respiratory therapist working with patient

At North Shore-LIJ’s Respiratory Therapy Department, we believe the best way to provide the highest quality care for our patients is through an empowering team model approach and open communication. Our team of highly skilled respiratory therapists shares a high level of attention to detail, as well as enthusiasm and passion for providing excellent patient care.

We strive to improve the lives of our patients not only by administering respiratory therapy treatment, but by fully understanding the purpose behind each treatment, and all possible side effects. With us, you will directly contribute to the overall quality of patient care, whether in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, Intensive Care Unit, Emergency Department or in-patient care units. You’ll have the opportunity to build your skills through a broad range of responsibilities, including intubation, extubation, ventilator management/weaning, BPAP therapy, nasal CPAP, oxygen therapy, medication nebulizers, arterial blood gas punctures, sampling and interpretation.

As part of a dynamic multidisciplinary team, you will interact with individuals in different specialties as you evaluate the effectiveness of therapy for each assigned patient. You’ll also receive exposure to vastly different cases and utilize the knowledge and skills necessary to provide care to patients of all ages, ranging from neonatal to the elderly.
