A person can survive three weeks without food and three days without water, but only three minutes without air.
Our respiratory therapists are an integral part of the interdisciplinary team that drives quality care throughout our hospitals. You are in every unit evaluating, treating and caring for adults and children with known or suspected pulmonary disease, dysfunctions or conditions.
When it comes to treating and caring for patients, your initiative and independent judgment is both sought and respected by the team of caregivers you work alongside. You will direct services that are safe, aseptic, preventative and restorative to the patient. You will help them inhale, exhale, then repeat.
