Respiratory Therapy

Respiratory therapy is the practice of examining patients who are experiencing issues with their breathing. Respiratory Therapists

  • Consult with physicians to recommend a change in therapy based on their evaluation of the patient.
  • Analyze breath, tissue, and blood specimens to determine levels of oxygen and other gases.
  • Manage ventilators and artificial airway devices for patients who can’t breathe normally on their own.
  • Respond to Code Blue or other urgent calls for care.
