Vitalograph’s Exhale Podcast featured in RT Magazine

It’s great to see RT magazine USA mention our Exhale Podcast and specifically the “Ask the Respiratory Therapist” series. In the podcasts Vitalograph’s Mark Russell speaks to Respiratory Therapists and PFT Technicians about their roles, their experience during the pandemic and their hopes for the future.

Troy Pridgeon, Executive Vice President, US Sales & Operations commented “These interviews of RTs and their colleagues on the frontlines say a lot about the pressure and the courage of the past 18 months. The days have been long, the breaks have been few, and the urgency has been unrelenting. The intent of these interviews is to shed some light of these medical heroes and what they endure day after day during the COVID pandemic.”
