Respiratory Therapy Week 2022 – Inspiring Excellence in Respiratory Therapy
The NLCHP would like to recognize Registered Respiratory Therapists (RTs) in Newfoundland and Labrador as they celebrate their National Week for their profession. RT’s provide effective healthcare for patients’ respiratory health needs. RTs help patients in many ways including:
Assessing, performing medical tests, and providing a range of treatments for cardiorespiratory disease
Educating patients about lung health and the use of their breathing medication to help manage their own care
Providing airway and breathing support in the ICUs, emergency rooms, and operating rooms
Participating in research initiatives that help improve healthcare and quality of life.
