Respiratory Therapy

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.
