Respiratory Therapy

The Respiratory Therapists treat people with disorders affecting the cardiopulmonary system such as asthma, emphysema, pneumonia, cardiovascular disorders, and trauma. In the hospital setting, the Respiratory Therapist provides care and life support to patients in the Emergency room, Intensive Care Units, General Hospital areas, Pulmonary Diagnostics Laboratories and other specialty areas such as Rehabilitation. Respiratory Therapists evaluate, treat and care for patients with breathing disorders. 

The course content generally includes topics like Human Anatomy and Physiology, Microbiology, Physics, General Psychology, Developmental Psychology, and Public Speaking etc. 

Courses:
BSc Respiratory Therapy (Eligibility: 10+2 with Physics, Chemistry, Biology)

MSc Respiratory Therapy(Eligibility: B Sc Respiratory Therapy)

Respiratory Therapists (RTs) are trained as “physician-extenders” and are a very important part of a healthcare team. As the name implies, respiratory therapists treat patients with problems related to breathing, such as issues of people suffering from lung disease. They are Patient Care Managers who not only determine the need for respiratory care services but actually administer that care directly to patients. 

Career opportunities will remain good in the near future because of the substantial projected growth of the middle-aged and elderly population. As this population grows, the incidence of lung disease will also increase requiring more services from respiratory therapists. Many therapists can still expect to work in the hospital setting. However, opportunities outside the hospital will continue to grow in Respiratory Therapy Clinics, Diagnostic Clinics, Physician Offices, Nursing Homes, and Patient Homes.
