Want a career where your skills would be in high demand? Want the opportunity to care for young and elderly patients who have trouble breathing? Mid-State teaches you real-world skills you need to be a respiratory therapist!
Respiratory care is an allied health specialty used under medical direction in evaluation, treatment, and care of patients with cardiopulmonary problems. At Mid-State, you will learn the therapeutic use of medical gases and related equipment, humidifiers, aerosols, and other environmental control systems. You will also receive instruction in medication, ventilatory support, bronchopulmonary drainage, rehabilitation, airway management, and long-term home care.
You receive both classroom instruction and clinical experience. The hands-on clinical portion of the program is held at various local hospitals and agencies where you will apply classroom learning to actual patients and equipment.
Travel for this program is required. Respiratory therapists in Wisconsin and most states are licensed professionals. The Respiratory Therapist program is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation for Respiratory Care (CoARC).
