Course Overview

Respiratory Therapy is a relatively new branch of Allied Health Sciences and a profession devoted to the scientific application of technology in order to assist in the diagnosis, treatment, management and care of patients with cardiopulmonary and associated diseases. Respiratory therapists work with doctors and other healthcare professionals to evaluate, treat and care for patients who have breathing and other cardiopulmonary disorders.

They also perform diagnostic tests and limited physical examination. Respiratory therapy programs teach students to diagnose and treat cardiopulmonary problems and to help patients maintain their cardiopulmonary health. Respiratory therapy curricula typically cover coursework related to the health, function and treatment of the heart and lungs. Completion of clinical practice hours is often part of the degree requirements.
