Respiratory therapists specialize in the identification and treatment of various cardiopulmonary disorders.
Respiratory therapists are an integral part of the healthcare team, providing services such as ventilation and airway management, cardiopulmonary resuscitation, oxygen and aerosol therapy, patient assessment and evaluation, assisting at high-risk births and assisting with anesthesia in the operating room.
In the community, respiratory therapists bring their expertise to home care, asthma and Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) education, rehabilitation, education and medical equipment sales. Respiratory therapists must have the ability to work and practice sound decision-making within stressful environments. Respiratory therapy is a field that is continually changing and requires ongoing engagement in reflective practice and lifelong learning.
