Learn to Help Others Breathe Easier
Respiratory therapists (RTs) are unsung heroes of health care, providing support and treatment to patients with acute and long-term breathing problems.
As an RT, you’ll need to understand the anatomy and physiology of the lungs and heart, as well as various disorders and diseases which can affect them. You’ll need to understand therapies and interventions available for RTs and what clinical situations call for them. You’ll also need to offer patients a calm, caring professional they can rely on.
