Respiratory therapists are such a vital component of a hospital team’s battle against COVID-19.

“You honestly can't go through a respiratory pandemic without having a respiratory therapist," Kayla Morton, a respiratory care practitioner at Doctors Medical Center in Modesto said in a recent interview with ABC10 in Sacramento. “These ventilators that everyone's talking about on the news, that's our job.”

Kayla said she joined healthcare because of her love for helping people, especially in times of great need.
