Respiratory Therapists deal with one of the critical life-sustaining functions of the human body — breathing. As a student at Concorde Career Colleges, you will receive the education and training you need to be a successful professional in this all-important medical field.
As a Respiratory Therapist you will conduct diagnostic testing procedures and administer treatments to improve patients’ breathing, as well as implement and monitor life support equipment.
You will assist physicians in the diagnosis and management of cardio-pulmonary deficiencies and abnormalities, and use sophisticated equipment to measure lung function and monitor heart functions. You might treat newborns, trauma victims, drowning victims, and patients suffering from asthma, bronchitis, coronary heart disease, emphysema, and pneumonia. This is an exciting field in the healthcare community, and our Respiratory Therapy program will help you make the most of your opportunities in it.
