I am a Respiratory Therapist. After being asked what I do for a living and I say RT the usual response is “oh so you just give breathing treatments- that must be so easy!” That is NOT all we do. Yes that is ALOT of our job but not entirely. I work in a small hospital so beyond the obvious breathing tx, CPAP, intubation, ect- we also do the echos, dobutamines, EKGs, EEGs, PFTs, and the oh so loved ABG. There is so much more to being an RT than just breathing treatments!
