Respiratory Care: There When You Need Us

I’m proud to be a respiratory therapist…and here’s why

Respiratory therapists provide the hands-on care that helps people recover from a wide range of medical conditions. Therapists get to know their patients, and their patients' families, and have the opportunity to help them when they need it most. Whenever breathing is an issue, respiratory therapists are there, Bringing Breath to Life.
