Program Description

Breath is life. There are few things scarier than the inability to breathe, even for a short time. Be part of the team that helps patients breathe easier with an Associate of Applied Science (AAS) degree in Respiratory Care from Collin College.

A day in the life of a respiratory therapist might include providing care to patients with lung or heart disorders, managing ventilators in the intensive care units, responding to Code Blue or other urgent calls for care, educating patients and families about lung disease, and consulting with physicians to recommend a change in therapy.
