Bachelor of Science - Respiratory Therapy Major

Amerika Birleşik Devletleri

Ne öğreneceğim?

Ball State’s major in respiratory therapy will prepare you for a career that’s financially, professionally, and personally rewarding.

Respiratory therapists help patients stay healthy or regain their health by evaluating, treating, rehabilitating, and educating to prevent and manage cardiopulmonary diseases.

Graduates provide direct patient care and patient education for people with a wide variety of illnesses and health conditions.

What You Will Learn

Among other skills, you will learn to initiate and manage mechanical ventilation, provide pulmonary rehabilitation, and administer advanced cardiac life support. You will also become skilled in airway management, procurement and analysis of arterial blood gas samples, and in the performance of pulmonary function tests and sleep diagnostic studies.

Procedures performed by therapists include:

  • aerosolized medication delivery
  • bronchopulmonary clearance techniques
  • administration of medical gases
  • lung expansion therapy

Major Requirements

You will graduate from this program with a bachelor of science in respiratory therapy. This major is set up in two phases. First, you will take your University Core Curriculum courses on our campus in Muncie, Indiana. You will finish your degree with professional studies courses taught at IU Health in Indianapolis.
