Respiratory therapists evaluate and treat all types of patients, from premature infants whose lungs are not fully developed to elderly people with diseased lungs. They provide temporary relief to patients with chronic asthma or emphysema, and give emergency care to victims of heart attack, stroke, drowning, or shock.
Hands-on technical know-how combined with a solid understanding of respiratory conditions sets respiratory therapists apart and makes them a crucial component of the health care team. RTs have the opportunity to help their patients through trying times.
