Complex Respiratory Care Clinic

The Complex Respiratory Care clinic is a multidisciplinary clinic that provides care to medically fragile children with chronic respiratory insufficiency requiring technological support at home. The primary goal of this clinic is to assist the family caregivers to facilitate and maintain home care of their medically fragile child and to promote integration with community resources.


Referral to the Clinic should be limited to patients who require either

1. long-term home oxygen
2. non-invasive mechanical ventilation
3. invasive mechanical ventilation via a trachesotomy
4. assessment to determine the need for respiratory technology at home
