Lovin' on RT!

Top Three Reasons I Love Respiratory Therapists:

1. If we've stuck somebody 10 times trying to get a line and labs, and we've only managed to get the line, and we're all out of veins, RT will come down and do an art stick for the labs. And I usually only have to beg for a minute.

2. RT's have great blogs. Respiratory Therapy 101 is on my "Blogs I Check Every Day" List for a reason. And Respiratory Therapy Cave has a damn funny list of 'olins at the bottom of his blog.

3. If I need to bum a cigarette, it's only as far away as the closest Respiratory Therapist.

What's with the cigarettes? Have I not taught you anything? Come on! You are smarter than that... Stop it now! Don't make me come down there! I'll bring the kids with me... and NOBODY wants me to do that...

You're right, though. I have yet to meet an RT who doesn't smoke.

My wife & I are lay-RTs (all the training w/ our daughter; none of the credentials). Neither of us smoke unless you count twenty-plus years of parental second-hand smoke. Maybe we'll spark a trend.

I'm one of the few night shift RTs at my hospital that doesn't smoke...

Thanks for the props - love your blog!

Wow, I somehow missed this plug. Awesome. Thanks. It's so great to know we're appreciated.
