Indoor Asthma Triggers and the Respiratory Therapist
Because asthma is a growing public health concern, the American Respiratory Care Foundation has teamed up with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to educate respiratory therapists about the indoor environment and its relationship to asthma. Through this partnership, you have the opportunity to access the resources of the two organizations to share with staff and co-workers, and to help your patients breathe easier.
Here we present two courses:
- Indoor Asthma Triggers and the Role of the Respiratory Therapist
- Allergy Skin Testing and Smoking Cessation and the Expanded Role of the RT
