  • are often called upon by physicians for respiratory counsel
  • are a critical part of the code team and perform CPR. Particularly, establishing a patent airway
  • duties include delivery of oxygen via all types of oxygen delivery devices, administration of aerosolized drugs, Endotracheal Intubation, suctioning, management of life support, weaning of ventilation or life support, management of tracheotomies, drawing and interpretation of arterial blood gas samples, and pulmonary function testing
