Respiratory Care

Respiratory care is an allied health profession whose practitioners focus on diagnosis and treatment of cardiopulmonary disorders and diseases. A respiratory care practitioner can be instrumental in assisting a physician in the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of a wide spectrum of disorders affecting the heart and lungs, and specializes in the application of scientific knowledge and theory to practical, clinical problems of respiratory care. A respiratory care practitioner is qualified to assume primary clinical responsibility for all respiratory care modalities, including responsibilities involved in supervision of respiratory technician functions.

If you would like information about a career as a respiratory therapist, you will have opportunities to hear presentations at Jackson College’s Central Campus, Health Laboratory Center (HLC) 204, on Aug. 7 or Aug. 28 (all Thursdays) at 1 or 6 p.m.
