Respiratory Therapy

The respiratory therapist cares for patients with deficiencies and abnormalities of the cardiopulmonary system. The respiratory therapist also provides care to a diverse group of patients ranging from newborn and pediatric patients to adults and elderly. Todays therapists participate in the development and implementation of patient care plans, disease management and patient education involving such disease states or conditions as asthma, emphysema, pneumonia, cystic fibrosis and postoperative surgical conditions.
