Train to be a licensed Respiratory Care Therapist and help save lives
Respiratory therapists are licensed health care professionals who evaluate, treat,
and care for patients with breathing or other cardiopulmonary disorders.
Working closely with physicians, respiratory therapists are actively involved in the daily care of patients by teaching and promoting respiratory health, administering therapy, working on the code team performing cardiopulmonary resuscitation, or helping to improve the quality of life of people with breathing disorders. Respiratory therapists measure patients’ lung capacity, set up and monitor ventilator equipment, test patients for lung abnormalities, and assist patients with rehabilitative exercises.
