Today I sit down virtually with Jerry Luedke, a recently retired and very influential and accomplished respiratory therapist (RT) with almost 50 years of experience. Jerry and I chat about his incredible career, how he changed the field of respiratory therapy in WA state, the beautiful relationships between nursing and RTs and some patient stories that stayed with him.
ALSO – This is overdue but shout out to all of the respiratory therapists for a belated respiratory therapy week! You literally are the cheese to our macaroni.
Jerry! It was such a pleasure to chat with you!
May you and your wife get back to traveling as soon as it is safe to do so!
