Respiratory therapists care for patients with deficiencies and abnormalities of the cardiopulmonary system. Respiratory therapists treat patients ranging from premature infants to the elderly, and are vital members of emergency response teams. Effective skills such as communication and the ability to work well with others are essential as a practicing respiratory therapist.
The SCCC Respiratory Therapy program is accredited by the Committee on Accreditation for Respiratory Care and the Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs.
