About

Respiratory therapists work with patients who experience asthma, cystic fibrosis, emphysema and trauma. The Respiratory Therapy program is offered by The Ohio State University.

Overview

Therapists provide life support for premature infants, give medical gases and aerosol medications, assure airway and bronchopulmonary hygiene, perform cardiopulmonary resuscitation, and are responsible for life-support systems. Therapists also assess patients and perform diagnostic procedures that include measuring cardiopulmonary volumes, pressures, electrocardiograms and arterial blood gases.

Study abroad

Students in Respiratory Therapy program from The Ohio State University are encouraged to contact the Office of International Affairs to find study abroad experiences related to health care that can strengthen their applications to majors and graduate study programs.

Possible careers

Many recent graduates find jobs at major medical centers, in community hospitals and in children’s hospitals. Others work for home care providers, medical specialists, lung associations, colleges and universities, pharmaceutical companies, respiratory equipment manufacturers, and suppliers.
