Telerespiratory is the delivery of respiratory therapy using telecommunications technologies without a respiratory therapist physically present at the point of care.
rtNOW is credited with being a pioneer of “telerespiratory” by the AARC. We are the world’s foremost experts in delivering respiratory therapy via telehealth.
The rtNOW telerespiratory model includes an iPad, a proprietary video chat app, and a rolling, medical-grade stand. Staff at hospitals and skilled nursing facilities can bring the unit into a patient or resident’s room, and speak with a highly experienced respiratory therapist at the tap of a button. It can be used to supplement existing coverage, as well as a provide a 24/7/365 solution.
Our telerespiratory therapists come from many different areas in the United States. They all have a minimum of 5 years of experience and are screened for excellence. Upon a call, the therapists immediately know the equipment your staff has on-site, and will be able to guide them in caring for complex respiratory patients and residents.
