Respiratory Therapists mentioned on WebMD Blog

In my quest to find RT mentioning blogs I found this December webMD post about Respiratory Therapists. I like the bit about RT being in the basement. That was true of several hospitals I worked at, but by no means all.

If you are new to a community and have asthma or COPD and want to know the best pulmonary specialist for your care, I think that a local RT will steer you to the best pulmonologist, based on their experiences with most of the doctors in your new community. RTs are easily found by going to your local hospital and asking for the RT department (often in the basement, because that’s where the ventilators were traditionally stored).
