Respiratory Therapists
By Jennifer Kenny

1     Josh was having surgery. There would be surgeons, nurses, and an anesthesiologist in the operating room. There would also be someone helping to monitor his breathing. Who would that be? That's the job of a respiratory therapist.
2     Melanie was in the hospital. She was recovering from pneumonia. Her breathing was still very labored. Who provided an oxygen mask to help her breathe more comfortably? A respiratory therapist did.
3     Jerry was critically ill. He was in the hospital. When he couldn't breathe on his own anymore, the family asked for life support. Who was in charge of monitoring the ventilator? A respiratory therapist was.
4     A respiratory therapist is a health professional who helps people breathe easier. This is often a very critical role. All people must breathe to live. Without being able to do so, a person can suffer brain damage and die within a very small amount of time.
