For students interested in combining technical duties with personalized patient care, the job of respiratory therapist stands out. This program focuses on the responsibilities and rewards of the position, the skills and qualities it requires, and the financial and personal advantages a registered respiratory therapist can expect. Presenting interviews with both young and veteran RRTs, the video describes the 2-year and 4-year training programs that lead to the position and the duties an RRT performs, such as evaluating a patient's breathing capacity, setting up and initializing a ventilator, guiding patients through ventilator or nebulizer treatments - and perhaps even joining a rapid response medical team. The chance to work in a variety of settings and assist many different types of patients is also explored. Recommendations for appropriate high school courses in biology, chemistry, and math are spotlighted. Correlates to national and state board certification standards.
