Respiratory Care Practitioner (Respiratory Therapist)
Isn’t it wonderful to say that your job, as a respiratory therapy care practitioner is to preserve the breath of life? Your other monikers might be “respiratory therapist” or “inhalation therapist,” but whichever title you use, you treat patients with breathing difficulties and work with all age groups from infants to the elderly. As a respiratory care therapist, you also operate and maintain respirators, ventilators, and other types of breathing equipment.
Whether you are employed in a hospital, where you treat victims of illness or injury, or a home health care agency, helping stroke victims, those with lung disease and emphysema, or working with an ever-growing population of sleep apnea patients, we know you care deeply about what you do.
We also know training to become a respiratory care practitioner took years of education, examination and practical application. To practice in California, a license is required through the Department of Consumer Affairs’ Respiratory Care Board. The projected growth of the middle-aged and elderly populations is expected to increase the risk of heart and lung disease, and more respiratory therapists will be needed. If you are an individual seeking your California license and are facing obstacles in obtaining it or are already an RCP whose license is the subject of investigation, it’s important to engage the services of a seasoned license attorney and not attempt defending your license alone.
