Luis Garcia | Respiratory Manager

As a respiratory manager at Baptist Medical Center in San Antonio, Luis Garcia serves an essential role in fighting COVID-19. Since the coronavirus attacks the lungs, when a patient is admitted into the hospital and has symptoms of COVID-19, respiratory therapists are notified right away. There are thousands of respiratory therapists in the United States who use specialized skills to help countless people breathe better.

In a recent interview with KSAT.com, Luis said, “I like to see [patients] just breathe. I mean, that’s what I live for. I love to see those people just get better.”
