These non-medical professionals facilitate the recovery process of patients.
Anyone who faced and overcame serious challenges with breathing - the single factor that can spell the instantaneous difference between life and death - will appreciate the vital role of Respiratory Therapists whose patients range from premature infants with undeveloped lungs to elderly patients with diseased lungs.
