Program Information

School:The Michener Institute for Applied Health Sciences

Description:Breathing - it's one of those things we take for granted. But rising levels of pollution, combined with an aging population, are making breathing difficulties more common. Respiratory Therapists are crucial members of the health care team who treat and monitor patients' cardiopulmonary needs.

As an RT you would expect to be an integral part of the cardiac arrest team, be leaders in the use of mechanical ventilators and other life support equipment, use medications, therapies and tests to assist in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of heart and lung disease.
