Program Overview

Helping Others Breathe More Easily!

Breathing – it’s one of those things we take for granted. Rising levels of pollution, combined with an aging population, are making breathing difficulties more common. Respiratory technologists are crucial members of the health care team who monitor and help patients with cardiopulmonary needs.  Whether helping a newborn baby to draw their first breath or helping an elderly patient with chronic lung disease, respiratory technologists make a real difference in patients’ lives.  Respiratory technologists provide care in many different situations and environments, from therapy for patients at home with asthma or terminal disease requiring end-of-life care, to emergency care for victims of a heart attack, stroke, drowning, or trauma.

Respiratory Technologists provide care, assessment, evaluation, and monitoring patients ranging in age from premature infants to the elderly. As a respiratory technologist, you must possess good communication skills.
