Therapists treat people with breathing or cardiac problems. Patients can include premature infants with under-developed lungs or an elderly person with a chronic lung disease.

What types of medical treatments are respiratory therapists involved with?  
There are a variety of treatments performed by therapists: 
  • Ventilator care and management
  • Assistive Breathing Devices (BIPAP/CPAP/Trachs)
  • Breathing treatments
  • Emergency Team duties including CPR (CODES)
  • Critical and diagnostic blood draws
  • Outpatient Testing (Spirometry/Bronchoscopy)
