Respiratory Therapy

"The FTCC Respiratory Therapy program is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation for Respiratory Care (CoARC).
Program Goals: the FTCC Respiratory Therapy program is designed to prepare graduates with demonstrated competence in the cognitive (knowledge), psychomotor (skills), and affective (behavior) learning domains of respiratory care practice as performed by registered respiratory therapists (RRTs). The Respiratory Therapy curriculum prepares individuals to perform the duties of a licensed Registered Respiratory Therapist (RRT). RRT’s are a vital member of the healthcare team whose primary focus is maintaining and/or improving a patient’s respiratory effort. RRT’s provide oxygen therapy through a variety of devices to include: aerosol applications, bi-level positive airway pressure (BiPAP), mechanical ventilation, nasal cannulas. RRT’s also perform laboratory tasks such as: arterial blood gas draws (ABG’s), pulmonary function tests (PFT’s), and stress tests. Therapists are found in all areas of the hospital (Emergency departments, ICU’s, general care floors) and work with all age groups." Taken from FTCC's Respiratory Therapy website.
