Cobre Valley Regional Medical Center Earns Quality Respiratory Care Recognition

Cobre Valley Regional Medical Center has earned Quality Respiratory Care Recognition (QRCR) under a national program aimed at helping patients and families make informed decisions about the quality of the respiratory care services available in hospitals. About 700 hospitals or approximately 15% of hospitals in the United States have applied for and received this award.

The QRCR program was started by the American Association for Respiratory Care (AARC) in 2003 to help consumers identify those facilities using qualified respiratory therapists to provide respiratory care. Hospitals earning the QRCR designation ensure patient safety by agreeing to adhere to a strict set of criteria governing their respiratory care services. Hospitals that meet the QRCR requirements provide a level of respiratory care consistent with national standards and guidelines, and should be commended for their commitment to quality care.

Respiratory therapists are specially trained health care professionals who work under physicians’ orders to provide a wide range of breathing treatments and other services to people with many types of respiratory conditions.

Sleep Studies at Cobre Valley Regional Medical Center

CVRMC offers complete testing for the diagnosis of Obstructive Sleep Apnea as well as many other sleep disorders. All sleep studies will be performed by our clinical staff and will be scored by a Registered Polysomnography Technologist. Final review and interpretation will be performed by a Board Certified Sleep Specialist.

There are a number of treatment options available once sleep apnea has been diagnosed. Successful treatment can prevent or reverse potential life-threatening complications and improve the quality of your life. You will need a signed doctor’s order, any relevant doctor’s notes, and preferably the “Sleep Assessment and Epworth Scale.”

Please contact the Cardiopulmonary Department, at 928-402-1290 for scheduling and testing.
