Respiratory therapists care for patients who have trouble breathing—for example, because of a chronic condition such as asthma. Most respiratory therapists work full time. Because they may work in medical facilities that are always open, such as hospitals, they may have shifts that include nights, weekends, or holidays.

Respiratory therapists have a wide range of duties throughout their days including: 

  • - Meeting with and examining patients who have pulmonary diseases, disorders, or complications 
  • - Conducting, performing, and analyzing diagnostic and function tests to assess lung capacity and capability
  • - Working with physicians and nurses to create treatment plans
  • - Treating patients with aerosol medications and chest physiotherapy
  • - Evaluating progress of treatment
  • - Administering inhalants
  • - Documenting care by updating charts and records
  • - Operating mechanical ventilators and other machines
  • - Completing discharge planning by working with other members of the medical team
  • - Training patients how to administer treatments and use equipment on their own
  • - Recommending equipment and treatment for outpatient or home health
  • - Protecting patients (and other healthcare employees) through stringent protocols
