.

To accomplish these objectives, we apply different procedures according to the complexity and pathology, ranging from Assisted Mechanical Ventilation to the recovery of the functional respiratory capacity in patients with restrictive pulmonary diseases (with or without tracheostomy).

Our success rate in Difficult Weaning (being able to remove the ventilator or Assisted Mechanical Ventilation) is one of the highest in the world.

We have a highly specialized medical team, made up of Pulmonologists, Respiratory Endoscopists, Respiratory Kinesiologists, Speech Therapists and Psychologists. In addition, we use state-of-the-art equipment and technology for these treatments (respirators, non-invasive ventilation and support equipment for Weaning -Flux Med System that monitors Respiratory Mechanics-).
