What do you like most about being an RT?
Your humble question: What do you like most about it?
My humble answer: To put it simply, I love getting to know people. I love sitting with my patients and having an intelligent discussion I love educating them about how they can stay healthy. I love sharing my own experiences so my patients don't feel they are alone. I love doing invasive procedures like ABGs and suctioning and making these normally unpleasant procedures as simple and easy as possible. I like explaining complicating things to patients and making them simple for the patient to understand. I love my coworkers, and working as part of the doctor-nurse-respiratory therapist team to help patients. I also love a good challenge. I love to use my experience and education to help people. Mainly, I just love working with people. I love helping people.
